Comfortable, warm and waterproof. I love these boots! They look great and feel even better. The gray is beautiful. I have a very high instep, so it was not easy getting my foot in the boot (with socks) the first couple of times, but now, they are perfect. Slip right on, with or without socks. Finally, a pair of waterproof boots that are light and beautiful.

I live in Merrell barefoot shoes, and a barefoot winter boot would be a dream come true because my feet freeze in really cold weather. Sadly these don't work at all. I feared this would happen. There are no laces or buckles, so the shoes are not secure. My heels slide up and down with every step. I can't walk like that. Same boots, but with laces? A thought?

These are fantastic boots. So comfortable and light weight, so they don't take up a bunch of space when packing for a weekend in the snow. The soles are nice too.

Last summer,I fell in love with the comfortable, lightweight Merrell Barefoot Pace and wore them all the time receiving many compliments on the style. I was overjoyed when I received a catalog showing the Barefoot Frost Glove and ordered them because it really was time to have a warmer barefoot for the winter. I have not been disappointed. They are as comfortable and lightweight as the Pace. There is plenty of room to spread out the toes yet my heel does not slip. I have narrow heels. I have worn the boots both with and without socks. My feet stay dry and warm when walking the dog in rain, slush and snow. They are great when traveling as they are lightweight, packable and versatile. Two cute ways to wear either folded down or up. Count me as a huge fan of the Merrell Barefoot line.

I am a huge fan of the Merrell Barefoot line for athletic shoes, so when I saw that they had a pair of real winter boots - I was excited. I have definitely not been disappointed. These boots fit great out of the box. The biggest pleasant surprise is that my feet stay warm in these boots and that is unusual for my feet to be warm in boots during the winter. Since there is no zipper they are a little challenging to put on. That is a slight inconvenience for the warmth and great barefoot feel of this boot.

I ordered and received these boots when the weather here in northern MN was below 0. They are fantastic! They keep my feet really warm. I did buy them a half size bigger after reading other reviews. I think I could have worn my normal size, but they do tend to be narrow so the half size does make it easier to get them on and off.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrill's are the warmest boot I've ever tried.

I nearly kept these but went with a plush North Face boot instead. These are comfy and the fold down feature is cute! They have that lower profile so if you like that you would be happy with these.

This is the first pair of winter boots I've kept in my adult life. Winter boots are usually too heavy, too ugly, not cool at all. These boots are lightweight but warm, they keep my feet dry and they look cool. They fit great, are very comfortable right out of the box and clean up easily. They are great.

These are easy pull-on boots. They are great for wearing with leggings, tights or skinnys. The color adds a nice touch and gives them a sporty edge.

Love, love, love these boots! I have been wearing them for three weeks and I think that they are a great introduction to "minimal" shoes. I don't know if true "barefooters" would call these barefoot, since they do have moderate arch support (which I like for right now, as I'm transitioning to more barefoot-type footwear). These boots are reasonably warm (more for city warmth than a true outdoor boot, but I don't think they are marketed for real outdoor adventuring to begin with). They are cute (the top rolls down, they have a purple stripe on the back) and SO COMFORTABLE once you get used to the flat heel. They feel like slippers! My chunky North Face boots (which are way warmer for below zero temps but very bulky) feel like giant shoe boxes compared to these! I am planning on trying more Merrell barefoot/minimal shoes in the spring based on these. Love them!

Really comfortable boots, so lightweight and wonderful for our Chicago winters. I would add a cautionary note, however. My shoemaker told me that, if I wear these in temperatures below 10 degrees, the rubbery part would crack. Too bad because they are SO warm although they have not really been put to the test because temperatures have been mild so far. He also said that the waterproofing would last only one year, and that thereafter they would need a yearly silicone treatment.

I have a narrow foot and these fit me PERFECTLY. The boot does not ride up and down on my heel. They were comfortable from the first second I put them on. The flatness of the sole is something I have not found in another boot. I'm 6'2" and don't need a lot of extra height! The flatter sole also makes my ankle feel secure, and not like it wants to roll. The arch support is just perfect for me. The boots are a snug fit to get your foot in. I suspect if you have a really high arch, you will have trouble getting them on. They are SUPER WARM. I have not had them in the snow yet, but I expect they will be awesome. Truly, I feel like I have slippers on!

Great little light-weight boots that keep my feet super warm. I brought these boots with me to Paris over Thanksgiving and walked all over in them -- they were comfortable and warm -- and they hardly took up any room in my suitcase. I like to wear them with the tops turned down, but I'm sure they would be fine "full-up."

I love these boots. My sister-in-law and I were talking about the barefoot shoe while we were walking last summer. We commented that a boot would be really nice. Yeah! You came through. I am hoping that you come up with a boot for men. My husband would love to have a pair. He wears his barefoot shoes all the time. Thanks.

I bought these boots for a trip to Sweden because it was forecast to be cold and wet and I was going to do a lot of walking. They were fantastic. They kept my feet warm and dry and they were amazingly comfortable for walking. Not disappointed at all.

These are beautiful, lightweight boots that run VERY large. I'll only be able to order one size smaller because I've hit bottom (size 5), but if you can, you might order a whole size smaller. I have many other pairs of Merrell's in the past in many different styles and have never seen any of them run this big.

Love these shoes! They're extremely comfortable and cute. The sole is really good quality and they're waterproof. I have very narrow feet so the width made my ankle a little unstable. I bought foamed soles though and it made it fit better. I can't wait to wear them.

Extremely lightweight, waterproof and comfortable. The only problem I see is that they are very slippery on ice.

I was quite torn about keeping these boots. I really love how light they are. But I'm worried they won't be super warm, which is what I'm looking for. By nature of being a barefoot shoe, the support isn't the strongest either. Either way, I think they would be good for everyday winter wear, but not for super cold days perhaps.

I bought these boots to keep my bare feet warm in the winter. I bought half a size larger so that I could wear socks. They are comfortable, warm and waterproof. However, they do not quite have the barefoot feel that my barefoot shoes have. The soles are too thick, and they are a tad narrow, but they are a good compromise. I bought a pair for a friend, and she loves them.

I love how lightweight these boots are! I have not really given them a real run for the money, but in two short outings they have been pretty comfortable (and this is coming from someone who is fairly fussy about the comfort of her shoes) and have kept my feet warm. I did put a thin wool insole inside to sort of warm them up even more and provide a little more comfort, but I think they would be good without those as well. So long as they prove to be completely waterproof I expect to be very happy with these boots.

Live in Portland, these handle the rain really well and the Vibram soles keep a decent grip on wet surfaces. There is not a lot of arch support, but certainly room around the middle to accept insoles without being too tight. It's decently insulated, not super warm like a shearling lined boot, but provides a sufficient wind-break. Love the easy on and off.
