These a great shoes--totally comfortable and warm! They do have some suede-ish trim, so I'm not sure how that part is waterproof, but the rest of the shoe (minus the faux fur) appears to be quite weather-resistant! Order a size up for these. One full size up fits me just fine. One of the shoes has a bit of an issue zipping and unzipping, but other than that and you can wear them all day long without problems. They're also rather stylish, considering how utilitarian they are!

I really wanted to like these boots. They are warm, keep me dry and look good. The only problem and the reason I'm returning them is that the suede area around the zipper is already broken, and I don't want any moisture to get through them. I'm giving them two stars overall, because of quality control on the zipper area.

Okay, they're not exactly stylish, but I needed a pair of boots for when it's too wet for my UGGs and these are perfect dog-walking boots in mucky weather. They're roomy enough for a wool sock underneath and warmer than just rubber boots. I hesitated because of one bad review, but I've had no problems with mine at all.

I love these boots. They are very warm. I would definitely recommend ordering a size up. My husband bought me a 9 from Zappos, but they are too snug, so I had to buy a 10 at another retailer (they're sold out at Zappos). The 10's fit much better.

I was excited when these boots came, but was immediately disappointed as they were too small. Definitely get at least half a size up. I wish I had read the reviews before ordering - now my size is not available! Oh well, better luck next time!

When they first came, I thought the heavy waterproof upper was a little uncomfortable, but I've worn them off and on for a month and they're just fine. The stiffness of the upper doesn't really rub my feet, and they're really good for puddle-wading with my puppy. They have a furry inside and I often wear them without socks.

These were my dream boot. Easy on and off. Zip close. Not too heavy. Soft in the inside. I absolutely love them but unfortunately they are not true to size by at least half a size too small and thinner. No wiggle room. May try a 10. I normally wear a 9 in shoes and athletic shoes. On occasion I may fit into a 8½ in Nikes. So hope that helps for sizing.

I loved this boot, but it is way too small! I am a 9 in everything but I could barely even get my foot into this 9! Also, the fur lining is seamed right at the back of the heel which caused it to rub on my heel - very uncomfortable! I am trying a different Khombu and hope I don't have the same issue - sad, because I love the boot (very soft inside!).

This boot is terrible! At first I thought it felt so nice and warm, but the first time I wore them I got terrible blisters! They tore my feet up!

I love these boots! I live in NYC (not quite waist high snow drift territory but cold and wet and messy in the winters) and these boots keep my feet warm, dry and comfortable. The quality of the boot is excellent and the zipper up the front makes them very easy to get in and out of. The first day I wore them I had to break them in and I did get a blister on the back of my heel, but since that first day nothing but comfort. I would definitely recommend these boots. I am an 8 and found they ran true to size and after a few wears molded to my feet quite well. Great purchase.

I wanted to like these but will be returning them. First of all, I usually wear between a 9 and 10 shoe. I ordered an 11 in these and they still felt tight once I had thick socks and my pants tucked in. So definitely order up. The other thing is that they have this weird plasticky canvas under the zipper seam. I guess this is to keep water out, but it felt very cheap and combined with the tightness I was afraid that it would rip pretty quickly from constant zipping and unzipping. So for the price I am going to keep looking.

I wish I could keep these boots, but I could not get my foot into them. The calf/shaft does not have enough give, even with the zipper all the way down.
