I take the train to work every day and these boots are perfect for Chicago slush and snow. They're super warm, stylish, comfortable and have good traction. I was a little worried that they'd be too tight in the calf area after reading other reviews because my legs are not petite and I have trouble with boots all the time - but these fit great. I'm able to tuck in my jeans and dress pants with no problem.

I ordered these last year as they were marked 17" in circumstance. They must have been mismarked as was the Alex ll in that they both were too tight. My calves are 14½" and thought surely I could tuck in jeans but forget it! I was most disappointed in Bogs!

I love this boot! I took me long enough! With Zappos awesome shipping I was able to buy multiple boots at one time because I knew I could return them! I was leaving for a year in France, and they have a rainy/bad winter season, for this these boots are AWESOME! They are stylish, and VERY comfy! They keep me warm and sleek, my ankles are small, but my calf muscle is huge, so I knew it would be hard to find a good fit, I have a 17in calf, and with these I can fit my jeans or leggings in them perfectly and not look like my leg is drowning in boot. They conform to your legs but aren't to tight, I can wear them with or without socks as well; the size 9 that I wear was a true fit for this shoe too! All day wear!! Not to heavy, I wore them on the plane so my luggage wouldn't be too heavy, but I had no problem wearing them on the plane!

I am usually an 8 1/2 so I needed the 9. It was roomy, but the actual boot seemed a bit too tall for me. The top was also a bit tight and I could not tuck in my jeans. I have neither of these problems with Merrell, but wanted a rubber boot that is warm. Other rubber boots are not well insulated. I will try the mid calf boots next.

I love these boots! They are so comfortable! They are flexible at the ankles so I can wear them all day if I have to. They are just big enough that I could wear a thick pair of socks when it is really cold out, but I do not know if I will need to beause my feet are staying really toasty in them. I needed warm, waterproof, tall boots for the winter because the temperature in Wisonsin gets cold and the snow drifts get high. These boots are awesome. They have great little details, too. The embossing makes them more feminine. There is a little rubber stub on the back of the heel I can step on with the oppsite foot to take them off easily with no hands!

These boots are comfortable and look great! I've received several compliments about the subtle details. Also very warm... almost hot, but since winter is around the corner I won't complain. Again, a great pair of boots!

I bought a pair of these boots for my daughter to dual use as a mucker/rider. These boots are extremely comfortable and warm. I bought her a size 7, which usually fit fine, however, they fit me, I wear an 8. I ordered another pair size 6 for her and they fill wonderful. Order a size smaller than you normally would. Now I have an extra pair I kept for myself. :) I would prefer more sole support from this boot.

These boots are so warm and very comfortable. You can't feel snow, icy water or the wind when wearing. Very happy with my purchase. I ordered them a half size bigger for heavier socks.

These are nice, really well made boots and very comfortable in the foot with good support. I can tell they would be very warm and hold up well over time. Unfortunately they are too snug in the calf.

from Fort Worth, TX

I ordered these Bogs, plus two Hunter styles (Original Adjustable & Ladies Balmoral). The Bogs almost worked, except for the part where they put a strip of rubber over the stretchy material at the top of the boot. The stretchy material actually goes down about 4 inches from the top of the boot in the back. This would have given enough room to tuck in slacks. As it was, I could barely pull them all the way up (16.5" calves) over bare skin because that rubber strip eliminated the stretch. Why did they put that there? I wish someone would make a rain boot with fullness where it's needed. Most women's calves are fullest about 1/3 - 1/2 way down from the knee, not at the top of the lower leg. Both of the Hunters are going back too. Oh well, it appears I am (still) on an endless quest for rain boots.

(What's this?)

Cornelia

from portland, or

i absolutely adore these boots! i've had one pair for 5 years; theres nothing wrong with them but i just bought a second pair as a back up because i'm paranoid bogs will stop making this perfect rainboot! they are warm and oh so comfy. they slip right on and off so easily. they are spacious enough to fit a thick pair of socks, but not overly large. i wear them all winter long in portland, oregon-- running to the store, riding my bike, hiking in the mud. i can wade through shin deep puddles of icy water and my feet are dry and warm!

I just ADORE these boots! Slip on so easy, so comfy, so warm, so waterproof. Perfect for tromping through shin-deep slush on my way to work. Best rain boot over ever owned.

