In reference to price range, sub-$350ish. If it were north of that, it would have to be outstanding.

Water resistant will probably lend to a more versatile, broad number of options. I don't foresee going hiking in these as we'll be in urban environments. The most I'm concerned about is slushy snow/sleet, rain puddles and not walking around with wet feet all day.

I'm envisioning something leather with dainite soles, or something leather souls.
I see no problem with getting "regular" leather boots (with your options) if you condition them and treat them leather will repel water, certainly snow and slush too. Look more at construction and where any gaps are that could let in water.
