Default Winter Backpacking Boot Suggestions?

Thanks again for the jacket suggestion, now I need to find a good pair of boots for the trip. I'll be in europe for 2-3 months starting at the beginning of Dec. I'll be up and down the continent, in milder and colder temps and I'm sure I'll see some inclement weather. These will be the only footwear I bring, so they have to be comfortable as well. I've been looking at a few boots, but I'm not sure if they will be winter-ready enough but be good for the day to day traveling of backpacking. Anyone got suggestions?

I opted for a good warm pair of shoes, and these http://www.overshoe.com/recreational...tail.php?s=VIS
They will keep me warm and dry in rain or snow, and they are very compactable. Thanks to tumbleweedz's suggestion, I also got these to use as well http://www.polarcleats.com/products/
Cheers
Marc
