These boots were sort of like the last guy I met online - they looked better in the picture. Also they seemed to run a little narrow. On the plus side they did seem well insulated. There are better options out there.

A great order. Everyone said to go a half size up, so I did, and it was really good advice. They definitely run small. You could even get a full size up if you plan on wearing them with thick socks. The boot is really comfortable and warm, and it shipped really quickly!

Definitely order at least half a size up, and probably a full size. These boots were very warm, I wore them on a trip to the arctic (literally) and my feet were always warm, and pretty comfortable!

These boots are even cuter in person. They feel great and very true to size. Unfortunately I can't attest to warmth because I haven't been able to test them in the snow. As I bought them to be 'prepared' for winter, and NYC has had one of the warmest winters in history... with no snowfall. :(

Fit was okay. A little snugger than I thought it would be and already ordered a half size up. Another half size would have been too big I think. My biggest problem with these is that they feel like ski boots. There was no give. With no flex in the ankle, they were uncomfortable just walking around my living room. I felt a little like Herman Munster. They are going back and it's back to the search for snow boots.

First, kudos to Zappos for superb service all around. Lightning fast, free shipping, and great selection. I live in a cold and (relatively) snowy part of NY state, and have an old dog who needs to be walked often and sometimes at a moment's notice. My list of boot requirements was long; they had to be: mid calf, warm, waterproof, comfortable (including flexible sides), have good traction, light (which I realized only after I'd tried on several heavy pairs), easy to get on and off, and, in the ideal, good looking. I tried at stores and via Zappos many different brands and styles, and this boot was the clear winner. They only fall short of the good looking criterion, and that is partly because of the big rubber cover over the top front of the boot -- a trade off because that is one thing that guarantees waterproofness. One other caveat: Columbia boots vary a lot in size from style to style, very frustrating for online ordering. You think you wear, like I do a 6.5 because that is your usual shoe size and you have a pair of Columbia boots in that size, but in this boot I ended up with a 7.5 (though a 7 would have been okay too). Sorels, also an otherwise excellent choice, are even worse on this front, so I would never order them online: in those boots from 5.5 to 7.5 (all in women's -- I checked because I thought that 5.5 must have been men's) were literally the same fit and size.

After a few tries I finally found the perfect snowboard! I am usually a 9 or 9-1/2 and the 10 in this boot fit fine. Lightweight yet warm. They came yesterday just in time to wear for the blizzard that hit NYC. I was out all morning shoveling and they were great!

This is a fantastic shoe. Lightweight, warm, comfortable... the only down side is that it felt a little too tight after wearing it 6 hours. I tried adjusting the laces, it helped, but maybe they just need a little breaking in. I have super high arches and wide feet so maybe its just me. I highly recommend this boot regardless.

These boots are absolutely gorgeous! I've gotten lots of comments on them. But I'm the most pleased with how warm they keep my feet! It is so hard to keep them warm, but these worked great!

Love these boots. I have looked for several years for some warm snow boots and could never find a pair that actually kept my feet warm until now. They are really warm. They fit true to size too. Bonus...they are comfortable too!

I love these boots! I bought them for myself this winter after moving to "the city". My daily commute changed to include a 15 minute walk to the T (our metro) or a wait for a (less than reliable) bus. This entire week our windchill temperatures in Boston have been below zero. My hands, ears, and nose may never defrost again. My feet have stayed toasty warm! I bought my normal shoe size and they fit perfectly. Granted, I wear them without socks (a personal preference). Even sock-less my feet haven't felt cold (they also don't sweat/boil so I can easily wear these boots all day while running errands). I've shoveled snow, trekked over icy sidewalks, and stepped in slushy water puddles all without a care in the world. I find these boots easy to take on and off. They admittedly make me look like I'm going on an Antarctic exploration but I would choose warm and dry feet over "style" any day. I haven't owned these boots long but I've used them daily for more than a week and they feel well made and sturdy. I would highly recommend them - 5 stars!

Love these boots. I got them 1/2 a size up and they fit perfectly. So snuggly and warm and the best part is that they are light as a feather. Doesn't feel like I am trudging around in ski boots. They look really cute over a pair of skinny jeans or leggings.

I have tried on a lot of snow boots, and these are my favorite: light, easy to lace up, easy to walk in, don't rub me anywhere. They run small. I usually wear a size 9. I could hardly squeeze my feet into a 9. I ordered the 9½ and they fit perfectly.

Love these boots. They are super light, comfortable and seem warm. I usually wear a 6.5 in boots, but I am returning them for a 7 because they are tight with medium weight socks. They seem like great value.

I love these boots! The first pair I bought I had to return and exchange because these boots are super snug and I had to order the second pair a half size larger. Now they are perfect. They keep my feet so super warm and dry. They look great with everything. So versatile!

This is by far the best snow shoe I have ever owned! My feet stay nice and toasty and I don't have to worry about slipping on the ice with these! I took the advice and ordered a half size smaller and it fits perfectly!

The shoes do run small, so I recommend going half a size up. They keep your feet incredibly warm, and I was able to walk all day without my ankles feeling weighed down. Great buy.

These are great, warm winter boots. They have nice traction, and feel so soft inside! However, they run small. I wear a 9½N, and the regular 9½B (as they do not come in narrow) were too short for my feet. So I upped to a size 10, and they fit great. They are super comfortable!

I bought these boots for my first winter in Minnesota - it hasn't snowed yet so I haven't been able to test them out. I tried them on and walked around a little bit - they are extremely warm and comfortable. There is a tiny bit of heel slippage - but I bought these boots a half size larger than usual to account for some anticipated cold feet and thicker socks. I can't wait for the snow so I can see how they feel, but I love them so far!

Exactly what I expected from this boot and nice and warm, comfortable, don't know about durability yet but looks like it'll survive a long time. :) I did go for 1/2 size larger but it wasn't larger than I expected and still don't think I can wear it with a thick sock but since they seem warm enough I don't think I'll need to.

I have a long, thin foot (size 11 narrow). My heel flops around in most medium width size 11 shoes, but the selection is pretty small when you search for an 11 narrow. So I ordered 4 lace up snow boots in 11 medium width and hoped one would work well enough with some thick socks. Two Kamiks (Taos and Canuck) and two Columbias (Ice Maiden and this one) and the Sierra Summette was the best. I was really happy the first day in the snow...feet stayed warm, dry, and comfy! I did lace 'em pretty tight and there was still a very slight amount of heel movement, but it was very small and the rest of my foot felt snug. The ball of my foot is only slightly narrower-than-average but my heel is very narrow. The Comumbia Ice Maiden was a pretty good fit as well, so I would recommend either Columbia if you have a narrow foot.

Love these boots. Normally wear a size 9, I got a 9.5 but I really could have gotten a 10. I have very narrow feet so these boots fit great but I even feel the midfoot is extremely tight for a boot. If you have wide feet I would look elsewhere these are very narrow.
