Timberland makes great ones. They have outlets too. I am on season 3 of mine and they get used 4x a day for dog walks in the winter.

Not exactly high fashion, but they are seriously the most fantastic boots ever. And I've tried many of those recommended above (Sorel, Northface, etc.).
I live in Minnesota too and I like those a lot. I'll be looking for new boots for next year, as my current pair has started to looking pretty beaten up. (They are more fashionable than practical.)

Thanks for the tip!
Yes, give them a try :-) They usually go on sale at REI at the end of the season!

I just moved to Wi a few months ago and bought these...
Merrell Snowbound Mid Waterproof Winter Boots - Women's - Free Shipping at REI.com

Works great,waterproof and warm, aren't overly ugly or terribly expensive.

I think for the most part all real winter boots are pretty ugly.

The alternative around here seems to be a stylish rain boot with a seriously warm, heavy duty liner.

I like sorrels and the north face boots, both very practical and very warm (also a Canadian prairie girl, where it gets to -30C, or -22F, or colder regularly, often with deep snow).

I just bought these:

No. 6 Clog boots

They're pricey, but worth it, to me. I walk a lot in the city and needed something that was warm with good foot support. They are super duper comfy.

I also have a pair of Uggs that I bought to wear to inauguration in '09. They are also shearling, look like riding boots, zip up with a thick lug sole. Four years later, they look good as new. Great in the snow/cold/rain, with good support. (Regular Uggs provide no support for my high arches.)

Is there a name or pic I can reference for something similar by ugg available this season?

***

I wound up just buying these cute little Sporto snowboots w/ pompom laces, etc. from Macy's bc the weather was really bad and I couldn't wait another day to order or shop around. And the style is "Lisa."



But I plan to invest a "real" pair of snowboots, eventually. Great suggestions and pics, everyone!

I didn't see anything on their site that looked the same for this season. When I'm back home this weekend, I'll take a pic for you.
