These are very comfortable and provide ample warmth. I think they are very stylish for a heavier winter boot. They are well suited to long hikes in snowy conditions!

I wear an 8, I originally ordered a size up as others suggested, but a 9 was too big so i returned them for an 8 and i am happy with how they fit.

I really love the look of these boots and the fit. They do run slightly small. I usually wear a size 6-6.5. I ordered size 6 in these and they fit great even with thick socks. Unfortunately, like other reviewers mentioned, my heel pops out as I walk. I think they would be very uncomfortable to wear for an extended period of time. I am sadly returning.

I’ve owned several pairs of Kamik rain/snow boots that are wonderful, but sadly these are being returned. Like others have said, the heel box is HUGE and the boot itself short/much tighter than the heel box. My heel doesn’t stay put at all.

Of the three winter boots I ordered from Zappos, this one took the prize. It is very nice looking even in the larger sizes. The fake fur lining is super soft and very warm. The gusset tongue will definitely keep the snow out and we get a lot of snow in New Hampshire. It is a bit difficult to tighten the laces enough to avoid heel slippage so I'm hoping I won't get a blister on a long snowshoeing hike. For a boot that is definitely waterproof, it is fashionable enough to wear with a good wool coat. As for traction in the ice, I'll have to wait a bit, but judging by today's chill wind that won't be long.

I’m an 8.5 and got a 9. Fit was great and they were super comfy but I had the same ankle issue that plagued so many other reviewers. The ankle area of the boot needs way more structure to be functional!

Unfortunately, had to return these. Tried them on with a pair of thin socks as soon as they arrived, and I was a little disappointed to find that they were snug even though I ordered one size up. I normally go 1/2 - 1 size up on boots but these were still too small.

The boots kept the feet warm but it's folding down in the back above the heel and it's causing blisters. So, I am not sure what to do about this boot.

Laces don’t tighten well. Hard to get a snug fit around ankle. Cute style but I returned.

These are super light weight for the amount of warmth they provid, but they are very bulky around the ankle. They felt like they had collapsed in the back and dug into my ankle bone, though, so i ended up returning them.

There is no heel pocket in these boots. The minute I tied them up and took a step my heels came up and weren’t stable at all. I’ve never had a shoe or boot feel like this. Totally disappointing as they check every other box on my list!

There is an uncomfortable break where the rubber foot portion of the boot meats the back of the boot. This "break" hits the back of my upper ankle and is fairly uncomfortable. I can't imagine walking in these for even a short distance. Unfortunately, I will be returning these.

Just got back from ski trip to Keystone, Colorado. These boots could not have made me any happier! I thought they might be a pain to lace up... but the laces tighten soooooo easily that getting them tight from base to top is a breeze. I wear a size 10 and bought a size 11 so I could wear super thick socks with them. They fit like a dream! SOOOO comfortable and easy to adjust if you need them tighter (like socks) or looser (thick or double socks). My feet never got cold!!!

I ordered these and returned them not realizing how tall of a boot they are. I normally wear a 9 and order 9.5 and they fit good. I have wider calves so the taller boot I felt looked odd on my leg. Other wise good boot.

I read many reviews on size since I would not be trying them on. I researched all types of brands as well. I have never owned a pair of snow boots living in southern Arizona. Now I live in northern New Mexico at 7500' and there is lots of snow and ice this year. The shaft size is perfect for the fluffy dry drifts. My feet have not felt cold even standing around in my uninsulated crafting studio. For added stability on ice, I also bought a pair of Pro Yaktrax size M. I normally wear a 9 1/2 shoe but I knew I would be wearing wool socks, so I got size 10. I have worn them all day without any arch issues and my foot ball area never felt cramped even with wool socks. I am very happy with my purchase.

I absolutely love these boots! I have foot problems and have to wear orthotics, so finding snowboots is very difficult and I live in a very snowy climate and walk dogs for a living! These boots have removable insoles, so I can put my orthotics in easily. They fit great and are super comfortable. I can wear them all day and there are very few shoes I can say that about. And on top of all that, they are adorable!! I love the way they look. I am thrilled with my purchase. The only two complaints I could come up with are: 1) the laces are a bit long, and 2) I wish it had a loop on the back to make the boot easier to pull on because I don’t need to untie them to take them on and off. I highly recommend this boot.

I had a pair of Kamik boots for at least 6 years. I wore them primarily for walking my dog during cold weather. We walk twice a day, every day and the tread was getting very thin. I bought these to replace the old pair and am not disappointed. These are definitely more fashionable than the old pair and I like the waterproofing and the fit has a very cozy fit. They have also had great traction as I have walked in 6+ inches of snow for the last 2 weeks.

I loved the look of these boots. However they were just a little bit too small. I order an 11 in white which is the biggest size they come in. I typically wear an 11 in Ugg and Keen. I tried without a sock and they were still a little snug.

I typically wear a 7, but with boots I go a size up. These were still too small. The 8 felt like a 7, and the shoe is a narrow fit. They also felt pretty bulky. I love Kamik and I think they make great quality shoes, but these just didn’t work for me so they had to go back.

I wanted these to work! I wear a size 8.5, but ordered a 9 based on other reviews. It was still too snug. I was disappointed, and wore them around in the house for a long time, just to be sure that they would not work. I didn’t want to order up a whole size larger, so sadly returned them. Quality and warmth factor seemed good.

I love them, but the ankle is not supported at all! I cannot imagine to be in a ice or snow and don't feel my ankles enough supported. I love the style and the red color is very feminine, warm too...but I returned them.

These boots felt amazingly thick and fluffy -- seriously, about an inch of fluff the whole way around your leg! I had no doubt they would be warm. But I've recently had an epiphany -- I have high arches, and that pushes my foot up higher in that area than most people. So the plastic shell that covers the foot area pushed down on the top of my foot, making this slightly uncomfortable. I had to pass on these.

I'm usually a size 7.5 so thought 8 would do it even though others had commented that these ran small. the first order size 8 was too small. I sent them back and now have a size 9. When I wear boots it is cold and snowy so a bit extra size is better than too small. These boots had no arch support so I had to add my own arch support foot bed. Again the little bit of extra size came in handy for this. No snow yet but I"m heading to cold, wet , snowy , icy conditions shortly.

I ordered multiple pairs of boots trying to find the best ones. These were my favorite looking ones. I was truly hoping the other reviews about a wide heel bed were wrong for me. Unfortunately, my heel wouldn't stay down and by the time I walked across my living room my sock was half off inside the boot. Really bummed because they are cute and comfortable otherwise.

This was my first kamik boot purchase and unfortunately I wasn’t a fan of these. They were comfortable and seemed well made but they were hard to lace and really bulky in my opinion.
