Tretorn Abisko

Although they are a bit heavy (each shoe weighs 1 pound 6 ounces), the Abiskos are both durable and waterproof – and the treated leather above the rugged rubber retains its shape and color better than most. The elastic panel at the top of this pair means they're easy to slip on for a quick trip to the woodpile. And it's hard to beat the feeling of the built-in felt sock liners. [$150; tretorn.com]
