These boots are insanely comfortable. Really, they are. I was worried the fur would be too warm since I've never worn fur lined boots before. That's not the case, though these are my warmer than regular leather boots I usually wear. I missed the initial 5ft snowfall in Erie this year, but I was around during the aftermath and subsequent snowfall. Here's a short pros/cons Pros: Warm, surprisingly good grip, kept snow/water out well. Con: If the velcro detaches in the snow, it's not sticking back on, which happened when I started digging out a friend's car from the several feet of snow around it. That's the only time it's happened so far though. Wish there was more velcro at the calf just for a more snug fit there, since I wear these under jeans not over them. Hope they hold up well over the years because I quite enjoy them!
