What kind of boots do you wear?

Since I started riding in the winter I've been wearing the same pair of tall Doc Martens with good socks, tights, etc, but they are finally worn through and it's definitely getting too cold for holey boots.
(Sorry if there's a thread on this, but I couldn't find one and would appreciate a link if there is one).
Any suggestions? I am a girl and do not want anything fuzzy or cute but nothing too manly either(would like vegan, but I know how boots can be). So. I see pics of shoes in the ssfg forum all the time, so how about showing me your winter footwear?

I wear LL Bean Snow Sneakers. http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/sto...Search&feat=sr

These things are rated down to -5f. I've only worn them to 28f so far, and my feet were warm. I'm confident that they'll do the job in lower temps. Another nice thing is they fit inside my toeclips.

Those are both excellent suggestions. I don't shop much, so I never know where to look.
Thanks
