I loved these boots! I went on vacation from Los Angeles to New York over New Years. Walked a million miles and my feet were very happy. Even though Los Angeles is pretty warm I wear them on any cold days. The fit is true to size. They are expensive but awesome!

Pleasantly surprised with how much I like these boots after reading some of the other reviews. Calf size fits well, has an easy on/off zipper on the side but an attractive lace-front so it still has fashion appeal. The ankle size isn't bad at all and I have little ankles and they are soft enough to wear without socks for those quick trips outside with the dogs. I really like the size/shape of the foot part of the boot. Wearing a size 10 boots can give the appearance of a Goliath but these are reasonably sized and look nice. I have the Sorel Joan of Arctic and they are much bigger in appearance and haven't noticed any difference in comfort and warmth level between the two. I bought the Merrils in the white combo and like them very much. I'm considering getting the same boot in another color.

Bought these boots and they are even better than I expected. I take am 8 1/2 and have a 16inch circumference. I ordered them in 9 because I wanted to make sure I had enough room for thick socks. They are a bit bigger than I needed so, I ordered in 8 to see if there is a big difference, still waiting on those. Whatever the case, I will be keeping a pair. I love them The style is fantastic, just what I was looking for. The leather is great! I'm very flat footed and they feel awesome. Standard support. I'm just so happy I found these. Order true to size as they leave a little room to accommodate a thicker sock.

Warm and comfortable - designed to be adjusted to fit the calf area perfectly. The tie front and zip sides keep moisture and snow out. The ankle area is roomy and benefits from thick cuffs while the new leather breaks-in, because the bending at the ankle will contact your ankle bone. As it softens, this shouldn't be an issue. The sole sticks to ice for safe walking. The foot is flexible and sturdy. Attractive.

I just received these in the mail. Put them on and so warm and comfortable. I love that they have a zipper will make getting them on and off much easier when their wet. I am normally a size 7.5, but saw others advised to go size bigger. So I got an 8 and fit perfect. Can't wait for our next snow so I can really try these babies out.

So comfortable! I am a standard 7 and these fit perfectly even with fairly thick socks. They also loosen just a bit with wear, so I wouldn't worry about them being too snug. And they are so cute! I've gotten lots of compliments on them. And they are very warm! One of the best features after the cute style is the side zipper. I was concerned I'd have to do and undo the laces all the time, but Merrell thought of everything!

Wonderful boots -- worth the money for sure. They keep my feet TOASTY warm and DRY in the slush. I can traipse thru anything and nothing breaks their barrier. Plus, they look funky-fresh. Expensive but well worth it.

These are my favorite pair of winter boots that I've ever owned! They are stylish, have great arch support (can walk all day in them) and keep my feet nice and warm (but not hot like Uggs do). I live in Chicago so it's very important that I have a good, quality pair of boots. These did not disappoint! I can wear them with regular socks and they fit my thin calves perfectly. If you have thicker calves, they might not fit so well.

I love these boots. They are very comfortable and stylish. I have a hard time finding boots that fit but these are nice because the heel does not slide and you can tighten the laces for additional support around the ankle. They are well worth the price!

I love these boots. They are probably the most comfortable boots that I have ever had. I bought them for function/traction in slippery snow but also wanted them to look cute, which they do. I bought them in the Wild Dove color, and they go with everything. I have skinny legs, and the leg shaft is quite snug, but that is awesome for me.

I am really liking these! I wanted cute, comfortable and functional so I can wear them into work crossing the soggy city and also wear them to play in the snow with my son. I think these will be perfect. Most of my boots are heels or wedges and a little more upscale, but I think I will not feel sloppy in these. They also do not look giant in a size 10, and I think they will go with brown and black. They are very nice! Also, a zipper is super convenient.

While it's still summer in LI/NY, I can't vouch for how they do in the snow and extreme cold temps but the fit and comfort level is perfection! I don't have large calves or ankles and most boots are huge in that area which makes someone like me (5'7" 140 lbs) exhausted just walking around in them like they're fireman's boots. These fit. The added bonus is the zipper. You get the laces right and you have a perfect fit every time!

I love these boots!I wear them with wool socks, had to adjust the lacing several times before I got them just right around my ankles(I have small ankles and about average calves). Tough to pull on the first few times, but with wear got easier. They perform great in the snow - the tongue is gusseted to just above the ankle, but the tongue is wide and snug to the top. If you are walking in deep snow for any amount of time, invest in good pair of gators no matter what boot you are wearing.

Bought these for a Christmas present to myself. Last year LI got crazy snow and I wasn't prepared so this year I splurged on a pair of really nice snow boots. We finally got about 2in of snow turned rain so I felt kinda justified wearing my new snow boots. They are wonderfully comfy and cute! They are really great for small calves and have a nice slim ankle too. My calves are 13in at widest so boot circumference is always an issue for me. These boots have laces to tighten as you wish and a zipper so you don't have to fuss with the laces every time! Only downfall was that my feet got a bit sweaty while walking around the mall though. Hah. Can't wait to try these babies out in a real snow storm! I'm sure will be warm and durable for many winters!

My sister and I bought these boots for our Colorado trip this Christmas. We love them. Our feet stayed warm and dry the whole time...even in our 2 1/2 hour snow shoe excursion we went on. Never even had to break them in they went straight from the box to my foot. Love them!

I got these today, just in time for a snow storm. I ordered a size 8 (my normal size) even though some reviewers had recommended sizing up. Because of a mis-marked box, I received a size 7.5. I didn't notice this right away, but they seemed a bit tight in the ankle as I was trying them on. I loosened the laces and once they were on my foot they fit just right over medium weight wool socks. They seem warm and are nice looking. I have thin calves and these fit nicely. I love that the lacing can be adjusted to fit over pants or more tightly over leggings or tights.

Cute and comfortable right out of the box. True to size. I normally take an 8, I ordered an 8 and they fit perfectly. Good arch and comfortable to walk around in all day. Warm enough for running errands, etc.. But my feet do get cold if I'm outside for longer periods of time & it's frigid (as it often is where I live!) I'd want warmer boots if I were hiking and it was below 20 degrees. They're waterproof. I've been through lots of snow and slush, and no leaks.

I love these boots. They are super comfortable and keep my feet warm and toasty (I live in Minnesota). And they are cute enough to walk around in the mall, grocery store, etc. I also love Zappos' customer service. The first order accidentally had the wrong pair of boots in it. Zappos had the correct pair at my house (free of charge) within 1½ days.

I've been on the hunt for warm, waterproof, stylish snow boots for about a month now. I ordered 5 different pairs to try on and these were the winners. They are very comfortable and cute. The material around the foot feels very well made and the fur at the top is nice and soft. I like that you can adjust the ties so that they fit your leg just perfectly, but then once they're correctly fitted, there's a zipper on the side that makes them very easy to put on and take off. The boot seems to be just a little narrower than a typical shoe, which I did not mind since there was still plenty of room to wear thick socks. I normally wear an 8.5 and ordered an 8.5 and would recommend the same. Not only will these boots be warm and waterproof, but they also will very comfortably to walk in. The quality seems like it will easily last for years. Overall, a great investment. I would definitely recommend.

The best investment ever! They are warm, comfortable (however, it takes about a week to break them in) and they are waterproof, what else can you wish for during this terrible winter? They are wide enough in case you like to wear 2 socks or if you need insoles for extra support (like me).
