best sh*t kicking boots for Fall 2017

It appears that the Autumn Equinox has graced us with its classical West Coast take on Fall. Rain. And lots of it. 

I've braved many a blustery and rainy November-March seasons to have valid street cred on the best sh*t kicking boots for this Fall season. Best part about these recos? You can pick these suckers up right now in Vangroovy.

If you're in need of some new galoshes, read on.

Ugg Bonham boot

No, not the ones synonymous with PSLs and yoga pants. These updated boots are water resistant and warm. No stinky, sweaty Ugg feet here.

Hunter Original Mercury Chelsea boot

My last pair of short Hunter boots lasted for nearly 8 years. These suckers were my go-to for when I didn't know what the day had in store. The shorter length is great for larger calves and thick wool socks.

Blundstone Unisex Chisel Toe Pull-On boot

Does it get more PNW than these puppies? I'll let the boot speak for themselves and stop right here.

Sorel Emelie Winter boot

Don't you love it when it snows and we get all excited and then 2 hours later it turns to slush? Yeah, me neither. Sorels know whats up and have been keeping Canadians dry since 1962.

Native AP Apex boot

Vancouver brand Native have upped the boot game with these sawtooth rubber outsoles and Scotchgard water repellent system. Plus they look fly.

Timberland Magby Chelsea boot

Relive your Jenny from the Block days with these Timberlands. Scratch that, the only thing early 00s about these boots are the brand name. Replace the stereotypical work boot for sleek, minimal style in these chelsea boots.

Dayton Aurora boot

Got money to spend? These hand-made, quality boots are made in Vancouver and tailored to your foot. With Dayton, it's more than a boot... it's an experience and a lifestyle.

Fluevog Derby Swirl

Rounding out the list of boots is the quintessential and quirky Fluevog. Grunge meets modern day in the Derby Swirl boot. These boots are known for their comfort so you'll be sure to trudge lightly (oxymoron, I know) from Gastown to West End.

What's your tried, tested and true boot that gets you through the soggy months?
