The Blizzard of 2013, affectionately named ‘Nemo’, hit New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts enough snow that if the storm had a soundtrack it would be a mash-up of lyrics that included DMX–“Stop, drop, shut’em down open up shop”–Puff Daddy–“Take that….take that…take that”–and Ed OG and Da Bulldogs’, “I’m the bread and you’re just a crumb off.”
This bad boy of a snow storm hit Worcester, Mass. with more snow than the Blizzard of ’78, and set a new record for snowfall in a 24-hour period–28 inches!
So, needless to say, I’ve been wearing boots and other snow-appropriate footwear: Timberland 6″, Nike Air Goadomes, Vasque Sundowner GTX and Merrell Wilderness boots, to name a few. (Yesterday, I actually wore the Burn Rubber MT580 “White Collar” because I was tired of wearing boots.)
Yeah, I can write about the difference between the craftsmanship of the Timberland 6″, which were made in China, compared to the made-in-Italy Merrell Wilderness boots, but I wanted you to get a glimpse of the types of shoes and sneakers that I see on people’s feet.
Here we go!
