not sure this really fits your mandate BUT the classic LL Bean bean boots are killer. I have a pair lined with shearling and I put in a felt insole keeping me warm beyond -20 C. They are my winter boots, not so mid-seasony but the unlined variety could be. I would certainly wear these to do all the things you're talking about..haven't paired them with a dress yet mind you
no questions asked. They are still honouring this as of a couple years ago though I haven't had to do so yet...in 5 years...2 years ago a friend found a pair in his parents basement and the leather uppers were dried out and cracked. He mailed them back and they replaced the uppers completely at no cost (shipping one way I believe)
As I said above, I've had mine 5 years and they're still doing great with semi regular maintenance really just Dubbin and occasionally some vinegar mixed with water to get out the salt...and that's on some of the most recklessly/heavily salted city streets of North America as a pedestrian.
OK so the lower is molded rubber up to the ankle and the leather upper is lace up. I regularly step in slush puddles that go above the rubber line (with abandon some might say..) and have never got wet feet as a result.
Made in USA not all bean products are, but these are - even though its not easy to track the components of the boot, this is in itself a plus to me..knowing that someone is making a living wage to manufacture things I buy is important to me. There's also this : http://www.llbean.com/customerService/aboutLLBean/sourcing_and_labor_rights.html
$$$: very decently priced if you are paid in USD. I'm not, so it hurts a bit, but made in canada is even harder to find (new, though I've found some great like new used workboots made in Quebec in likely the 70's...)
LOOK: not everyone's style for sure...
SOLE/GRIP: the sole can be slippery after 5 years...I have a very intense wear pattern on the soles of my shoes though..basically most of my weight is concentrated in the centre of the ball of my foot and so that spot has worn to the point of looking like a bald tire but like a tire, these boots spend lots of time on pavement. Its most problematic on ice and shiny wet floors.
EDIT: I fully expect to have these boots for the rest of my life.
hope that helps!
