These boots not only look great, they keep my feet warm and dry on the coldest of days in Indiana.They give good traction even on ice. Easy to clean, just wipe them off with a damp cloth. My friend liked them so much that she's buying a pair. I would definitely buy them again and recommend them to anyone.
I got these because where we live, in the winter, it gets pretty cold and wet. I also ordered a pair for my daughter who is in california to keep her feet warm and dry. I like that I can wear them in the snow and wet and my feet stay dry and still pretty warm, but when I wear them for very long, less than an hour, they become uncomfortable and my feet begin to really hurt. Comfortview, I have noticed, is a hit or miss kind of product. I have some comfort view stylish boots, that I love and can wear for a long period, most of the school day, and they don't get to painful until near the end of the day. But these were painful soon after I put them on. I really needed water proof boots and I'll keep them, but bring something more comfortable to wear during the day and only use these outside to get to the car and back. Maybe I'll find some gel insoles and see if that helps.
I needed a good wide calf boot that would keep my feet and ankles dry on those rainy and snowy days, as well as provide a good grip on slippery sidewalks and streets. These boots are ... perfect. I have issues with my legs so to have a mid-calf wide width that is exactly that, is pretty awesome in my book. And! They fit well whenever I wear leggings, not having to leave them outside of the boot, and thus negating the boot's purpose. Walking with these boots on??? This is like walking on a cloud! They have super soft shock-absorbing cushioning in the heel which makes for an even more comfortable wear. I never had a "break in" period with these boots. They felt great from the first time putting them on. The tread on the soles doesn't look particularly well suited for slippery sidewalks, but I got to try them out the other day on ice, and they did quite well. I'm 100% satisfied!
I ordered wide width, and as another review stated, these are narrow. I wear medium or wide, depending on the shoe, but these are the most narrow I have ever seen for a wide width label. However, as I ordered them for snow day wear, I can still use them for that. I will even hope that some stretching may occur. The price was good, and they appear sturdy.
Love the zipper. These boots are very comfortable and warm. They are good for snow but beware, they are water resistant and NOT completely waterproof. If you step in a rain puddle they will soak through.
I bought the basic black boot and am happy with the material, weight and look of the boot. I wear a 9W and the boots fit good around calf as well. This is a comfortable warm stylish boot and quick to get on and off with side zipper. This is not a heavy duty work horse boot though, I have a pair of heavier hefty snow boots for any major snow. I would definietly buy this boot again and probably will.
I wore these on trip to the mountains of South Dakota, where it snowed the whole time. I wore these when going out into snow more than 12 inches deep. They were great at keeping my feet warm and dry. The bottoms weren't as grippy as the other boots I purchased but they worked fairly well on the icy ground.
These are my second pair - got the grey ones last year, and the taupe for Christmas. I have arthritis in my knees and ankles, so getting boots on was nearly impossible until these! I love them...they are warm, waterproof, and comfortable for hours.
For several years, I haven't been able to find boots that fit. Most of them are either very uncomfortable, too short for tromping through high snow (I live in Maine), or won't fit over my calves. These are a delight! They are comfortable enough that I can wear them for hours on end and they fit beautifully.
I was blown away at how perfect these boots met my expectations, and for someone with advanced osteoarthritis, the zip up front makes these boots perfect. I purchased them for when (or if) we get a heavy snow, and they are "weather resistant" and a great material. 100% thrilled. Would buy again and again.
The gunmetal color shows as more white in the picture. But, in reality, they are very silvery...and not in a classic way but more of a disco tacky way. They are not at all like the picture shows. The shoe is a full size smaller than stated, so if you order, go up a size if available.
