I bought these boots for those snowy/rainy days in Michigan during the winter. I have used them in snow, rain, mud, and on icy pavement. They have exceeded my expectations. These are not rain boots, nor are they snow boots but they will keep your feet warm and dry for a few hours in either of these conditions. I have had no leaks and they are fairly warm in snow with a thicker pair of socks. They are very comfortable and I often use them on snowy/rainy days when I have errands to run as they are not too hot to wear inside. Overall they are great for everyday use and work quite well for more demanding conditions. They work for what I use them for, so be sure to evaluate what you want out of these before you decide. I wear a 10-10.5 in most shoes so I went with an 11 and they fit well.

Just bought a pair 30 days ago for winter storm. It really disappointed me; it's not at all waterproof. Wear it when the storm hit and at the end of the day my feet are all wet...it sucks.

I'm not a regular hiker or outdoorsman. I bought these mainly because of their styling. But I am continually impressed by their comfort. Last week, I was at an indoor, all-day event that required a lot of walking. I wore these & my feet felt as good that night as they did that morning.

The most comfortable shoes I've ever had in this style. They are so nice I wanted to get my wife a pair only to find they don't have them in a women's version. I will buy these shoes again.

I was nervous buying boots online especially after reading that they run a full size too small....but I went ahead and took the advice and they fit perfectly. These boots are super comfy and warm. They felt broken in right out of the box, feel more like shoes than boots, great buy!

Lots of others have reviewed this as smaller than sized, and narrow. I wear a 10.5 normally, and I have a wide foot. I ordered a 10.5, PERFECT fit. More comfortable than my DC's, plenty of width, doesn't feel like it is constraining your foot. A very solid feeling boot/shoe. Ordered it expecting to have to send it back due to fit issues, but I could not be more pleased with the comfort, style, and value of these shoes.

These boots are wonderful! But they run very small, at first I tried a 10.5 which I am accustomed to wearing. That didn't work. Then I tried an 11. That didn't work. So my next option is an 11.5.

Works for work and day hikes. I would consider them water resistant, not water proof.

I work in construction so I am walking all day. I have always worn Osolos in the past and love them. But these were half the price so I thought I would give them a try! They are definitely the most comfortable boots that I have had on my feet. I told my wife these are my new go to boots. But I gave them three stars, overall. I have had these boots for three weeks and on my right boot, the seam on the side is separating where the suede meets the blue material. I was very surprised. I never do these reviews, but since I liked them so much I had to give my two cents since they ripped so quickly . I guess it is back to Osolos.

Was in windchill 27 below in MN and they worked great. They kept snow off my ankles and feet in long treks. Snug rubber top - stayed warm with only thin dress socks, and completely waterproof in what became deep slush. Feet can get hot In warmer temps.

A great boot. I have worn NF shoes for years and have consistently worn a size 12. I had to reorder these in a 13, so be warned that they run a little small. With a 13, I have enough room for light to medium hiking socks. These boots are really quite warm for normal activities; you wouldn't want to sit outside in sub-freezing temperatures for 10 hours, but they will keep your feet warm. They seem to be well made and very sturdy. The color and style are great, too!

Awesome shoe. If you have a wide foot you'll need to buy 1/2 to 1 size larger than what you normally wear.

I liked these boots very much, I normally wear a 10 but I ordered a 10.5. One foot was nice but the other was irritated due to something on the front of the shoe. I am returning for another one to see if there's a difference. Overall, this is a sick looking shoe and I'm looking forward to getting another one back.

I love the waffle stomper 70s look to these boots. They even come with red laces. Okay, that's the looks - I have yet to hike in these bad boys but from the feel of it they're pretty light and the tread is nice. We'll see how it holds up to ice soon enough. Immediately, the back part of the ankle bothered me but that might just be a break-in issue. Also, I usually wear a 10 with a little room to spare for insoles or thicker socks. These 10s are snug. Really snug. I might have gotten a 10 1/2 had I known. As it is, they'll probably work as they stretch a bit.

Really nice looking boot, and the grip seems fantastic, but they were too small. (I normally wear between a 13 and 14; the 14s I ordered were a little too little on my larger foot.)

Great looking shoe. You will definitely need to order a size up. I wear a size 11 and read the reviews, so I ordered 11½. The shoe was still too small. Returned for a size 12.

Warm. Comfy. Roomy. Stylish (as opposed to the other reviewer who thought they were ugly). Require some break-in time. Size 11.5 ran a half-size small for me -- got 12 instead.

This boot has a great throwback, classic look. Although this boot is super comfortable it lacks sufficient arch and ankle support. I was hoping to use this boot as a light day hiking boot, but I guess all I will use it for now is walking around town.

Bought these shoes a few weeks ago after the Arctic Vortex and it has survived a trip up to Canada where it's a constant winter and currently the Polar Chill over the northeastern corner of America. They're waterproof and I've walked for over 5 miles in snow that's about a foot deep and my feet stayed dry (a little wet from the sweat, yes gross) and I did not feel feet cramps or pinching or anything. Very comfortable and there's plenty of cushion for the feet. Also warm as it's insulated. Yes, the style is kind of retro so you'd have to be happy with that (which I am). I bought and tried a few more pairs and returned them via Zappos and this is the one I've kept and will keep. If I had it exactly my way, I probably would've gotten a 1/2 size larger but even the size I got, which are my actual feet size, works perfectly. I'm thinking more along the lines of wearing 2 pairs of socks which might be a tad tight.

Great boots! They are as comfortable as a pair of sneakers yet provide great protection and warmth. I have worn them out for 3 hours of walking in -3Farenheit in the snow and my feet stayed warm and dry.

Thoroughly impressed so far. These boots have a classic look as well as a great feel. I will admit that at first the upper shaft of the boot was a bit stiff and slightly uncomfortable, but after a solid day of breaking them in, they feel fine. They are warm and dry in normal conditions (I've stomped in a few icy puddles to test this), and they are light and flexible; a key feature I wanted. They have the feel of a rugged sneaker with plenty of support and cushion for comfort. All in all a great winter boot, especially for everyday use in a range of conditions. I would advise getting a half-size larger for thicker socks.

This boot is almost as amazing as Zappos. Super comfortable, good support, and they stay dry. I wish they were a little less puffy looking, but I guess thats to be expected with the PrimaLoft construction. It is also less noticeable if you wear with a narrower leg jean, as opposed to a boot cut. Judging by other reviews, this might also be avoided by moving up a half size from normal, but I thought they actually fit pretty true to size.
