I was searching for a good winter boot that I could just slip on and go walk the dog or slip on to go to the hockey rink. This boot is awesome. Great fit around the ankle, easy on and easy off. The zipper stays up and it is waterproof and rated to -40°F. Which is the average temp in Minnesota for more than half the year. I was comparing this boot with the model offered by Sorel. The Kamik has more support and a padded collar that keeps out snow and cold. Great boot. In addition, Zappos had the boot delivered three days after I ordered using standard ground shipping. This was a great transaction.

It looks good, tread looks as if it would work nicely in snow. Definitely a size smaller than what used to be a 10 and the ankle/leg very tight and might loosen with use. Was disappointed.

A real bargain. These boots are very comfortable and compare and perform as well as Sorels and other boots I have that cost more than twice as much. They are warm and fit very well. I highly recommend them.

Absolutely the best winter boots for snow and ice. I purchase them for my husband and he still continues to rave about the comfort, warmth and accessibility these boots provide. It is his go to boot for the storms and blizzards we've had this year. Originally purchased as an easy on-and-off when he went skiing is now the all the time boot.

It is okay. Feels a bit loose, weird on the heels. Not easy to walk for long distances. Very easy to take off and put on though. That's the whole purpose of getting something like this. Would have been more comfortable if it was a bit shorter.

Very warm and waterproof, but the comfort leaves something to be desired. The boot doesn't include an insole and the padding in the heel is minimal. After walking around in them for a while my heel started to hurt. I had to order a size up from my normal shoe size for them to fit properly. Unfortunately, I'll be returning them to try a different brand.

These boots are pile lined, the perfect height without too much bulk under the pant leg, quick entry with zipper and very warm with only one heavy sock on! They are well made with an excellent traction sole and totally waterproof! Order exactly one size larger for correct sizing! These are the best boots that I have ever owned! I bought a pair for my 94 year old father, too! He loves them!

Good boots for the price. The back comes down too far, seems they would catch snow. They are a somewhat strange fit too, tight on the mid-foot but loose in the heel.

Super fast shipping! Boots feel good, and seem very comfortable. I hope the zipper holds up and the boot doesn't get loose since you can't tie them tight. I took everyone's advice and went up a size and they fit great. I wear a 13, but ordered a 14 and they fit perfect.

Bought these for my husband and he absolutely loves them. He says they're so comfortable and warm. As suggested by others, I purchased one size up and they fit perfectly. Husband usually wears an 11, so purchased a 12.

I wear a 10 and ordered the 11. The fit was perfect. Great boot for running errands, shoveling snow, walking the dog, taking out the garbage. Very warm. I've been out for hours in them in single digit temperatures with moderate activity and my feet have been toasty. I would not recommend them for hiking because they don't fit as snug as you would want for trekking. I would recommend the Salomon Snowtrip or Tundra for trekking.

Okay boot - soft and warm on the inside but the front does not flex in the front when walking, it provides little arch support and feet start to hurt after 30 minutes. Used mostly for snowblowing the neighborhood and walking out to the car in the AM. More comfortable when not zipped up - will not flex when zipped. Not something to wear throughout the day.

It felt like there was no cushioning in the sole, and after a while my heels were starting to hurt. The worst was the zipper problem: after taking just a few steps, the zippers would start to open, making the boots clunky as well as uncomfortable. I wish I returned them because I actually feel bad about donating this pair to Goodwill as they are so bad.

Disappointed. I read many favorable reviews but my experience was nothing like those. I found this boot to be very uncomfortable. It has no arch support to speak of. Makes you feel completely flat-footed. It throttles you around the ankle - and my ankles are not wide. Returned them.

I bought these boots for easy on and off from house to garage, snowblowing, shoveling, and working in garage. Definitely order a full size larger. They are too low in the back, loose around ankles, the zippers do not stay up and definitely not for -40°. My garage is kept at 48° and after four hours, my feet were cold. They could use insoles to insulate from the concrete. The brushed tricot lining is nice for easy slip on and off. The side insulation is pretty good but not underfoot. They have good snow/ice soles. The zippers caught and dragged until I coated them with candle wax. They are good boots for a lower price, but do not waste this much on them. Look for better quality boots if any are available today.

The left boot is comfortable, feels like a great fit. The right boot, however, is easily 1/2 size too small, possibly more. My toes are in pain, and there are no adjustment options. Do not recommend.
