Simple, pull on boots (you really don't need either zipper). I wear them in snow, ice, and rain, and have even walked a couple miles in them. They're plain in every way, so they work with my suit pants as well as my yoga pants. I have better snow boots that I use for being outside and hiking around for a long period of time, but I love these for getting places. No awkward forward-folding-while-untying-laces-for-five-minutes and they blend in when you're in a formal corporate environment, too. Plus, not that pricey.
I had both knees replaced last summer, and I am not totally confident that I will not fall on the ice here in Alaska. These boots have eased my mind considerably- they keep my feet warm, provide protection from snow, and give good traction on ice and snow.
I love my new boots! They are light weight, easy to get on and off with the double zippers, warm in the cold weather and comfortable to wear. I normally wear size 7 1/2 shoe so bought size 8 boots. They fit perfectly with medium to light weight socks. I'm considering buying another pair to have on hand for when this pair wears out.
These boots have been my best friends during our recent bout of subfreezing temperatures and snow; I also use them as rain boots to walk the dogs when it's really sloppy. They are warm and comfortable, with secure footing. I haven't needed the side zippers, but those definitely make the boots easy to take on and off. My only caveat is that the boots run large: I ordered a 7, which is about a half-size smaller than my usual sneaker size, and they are big (with heel slippage) unless I'm wearing two pair of socks (one of them thick, smartwool winter socks). Fortunately, that works out fine for my purposes - I was looking specifically for a cold-weather boot, and the extra socks just make the boots warmer. So keep that in mind when ordering. Otherwise, these are great boots and I'm really happy to have them!
These are just what I needed, an inbetween boot into Spring. They are so comfortable to walk my dog with in the rainy, mud season. I am impressed with this little boot. I use my tall Sorels for the Winter months yet they are too bulky going into Spring. Just right!
These are perfect for a warm, waterproof boot. They fit true to size and they are comfortable for my usually soar feet. They are not super fashionable, but they are low profile and I really need them to trudge through the snow, not a red carpet runway. I can comfortably hike a couple miles in the snow and stay warm, dry and comfortable.
Ordered these in the nick of time. It's been a hard winter and these are perfect for getting to and from the car and even slipping on to feed the birds in the yard. I love the zipper on each side. Not a fashion boot but that's not what I ordered them for.
Wore with mid weight socks and after shoveling a large driveway, 4 inches of snow in 15* temp, my feet were warm! The boots do run small. Had to order an 8 when a 7 has always been my size. Not fashionable but perfect for me.
I sold my really cute tall snow boots because with their lace up front it took forever to put them on & take off. Replaced them with 2 pair of Tundra Boots, Fran & Christy- LOVE them both. Together they didn't cost as much as my cute warm boots that were such a chore to wear. Fran (& Christy) are a little more than just practical. Yes, they are warm, waterproof, extremely easy on & off, but they have a certain style of their own --they do the job in snow & sub zero weather and that's the important thing for me. The reasonable cost helps with giving both styles 5 stars.
Purchased for my mom who was looking for waterproof rain/snow shoes with good traction that had zippers to allow easy on and off. She is very happy with them out of the box. Heel slips if she is not wearing socks. Seems to have very good traction on wood floors. Will have to see how they hold up to the elements but initial impression is perfect
Nice looking boot however I need half size in this style. Tried 7 it was small. Ordered size 8 my feet were swimming in it with the wool socks I ususally wear with my boots. I am sorry that it has to go :(
I really like these boots! fit well, I'm a size 9 and these fit great with medium thick socks, great for quick jaunts in snow conditions and rain. When they get worn out they make for great work boots in the garden.
I really like these boots had a blizzard today and wore them all day outside. Feet are totally dry the whole time. I usually were shoe size 8 to 8 1/2, I ordered these boots in a size 9 and they were perfect for me. I'm happy with purchase.
