Joe Mullinswrote a review of Patagonia Footwear Ranger Smith Waterproof Mid Boot - Men's on October 27, 2010
I bought these as heavy duty hikers, for southern enviroment. With the Polartec lining, I think they would hold up in any enviroment. I actually changed jobs recently, and I wear them with dress pants, shirt w/tie, and sports coat. I'm never buying anything but Patagonia shoes again.
