I'm looking for a waterproof or water resistant shoe or boot for the upcoming winter walking on sidewalks and parking lots that have up to an inch of water and 3 inches of slush. I'm in the habit of walking if it's under 1 km each way. In regular leather shoes the water always penetrates, result is cold wet feet and the leather is permanently damaged (less if using use waterproofing spray or "dubbin").

Got my eye on Rockports with the "Hydroshield" feature (they have many style variations) that are about $170 full price in Canada but often on sale 50% off (Sears). I wonder if they can keep me comfy dry without the material becoming ugly and worn out from the water exposure. I have seen other boots that have rubber on the bottom couple of inches so they would probably be more water tolerant, but not as good looking.

Check out Shoe Therapy (Bay and Bloor area). I've had a few of my shoes repaired there and happy with the results.

No, for almost $400 that's a rip off. You can get Meermin shoes (Italian leather, goodyear welt, mostly constructed in Shanghai, finished in Spain) for about $250. You can also get some nice made in UK shoes from Herring that are made by Barker and Loake for less than $300 right now:

I didn't realize Meermin was so cheap. Is that off their website or from a distributor?

I have some meermin balmoral boots for sale in the bst section. Meermin shoes are one hell of a deal if you get a pair without any construction/quality issues.
