I selected this boot because of its mid-calf height -- I can still tuck in my pants but I can also roll then up on top if I want. The fleecy insides are cozy and warm, but are not covered by the faux sheerling around the top. They are very comfortable, have aggressive soles, and would be good in snow 6" or 8" deep. I plan to replace the fabric laces with waterproof leather laces. I usually wear size 7.5 but bought size 8 so I could wear thick socks.

These shoes are great! They are cute, comfortable & lightweight. My only complaint is that they aren't the warmest boot so just make sure if you are going to be outside for a while, wear 2 pairs of socks!

These boots are incredibly comfortable and warm. I love that they are already waterproof, so I don't need to treat them. I don't think I will wear them shoveling because they aren't snug to the leg, but they are perfect for daily use and apres skiing.

I ordered a few different styles of boots to try and these almost were the ones. The look is different and fun, true to the picture. They are easy to slip on, seem warm, like the fur detailing. I ordered half a size up (9 instead of 8½) and felt that I would have plenty of room to wear thick socks. (If you do not plan to wear thick socks, I think they fit true to size.) They seemed easy enough to walk in but I was just trying them on in the house. The reason I did not keep them is the wideness of the calf. I guess that I have pretty thin calves because the top of the boot wasn't hugging my leg at all. I retied them but there is not much room for making them tighter (the boot just kind of "wrinkles" when you pull tighter) so they still gaped at the top. This, combined with the shorter height in the first place, was a make or break for me. Still five stars for great boots.

Great boots! Good fit, no slip, easy to get on and off without having to untie or loosen everything. Color I ordered is correct and they're nice and warm as well. Would definitely recommend!

These boots were everything that I expected. They are well made, extremely comfortable and wicked cute. I purchased them for a ski trip but I can easily wear them casually for errands or whatever your day has planned for you. I would recommend these boots wholeheartedly.

These were very comfortable & easy to slip on. Also nice to have the ties that can tighten it a little even though it's still a slipon. I didn't think they looked bad, but the feedback I got was that they looked too shiny.

These are beautiful boots and seem to have all the features needed for winter comfort. Sized perfectly for a heavy winter sock. But I decided that I didn't want this style, I have something similar from Pajar and instead bought Teva De La Vina Low, which allows me to avoid tucking the pants into the tops.

So cute and comfortable! I wish it was still cold here! These seem to run half a size snug and slightly narrow. I almost always wear size 7 but needed a 7.5 in these.

Fabulous boot and very stylish. They keep my feet warm and comfortable. I wear a size 8, usually go up in a boot or sneaker but the 8 was perfect in this boot. What a great find! Great for outdoor and indoor.

Perfect boot for me. I have a high instep so cannot put on pull on or zip style boots. These have just enough give to allow me to slip my feet in. They stay comfortable and warm through my daily 4 mile dog walk and are tall enough to keep the snow out. Very glad I bought them. I usually wear a 10 in Merrell hiking boots but 9 in other shoes - have these in a 9-1/2 and they are great.

This was my first time ordering from zappos and I am very satisfied and glad I did. I finaly found boots I was looking for. Nice looking,leather upper,anti skid soles,and first of all no fur lining inside. My feet tend to sweat in fur lining shoes and feet got cold faster. Besides fur lining make shoes tighter and that way colder,too and that way people have to buy half or full size bigger boots and that just does not make sense any more. I am a size 7 and I should be wearing my true size in order they looked good on feet and I felt comfortable. I would not go half size bigger just to be able to put on extra socks with those boots,they already have room for that, too. No need to exchange and further hassle. Perfect for every day wear,activities,too. I just have to try them with a big snow and prove its waterproof,but I believe they will pass the test.

Brands I'd also recommend: clarks

These boots fit like a glove. They are stylish, cozy, and a perfect fit for my foot. I had to return another pair of Merrell boots as the arch hit my foot wrong but these are as comfy as a house slipper.

I was not expecting the ties on these boots to be real ones but it turns out to be a bonus because the shaft is generous so you can tuck heavier weight pants into them if you want with no problem. As a 7½M, these boots seem to fit accurately. They are easy to slip on/off, perfect for twice daily dog walks in the ice/snow and for getting around town. The sole is thick so I expect with my ski socks and the Primloft lining in the boot itself to be pretty warm. Yay! The boots are pretty high volume in the toe and heel but with a heavier insert/orthotic and winter socks, they seem just fine for long walks outside as they have been around the house the past day or so. The pair I have now has some minor cosmetic construction flaws so Zappos will be sending a new pair with their usual great service.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarke Artisan, Wave, and Un-lines, Born (if you don't need orthotics), Brooks, Merrell (also if you don't need orthotics), some Ecco styles

These are cute and warm, but they run a little small. They have weak arch support. I recommend ordering up half a size. Looser boots tend to be warmer because they trap the heat better.

I bought for my wife for Christmas. Based on reviews and her size 7.5 to 8, I purchased an 8. Too small (short). They are super cute, she loves them, but they are going back and the next size was a 10. Bummer! That seems to be every year at this time. Never enough inventory at the right sizes. Shipping was real fast. No cost for shipping is great also. As a company I think Zappos is great but not the first time I had to return due to size and then they did not have the right size.

In terms of size, as an another review mentioned, this boot does come with enough space for a thick pair of socks, especially in the toe box. I would caution against trying to wear an insole *and* thick socks as there may not be enough volume everywhere else to accommodate. I'm going to use an insole because the footbed isn't very cushion-y. This boot seems to be built to last, all the materials appear to be high quality. I have yet to try them in snow so time will tell. Very cute design, the sole is comfortable and flexible. Only thing that was off for me was the color. While the color of the boot seems like a warm "cognac", in actuality, they're actually more of a darker, chocolate color.

Living and playing in Northern Illinois and Wisconsin, I was searching for warmth, waterproof and style, and I am satisfied that I have found what I sought. The boot is comfortable; it is a bit loose in the heel as mentioned by another customer, but this generally decreased with a thicker, rougher sock. I sized up 1/2 size, typical of my running shoe size. The sole has a good grip to reduce slipping on ice. As with most Merrell products, it is well made. I did not rate it as 5 star because the lacing system tends to be awkward.

These are fun enough for a snow boot, a little tight in the toe for me, but I have a wide foot. Not in love with these, and there hasn't been snow, so can't attest to their ability to keep my feet warm and dry. Likeable enough.

What I really like about these is how warm they are! They are toasty at all times, but not sweaty. I think they breathe well. I went with these instead of the Keen Hoodoos because the barrier to snow that is inside the lacing goes up near the top of the shoe on these ones. It is thin, though, so these are probably more decorative than useful if you are going to go tromping through foot deep snow. They are fine for mostly-clear city streets, though. The arch support is pretty good (though it feels like it is in the wrong place on a size 8½). If you are fussy about construction, there is a little sloppy glue on the exterior. But they feel sturdy. And I absolutely love how much grip the soles have. There are cleats everywhere.
