    I was looking for warm boots, and I was delighted to find a pair that's also pretty and cool-looking. They're very comfortable, too. The first time I wore them with a pair of light colored pants I realized that the blue dye was bleeding onto the pants a bit, but for me this isn't a huge problem because I usually wear dark colors.

    I've worn these boots in cold, snowy, icy conditions, and they are warm with good traction. They were comfortable from the first time I wore them. They are stylish and even look good with a skirt! They fit me well, but may be too wide for someone with narrow feet.

    I purchased those boots because they were beautiful, high and looked warm and waterproof. However, after trying them on, I realized they wouldn't do for snowshoeing which was the purpose of my purchase. Too bad because I really like the look of them, they just won't do for heavy snow, very low temperatures and snowshoeing.

    best boots I've ever purchased, purchased 1/2 size larger to double up on socks, I spend a lot of time outside with temps in single digits or less, boots have not let me down, also very comfortable not stiff at all, easy to move in but supports foot.
    couldn't be happier

    This boot is really cute on. I like how tall they are for deep snow. I wore them riding my bike and they did well. Flexible, not stiff. Lightweight, too.

    I was so excited to receive my Ahnu winter boots, but sadly I will be returning them. Having worn the Ahnu Montara hiking boot, I already knew I would love the fit of the Monte Vista. I wear between an 8.5 and a 9.5 depending on style; ordered these in a 9.5 and they fit great, with room for 2 pairs of socks if necessary. I love the spacious toe box--perfect for slightly wide feet. However, over all I feel the Monte Vista does not live up to its description.

    First off, though the boot uses waterproof materials, its design is not waterproof or even snow-proof. The lacing creates a gap at the ankle that is not protected by the eVent bootie and this space lets in cold air and precipitation. This could easily be fixed with a fully gusseted lacing system.

    I also feel that calling this an insulated boot is misleading. While the shaft does sport a quilted, reflective lining, there doesn't appear to be much, if any, insulation in the foot or footbed--which is where you really need the warmth!

    These boots would serve fine for short walks in areas with mild winters, but I certainly wouldn't want to hike in them or use them in temperatures much below freezing. I hope Ahnu redesigns these boots in the future--I'd be first in line to buy a pair if they included extra insulation and a full gusset to keep out rain and snow.

    :( I ordered these boots for waterproof snow comfort, as I work for a ski park in Northern California, but the tongue is open from the ankle up and snow will just pack in....not good! Returned the boots. Super cute and comfortable if you don't need waterproof
