Great shoes that lived up to my expectations! I received a pair with a faulty lace but Zappos shipped me a new pair the next day!

These are great. More comfortable than I expected them to be. It hasn't snowed yet in NYC so I have yet to comment about how they'll fare then.

My husband ordered these after some snowy days where he didn't have good shoes to walk 1.5 miles to work. He has worn these every day since he got them! He says they are very comfortable after breaking them in the first day. Good in snow and rain. He gives them a thumbs up!

Just got these and I love the look and feel. I walk about a mile to my office from the train station in Chicago and these are the perfect cold weather/snow boot. Comfortable, warm, waterproof. And they look great.

They're okay. I'm disappointed with how fragile the leather is on the toe. I've had them for a month, wear them about 1 day a week around town, and there are already multiple large tears in the leather. It doesn't scuff like quality leather would, the surface actually rips, exposing the unfinished leather. To be honest, they're mediocre Danner ripoffs but for half the price they'll sell a lot of them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Danner

Great looking boot. Its obvious that it was made with quality. Breaks in quickly. I have been walking to work a couple of miles a day in the snow with these puppies no problem: warm and waterproof.

Great boot. For the price you can't beat the styling and the features. Kept my feet warm and dry for a weekend camping.

These boots are very well made and good looking. They are really water-proof. The leather looks like as it is nubuck, though not sure it is correct word. The boots are quite comfortable though I would prefer the width to be a bit narrower. There are not as warm as I expected, after an hour outdoors at 23 F (or -5 C) I felt my legs getting cold but to be honest I am pretty cold-blooded men. I usually wear 9,5 size, ordered these boots in 10,5 and I think I should take 11 size.

A great take on the classic Danner style boot. The slightly orange laces look a lot better than other Danner style boots out there. Not only is it better looking than most out there, it also performs really well. It's incredibly comfortable and warm. They break in easily, almost instantly and are well made. I'm going to order them in black too. Highly recommended.

I love these shoes so much. They are stylish and comfortable. Only one thing I thought, it's face it is longer then when I'm wearing it. I mean in the picture looks longer but once you wear it you will notice it is not that long. Other than this, it is great shoe. True color too.

Great looking pair of boots! I was surprised how light they actually are. Felt a bit larger than usual, but that's OK since it just leaves more room for a heavier pair of socks. Like always, 5 star service from Zappos!

I purchased these boots from Zappos for my son, who is a senior in high school, after not finding what we were looking for in stores. He is the BOMB with these boots on and hears "Hey, where did you get those kicks?" on a daily basis. They are head turners. Amazing style, comfortable, and well-made. We couldn't be happier with this purchase. My only small "issue" with this order was that Zappos has spoiled us in the past with free overnight shipping and that wasn't the case this time around. We needed the boots for senior pictures and were sweating it out when they didn't arrive the next day as with previous orders.

Love these boots so far, they broke in after a few hours. Love the old school styling and I've been getting compliments from everyone including from the least expected people. I can't speak for the durability as I've only worn them 3 days but I can speak for Zappos service...the best, period.
