from Saint Paul, Minnesota

Great all-around winter boots. Surprised how lightweight they are. Purchased for my 14YO son. Still relatively new, but they're working well so far as his go-to footwear for getting around town in this year's alternately frigid/slushy winter. The style is a mix between a pack boot and a duck boot. Not too clunky for walking. The size was dead on. Can't really comment about arch support, but his feet are fairly wide and the regular width worked fine.

I bought these because I needed warmer snow boots. These boots are warm and sturdy and are offered a better price than some similar boots. I took them out the past two weekends when we've had big snow storms and they did great. Even tried snowshoeing with them. My feet never got cold. Very comfortable and plenty of support. I am a 10-10 1/2 but opted to go up an 11 so I could wear two layers of thick wool socks. They fit just about right. Lacing the boots more tightly helped. I do wish they would offer these boots in half sizes because a 10 1/2 would probably be a bit better and give me the option of slightly thinner socks. A size 10 with boot socks would have been a bit too snug.

The boots are warm and comfortable. However after 3 years, the right boot's rubber side split apart.

Got these just in time, before the snow started. They fit well according to size and are warm and dry. The only drawback is the length of the laces and difficulty getting the laces in the top hooks.

Actual size is much smaller, size 14 more like a 13 or smaller. Also ordered a size 14 at the same time, another manufacturer's shoe, fits fine.

Ordered these a few days before a major snow storm hit PA. Best snow boots I've ever owned. My toes usually get cold after prolonged exposure due to shoveling and clearing snow. My feet stayed toasty warm and completely dry in these boots through 6 hours of wear.

My son wears these hiking in his outdoor adventure group in some cold, wet snowy conditions in Connecticut as well as working outdoors in all kinds of weather. He has no complaints, says they keep him warm and dry and are comfortable.

Bought these right before Snowzilla rolled in. So glad I did. Initially they felt a little snug, but loosened up quickly after only a few wearings. They were very comfortable and warm! I usually end up with frozen feet but these boots did a great job of holding in the heat while I shoveled. Would definitely recommend them!

Just moved back to Ohio from 12 years in South Carolina and am replacing my old winter wardrobe. These boots are a great value for the price. I wear size 12 but ordered size 13 to leave room for thick socks. But they feel great with regular white cotton socks or thick wool socks. Wore them around the house for quite a while and they were very comfortable. Looking forward to getting out in the snow. I highly recommend these boots!

Bought these in a 12 for my husband. He is a 12/12.5 and they fit perfectly. He doesn't wear very thick socks, so consider that when sizing. They are very warm and seem to keep the water and moisture out. He's very happy with them.

I got these to ride a fat tire bicycle during a Minnesota Winter. I wear 9½ men's, ordered a 10, sent it back and got the 11. I have tried them now riding at 30°F, 20°F and 0°F. At 30°F I decided that I still needed to order heavy duty winter socks. I wore those when riding at 20°F, it was ok, but I knew that it would not be sufficient for much less. Today I rode with the temperatures at 2°F when I started, at 0°F when I ended with a -19°F wind chill. I wore two pairs of Carhart arctic weight socks. I rode for an hour and 12 minutes. I quit because my feet were cold. So they do not make it to -40°F as advertised, but for the price if you are not going to stay out longer than an hour, and put on extra socks, they will do. I will order likely order more expensive colder rated boots.

I ordered this Kamik Fargo boot and the Sorel Cold Mountain boot, both 1/2 size larger than I usually wear, because they are very similar in style and were both rated pretty high. When I put this boot on it felt just a little bit narrow on my foot,though I do have slightly wider feet. The weirdest thing about this boot is that the sole felt very rigid, no flexibility, and you feel like you are clomping around on blocks in these boots. They seemed pretty comfortable and like they would keep your feet warm. They had crazy long laces though, like who needs that long of laces to tie a knot? The Sorel boot had a much bigger toe box and was much more comfortable to wear and most importantly, was way more flexible in the sole. Also, I didn't feel like my heel was coming out with every step like the Kamik Fargo boot did. So when compared side by side, this Kamik boot was not as comfortable as the Sorel Cold Mountain boot and I will definitely be sending this boot back. Perhaps this boot would be a good "work" boot but not for my needs of a good snow boot for shoveling, hiking, sledding, walking in cold snowy conditions.

