I own, & have loved my, Kamik rain boots so much; & after buying + enjoying these Kamik Boston Winter boots, I am an even bigger fan of Kamik footwear! These boots are so cute & comfy; but more importantly, they keep your feet dry & so nice 'n warm! You will love these wonderful boots & at the price, they are quite the awesome deal! I bought mine in Taupe/ Brown & they are such a pretty color that work great with jeans, khakis, corduroys, snow pants, etc. These will become your favorite cold/ wet weather footwear!

Winter was very cold, snowy and icy in Boston this year and these boots kept my feet nice and warm and these were great for walking. I was in love with these until it got above 30F and I stepped in a slush puddle and felt... water on my toes! These aren't waterproof! At lest not my pair! I am arranging for a replacement and if the new pair IS waterproof I will change my review here to 5 stars because otherwise these are a great product at an excellent price and so good I would continue to buy Kamik products over more pricey, popular brands.

I bought these for my step daughter. She wears them almost daily already. Very comfortable. Will keep your feet warm and dry.

I love these boots. We were hit by really frigid temperatures...and we have a dog which needs to go out every day no matter what weather. I have to say...I never froze in these boots. They are lightweight, very warm, very comfortable. Love them.

I LOVE these boots! They are extremely warm, comfortable, and (as far as I can tell) waterproof. I just wore them for an entire day of sledding/tubing in 13 degree weather and my feet were toasty warm! I've also worn them for a long walk in 8-inch deep (somewhat slushy) snow in 30 degree weather and my feet did not get wet. I usually wear an 8 in shoes and ordered a 9 to be safe. They are a little big, but just the right amount to fit an extra pair of socks and have wiggle room to stay warm. I would definitely recommend!

I originally ordered size 10 (my usual size), but it was too big so I exchanged for a 9 which fits perfectly. They are comfy, warm and cute. Thank you zappos customer service for being amazing. The free fast shipping and hassle free customer service make online purchasing worthwhile.

I'm a size 6.5-7 in most shoes and I ordered a size 7! The Taupe color is very cute and I love the black trim making it easy to arrange with other colors. They are nice and warm I wouldn't put them in super cold weather though, but easy NYC weather is good. Very easy to wear after you arrange the shoelaces a bit, I'm glad I decided to get these.

I'm really happy with these boots. After a miserable winter last year in Chicago, I knew I needed better shoes. These Kamik boots seemed to promise good quality for an affordable price.. So far I'm happy! They look really nice and almost cute (as far as boots go), but most importantly they're very warm. We haven't had super cold or snowy days so far (for which I'm thankful!) so I haven't tested them in the worst conditions, but I'm optimistic.

I was really excited to receive some snow boots that were the camel color of a classic "work boot," because that is what the picture is showing. Unfortunately these are much darker and mouse-colored than the photo. I may keep them because I am lazy, but buyer beware the picture doesn't do the boot hue justice. There is really no arch support, but I don't mind and it doesn't make it too uncomfortable. They are less sturdy than they look, and I haven't been able to wear them in extreme cold temps yet, but they seem very warm and because I always order a size up, I know I can fit extra socks in if need be. I do wish they were a little taller, they really come to just above my ankle and I worry about those fated snowdrift days in NYC. Overall they are kind of wide, kind of off-colored, and kind of unsupported, but seem warm and because I live in a city where shoes go to die, I think they will be okay for a season or two, which is all I really expect out of shoes.

These boots are warm yet super light, unlike many other snowboots. They're probably not waterproof in that you can step into a puddle, but I was walking in drier/icier, Minnesotan snow and my feet stayed perfectly dry. I took off one star because if you tighten them tight something within the boot structure caused a blister. Loosening the laces, however, took care of this problem.

Very cute, I ordered the brown, very comfortable, and they feel like they would be quite warm. However, I have foot problems, and even with my orthotics, they were a little wide and had no support. Sorry, going back. So far I like the Merrill Snowbound, but will be wearing those around the house for awhile before deciding to keep them.

I wore these all day, every day, for five days straight and they were great. My feet are wide but I had no discomfort. You can lace them as loosely or tightly as you need - the fabric is very forgiving. They are a little clunky looking on, probably because the suede and nylon are so soft - they are not as structured-looking as in the photo. Most importantly, my feet never got tired or sore, despite a completely flat footbed.

Brands I'd also recommend: Sorel

I read the reviews that said this boot runs large, and since I normally wear size 8 1/2 I thought that ordering a size 8 would be fine. I'm considering exchanging them for a size 7. These boots do feel very sturdy, not light like a fashion boot, but they're cute enough that, if the size 7 fits, I will probably live in these this winter. The only problem is that lace-ups do take a little longer to get on. My previous boots had lace but were shorter, so If I laced it the right way they could essentially function as slip-ons. These go almost halfway up my calf and probably won't do that.

Warm, practical yet stylish, has removable footbeds so I can put in my orthotics. My feet are narrow, so the boots fit wide on me. Shipping was quick. A large box.

These are huge. I am a 6 and they felt huge. Maybe I needed a size smaller. They are very roomy and just felt big. I am returning them.

They are nice looking but one of them hurt the back of my ankle. Not sure how warm they are since I didn't use them outside.

This looked like a nice warm boot, however as I pulled one boot out of the box I saw the seam was ripped on the back of the boot exposing white fabric underneath. The other was was also ripped, although not as bad. I returned them promptly and will search for something else.

I was very disappointed with these shoes. They began falling apart after only the 3rd or 4th time I wore them (the seam up the back came apart). Like the other reviewers have said the boots do run a little large since they don't offer half sizes. The boots seemed like they had good potential: they were warm and mostly comfortable and had great tread on the bottom, but no amount of tread will make up for poor construction.

How disappointing! These boots are cute, comfortable and have nice tread on the bottom. Unfortunately the first time I tied the laces up, one of the loops snapped off. I am not familiar with the brand so I am not sure if this was just a defect in the one boot or if I can expect that to happen again. Obviously I am returning them. Also, I usually wear a 9½ or 10 depending on the shoes and after reading the other reviews I decided to go with the 10 (they also do not offer half sizes). They were a little loose for me and I would have to tighten the laces all the way because they were loose around my ankle/lower calf area as well.
