Default ice/snow footwear

What's your preferred footwear for strolling around the village after boarding? It looks like a lot of people wear duck boots - makes sense since they're waterproof so no worries about walking through slush and puddles. If you wear duck boots when strolling around a ski village then which brand/model do you prefer? Or do you prefer a different type of footwear for this?

I just wear normal canvas mid-top shoes that i sprayed with heaps of waterproofing stuff. They've been working fine so far. The snow just falls off if you stomp anywhere. I am looking into some bigger boots, like sorrels for when we actually start getting some decent snow!

I wear my boa boots in town and just don't tighten the boas. If it isn't that cold, I'll just wear my flip flops

sorel boots are nice. just use whatever you use for your winter footwear. most resorts sidewalks are better taken care of anyways, even if you dont have any winter footwear.

Cheap $50 boots from Wal-Mart. It's what I wear to work, to walk around town, and to do anything else if it's wet outside. Other than that I roll the cheap sneakers from Ross.
