There are several good brands I'm sure, but my favorite has always been Lacrosse.http://www.lacrossefootwear.com/category/cold+weather+boots.doOur winters here in Michigan may not be as bad as Finland, but surely they are harsher than most. I use lightweight neoprene Burly's in the late fall for deer hunting, then heavyweight pac boots in the winter for ice fishing and clearing my driveway. Lacrosse has never given me a reason to try others.
Doc Martens are total AZZ kickin boots. As for winter footwear I guess that I have become an expert since I work in a -20 environment at work. Insulated boots are great as long as you know what to wear under them. I have tried all methods to keep my feet warm. I have found that goretex and thinsulate boots are great as long as you wear light breathable socks and only one pair of them. Anything else and your feet sweat and you get cold easily. I have a pair of 600 gram rockys and they are great but I tried 2 pair of socks and my feet sweat too much and they get cold.
Sorels are great! They would be overkill for SE MO though...I just wear my Gore-Tex, Vibram soled Montrail Torre GTX hiking boots.
