Wear them all day and your feet will be swimming in their own sweat by the end of the day. I do have a pair of Bean boots, I'm not totally against them, but I only wear them when it's REALLY wet.
    This is my approach to winter here in New Hampshire. If it's snowy or messy outside, I wear a pair of Timberland waterproof leather hiking boots on my "commute" (drive) into the office, then just change into my shoes once I get in. On the normal days, I just throw some rubber golashes over my shoes and take them off at my desk.

    I have the L.L. Bean Maine Hunting Shoes in 10" w/Gore tex lining. A bit of a pain to get on/off. Find I only really wear them in really bad/slushy weather. For just regular/dry snow, find myself reaching for Salomon Quest 4d and changing in the office. Currently considering shorter bean boots (gumshoe or 6") or Danner Vertigo 917 for Fall/Spring rain/light snow.

    My vote goes to Danner Mountain Light's that have been treated with Obernaufs.