These were purchased for my stepson; he is going on a trip and needed something to keep him nice and warm but be comfortable for lots of walking and he said these are perfect. He wore them for an entire day after opening them and said they are the most comfortable shoes he's ever worn and they are super warm.

These are super warm and pretty comfortable boots, I bought them for a winter trip to Colorado. They fit to size so it is unfortunate that there are no half sizes. I normally wear a 9½ shoe, I ordered a 9 and a 10 to be safe (thanks to Zappos' excellent return policy!) and went with the 10 so I can fit thick socks or double up. More importantly, I wanted to complete a review for Zappos and tell everyone how incredibly awesome the company is. I had to return both shoes, one for size and one because it was defective. I had the new pair the very next day! I buy most of my shoes from Zappos because of the customer service.

I bought these boots for my husband for Christmas. He hasn't worn them yet, but did try them on. He wears a size 10, if you buy them, size up one size. 11's fit him fine. He says they felt good when he tried them on. The exchange system was very easy, and I am not good with computers. Zappos representatives were cheerful, courteous, and very helpful! I will definitely return to zappos.com in the future! Merry Christmas!

Overall, the Kamik Fargo boots fit well and are well made. The sizing feedback had me order a size 10 since I normally wear a 9.5. Can't wait for some bad weather.

I will echo what others said about this boot. My heel lifted up off the floor of the boot every time my foot bent to take a step. I suppose it might have been a different story if I had a whole size smaller, but the toe felt like it fit pretty well, so I would expect then I'd just have had other problems with them being too tight. I really wanted to like these boots, but the molded part just wasn't shaped correctly for my foot.

I purchases theses boots early before the cold weather hit here. When they arrived I was just going to put them on just to see how they felt. Needless to say I literary didn't take them back off they felt so good. Now the weather has turned cold here a whole 2 degrees, they are wonderful they keep my feet very warm and are very comfortable. :)

I bought these for traveling in the northern US throughout the winter, I needed something that would look okay with a suit and these did the job - obviously they're still snowboots, but they are sleek enough where I could get away with it. Unfortunately I found after wearing them in the snow for a couple days that the actual sole of the boot is pretty thin and they didn't do well keeping my feet warm in the snow - it was okay when there wasn't snow on the ground, but walking in and through snow my feet got very cold. They are very waterproof - I have traipsed through puddles and slush 4 inches deep and my feet have stayed dry - the only complaint I have is the insulation.

I've only had these for a day, but I've already been through fresh snow and very low temperatures with them. My verdict? They are awesome! I ordered the black (which looks to be out of stock at the time of my review) and they're nice and monotone. I usually wear a 9.5 in men's (11 in women's) but because they don't make half sizes, and especially because I wanted room for thick socks, I got size 10. They fit perfectly and there's no tightness even with liner socks inside of thick wool socks. And I don't have narrow feet. I walked around my apartment when I got them to ensure they fit well with both thin and thick socks, and just ended up leaving them on for the following half hour or so before I left home. When I was outside later in 8 degrees and snow I was very glad I chose them. My feet were nice and cozy and the traction gave me a secure grip on even hard compacted snow. They're making me look forward to the rest of this Wisconsin winter! Also, Zappos never ceases to amaze me. I ordered these boots early one morning and got them the next day - just in time for more snow!

These boots are great. I've used them in heavy rain but not in snow but I'm sure I'll have the same results. The inside keeps your feet warm.

These are a boot I purchased for work. My old boots didn't have a full heel on it, so the ball of my foot would always get a huge blister. The full heel helped tremendously.

I bought these boots for my dad and he loves them. They are surprisingly light weight and held up well in the snow and rain. If you are going to buy, make sure you order a half size larger because they run a little small.

These have replaced a pair of Sorel Yoot Pak boots outgrown by my 13 year old. We live in Ohio and get our share of cold and snow, so winter boots are a necessity. The Sorels have been noticeably declining in quality for the last several years so we went with Kamiks this time. Seems like a good choice. I recommend buying a half or whole size bigger than your street shoes, which is what we did and they fit perfectly. Just the right amount of space to accommodate warm socks and a little room to grow. Time will tell if they hold up, but they seem reasonably well made and odds are good that they will be outgrown before they are outworn. My son has already worn them camping in 20 degree weather that included snow and sleet. He reported that they were warm and comfortable, and he likes the way they look, so that's a winner in our book. Judging from the insulation, I doubt they would handle -40 temps as advertised but they should be fine for Ohio winters.