Nice boot. The cuff at the top of the boot gives it a nice, snug (not tight) fit. This boot also has the texture and shine to make it a little more dressy than your average rain boot. Overall, worth the price.

from PNW

Love these boots! I am a PNW girl who has given these boots some endurance testing. One pair I wore for 3 years, gifted them to a friend, bought a second pair, and both are still great. The first pair is 5 years in, and my friend still wears them and they are solid! I personally like the look of these, as they are more of a riding boot, than a typical rain boot or bog. I have people ask me about them almost every time I wear them. Super happy Zappos has them again! I worried when I saw they were not available last year. I am now tempted to buy a back up pair! Great boots!

I purchased these in the gray, and am very happy with the color. They are slightly darker than the photo shows. I normally wear a 7½, but an 8 in running shoes. I ordered the 8, and it is very roomy wearing a mid-weight sock (but not sloppy). I can easily wear a thick sock and not have my feet feel pinched. I have a Morton's Neuroma on one foot, so, while I could probably fit into the 7, I do not want to take a chance on them being snug in the forefoot. I have thin, athletic legs, and was drawn to these boots because of the criticism from those with larger calves. The top is not tight on my legs, and the boots look really great. I have tried on Hunter and they are just too baggy at the top. If you have thin legs and want a very warm, cushy, rain/snow boot - this is to boot for you. Very flattering. Also, most boots that I have tried do not have the thick liner in them that these do. I have notoriously cold feet, but these are keeping my feet very warm. I have worn Sorel boots for years and love them, but I have to say that these are nicer to walk around in - and look better if you are not just playing in the snow. Thank you, Bogs, so such a nice, tall, women's boot! Thank you, Zappos, for great service and quick delivery!

I love this boot. It not only looks amazing but it is snug and warm. I live on a farm and wanted a good working boot. This is a good one. It also goes to town with skinny jeans on a rainy day. I normally wear an 8 - 8 1/2 and had to reorder a nine. I think the thick comfortable lining took up the extra size.

These are much pricier than I'd like but they offer multiple benefits (fashionable, will work for rain or snow and if the other reviewers are being straight with us, they'll keep my tootsies warm, too. The fit around my upper calf is snug in a way that makes it easier to walk because they aren't flopping all around like lightweight rain boots do. This is a solid, stiff boot but the interior is warm. With socks it's perfectly cacoon-like. I am a bit nervous about potential blisters because when I walk, I can feel them hit my ankles in different places but I'm going to take my chances and see what happens. I wear a 9.5 but ordered a 10 so I can wear my orthotic and/or thick socks if I want. With thick socks, they fit like a glove. Hoping they hold up and are my winter stalwarts.

I normally like a slim-fitting boot (I have thin calves - my go to boots are a tall pair of Frye Martina Engineer boots - it has a 13" circumference) in flats, sandals and heels I'm a perfect 5.5 so when I wear a boot in the rain/winter I usually size up to a 6 to account for socks. With all the reviews saying how it is a snug fit I ordered up to my usual 6. The calf is snug, but not tight. But the foot has a lot of room...even with thick socks.

These vegan rubber boots are amazing. I bought them for snowy/muddy winter morning walks in Montana with my dogs. They are completely waterproof. My feet never get wet. I was worried that they may not be warm enough, but they are toasty even in very cold weather. I highly recommend them.

Excellent boot for all weather conditions. I've worn these in rain, sleet, slush, snow, you name it. They keep my feet warm and dry but never hot. I have bigger calves and they fit over them as long as I wear the boot with leggings. They are a bit difficult to take off. They look really cute with all kinds of outfits or if you just want to get muddy in your yard while working. Overall I love my bogs!

I love these boots! They proved themselves during months of freezing temps and weeks of sub-zero (F) temps. They are warm and dry, and allow me to trudge through the mounds of snow piled up everywhere. The elastic fabric around the top also keeps the wind out. Bring inside shoes along because these are too warm indoors (or in temps too much above freezing). Went a half size up since they don't make half sizes, which allows me to wear extra thick socks (but they're fine if I don't). They're tall enough to hit just under my knees. They are roomy enough that I can tuck my pants legs inside, yet slim enough that they can hide under pants if I prefer. I love the embossed design, and how easy they are to clean. They are a bit bulky and clunky, the way solid winter boots always are. So well insulated, it takes an adjustment driving since it's harder to feel the pedals.

These boots rock! I love that they are tall and slim in the ankle - my foot doesn't flop in them at all. I have a small foot and most winter boots are sloppy when you walk in them and these do not. Even bought my mother a pair!

I absolutely love these! These are the best boots that I have ever bought. They are completely waterproof, warm, and very comfortable (I am size 10, 5'9" with with large calves - and they fit perfectly. I bought these after returning a pair of Hunters that were too narrow on my calves). They are Perfect for long walks out in the snow with my dogs. They will also be great in the spring.
