I really like these boots for an every day, casual boot to keep my feet dry and warm on cold, wet days. The platform keeps my feet up out of water and wet grass when I'm walking my dogs. The sueded material around the ankles is super soft so it doesn't rub and gives a little more warmth when I'm wearing leggings. They do not provide foot much support and they run a little large all over the foot but I would expect this in a winter boot. However, they are still really comfortable to wear all day, so I think that the platform must account for some shock absorption. I do usually like a more supportive shoe so I am surprised that my feet feel so good in them. Also, they are not heavy at all. They are quite warm when worn with just a thin sock.

Love these boots. They run narrow....... they will not stretch, so sadly returning.

I am so disappointed because these are the nicest looking winter boots I could find! They do fit a little small but after trying them on I can tell they have very little cushion and no arch support. My intention was to wear these for most of the day at work but I can tell they will not get me through a full day. I wish I could find a winter boot that fit like an athletic shoe!

I bought this boot for my husband because it offered a combination of superb Workman ski, warmth and the added feature of lacing with a double zipper to make for ease of pulling on and off. Unfortunately the largest size offered was too small and the only width was too narrow. What a shame.

I liked the boots a lot. I am in and out of a car dealership all day long and they look good as well as work good. They only thing I did was buy some extra waterproof spray to re spray after a few months. I wish I would of just water proof sprayed them right away. Comfortable, warm, stylish. 9.5 in my book. Just need extra waterproof

I have been wearing these all winter and I love them. I have walked miles in these things and the sole is hardly worn. I would say that they have a ton of room in the foot, so much so that I put an insert inside but once the insert was in these things were fire. I dont want winter to end because I wont be able to wear these anymore. They are waterproof, they stay clean looking even when you step in nasty stuff, salt does not damage them and they are warm. I would say the coldest I used them in is 10 degrees F.

I usually wear a 10.5 wide. Based on other reviews, I was hoping to get by with the 41. Nope. Not even close. Way too tight.

Great boot if you live in an icy, snowy climate! Love the cleats that retract and the boot itself is comfy, fashionable and warm. My only suggestion to Pajar is to put a connecting ring on the cleat instrument so that you don't lose it! Would love to just hang it on my keyring.

Better than expected. Very comfortable for long distance walking, warm, and best feature are the ice grippers for those times when it is icy and you typically slide all over the place. I inadvertently bought a size larger than needed but I was very happy as I wear a heavier sock with my boots and I am very comfortable with the fit. Have recommended these to several friends already.
Zappos Reviewer from Massachusetts on January 24, 2018
Great boot; really warm and easy in and out. However, even with a narrow foot, these are really, really narrow! Hated to return them because they are perfect for icy winter weather, but they would quickly become uncomfortable. Zappo's is great; especially the customer care!
Zappos Reviewer on January 14, 2018
Had these for a year; wish I could return them as they are not only NOT warm, they drain the warm from your own feet. There are higher priced ones of this brand, and maybe they would work. These are washout to me.
Grace J from Upper Midwest on January 14, 2018
Loved these boots.. I could tell that they would be perfect for the cold, and snowy weather. I have a narrow heel, so the boots were too wide in the heel, causing them to slip up ad down. Sorry have to return them.
Zappos Reviewer on January 11, 2018
WOW!! Canadians must have very narrow feet. Super cute, perfect fit in the heel(I like a snug fit) but way to narrow for width. Had to return because I am not sure the next side up would be wide enough...
Gidget from Costa Mesa on January 04, 2018
Despite my EXTREME desire to love this boot, after 3 tries to get the right size, I have to face facts that this boot does not work.
Zappos Reviewer on January 03, 2018
great boots! I think this is the best pair that I have ever tried in terms of warmth, waterproof and style. I wanted a casual pair of winter boots that I can wear. I've worn it for 1 day and here's my thoughts: incredibly warm - boston these few days are single digits with wind chills -10. These boots are WARM! stylish/casual - I wear these to work. they are both functional both casual and semi-casual. comfort - incredibly comfortable. soles are cushioned and plenty of insulation as well. love this pair of shoes!
Andy from Boston on December 30, 2017
My foot was swimming in this shoe. I tried lacing up really tight, but that made the portion around the ankle unbearably snug. These have to go back. So bummed that smaller sizes aren't available. They looked really cool and weren't too heavy.
Zappos Reviewer on November 15, 2017
These were super cute, really soft inside, and really warm. Overall, I liked them a lot and will look for Pajar again when looking for boots. They were VERY small, but some of that was my error because I am not used to ordering European sizes. I wear an 8 (or sometimes a 7.5) and went with a 39 since that was the bigger yet comfortable size I was looking at in Birkenstocks. I could barely jam my foot into the boots. I would probably have tried a 41 if I was happy with the look. But, I was not. I was looking for a boot to sometimes wear over snugger pants and sometimes underneath. The tops of these don't close at all and therefore stick out so much you'd never be able to wear them under anything.
Zappos Reviewer on November 09, 2017
I love the way these boots look but I ordered my regular size and couldn't even get my foot into them. I'm afraid if I get a size up, they're going to look huge on me. I'm so sad.
Zappos Reviewer on November 02, 2017
I wanted these boots so much! They are too narrow to wear with anything thicker than a nylon. Very sadly returning them.
Zappos Reviewer from Beautiful NW Ohio on September 27, 2017
these boots are comfy, true to size and very cute. Was out on a hike in the snow today and my feet were warm and dry.
Zappos Reviewer from lake tahoe on February 03, 2017
Size 41 is equivalent to 10, 10.5 and 11, They RUN SMALL! I wear a size 10 and can always get a size 10 on with ease (sometimes a 9.5). I could barely get this boot on. It was a very tight fit. I am disappointed because they are very nice. I will try the size 42 if that size comes available.
Zappos Reviewer from Massachusetts on December 29, 2016
These are the warmest, most comfortable winter boots I have ever had. Wore them out today in frigid temps and felt like I was in my bedroom slippers. The furry lining is so silky and the insole has marvelous cushioning. Flexible enough on city streets. Very secure on ice and slush, even without the ice grippers engaged. No overheating inside during a long lunch. Cute, too, with skinny cords tucked in. These were on sale and I lost out on the last pair in my size, but Zappos notified me when another 39 became available, still at the sale price. A great deal on a great boot. For reference, I'm a true 39 in boots and these fit perfectly. A nice, wide toe box and good arch support. Love 'em.

I knew we would be for a heavy winter in New England but I did not want a pair of bulky snow boots. Also I really wanted something that was easy to get in and out of. These did not look really big and had a side zipper so I assumed they would fit the bill. But they were bulkier than I assumed and the zipper is awkwardly on the outside and was really more of a cosmetic feature because they did not really make the boot any more loose or tight and the quality of the zipper made me feel it was about to break. They were really warm and pretty comfortable though but that was not enough to make me want to keep them.
Zappos Reviewer from Boston on November 02, 2016
I hate winter boots, but finally found ones that are bulky, warm and comfortable.
Gomez from Chicago, IL on April 12, 2016
These are the most NARROW men's shoes I've ever tried on. I'm a woman with a wide foot so, for boots, I often try men's. Even with a normal sock (not a warm one), these were too narrow! All of the Pajar boots I tried on ran narrow! So disappointing! Otherwise, they were great!
