I bought these boots last spring for this winter and pulled them on for our first big snow. After walking through the snow I came onto a walkway to the train and slipped up in the air and landed on my hand and broke it. After the emergency room and my hand put in a cast I wore the boots the next day and again after walking in the snow I came to a smooth surface of pavement and I realized it was the boots - they have no traction - it was as though I was walking on ice. They are in the garbage. I have other Mephisto gore-tex hiking boots that are great in snow, ice, rain and then to walk on smooth floors. These boots have a basic technology flaw and should not be worn in inclement weather.

This is an awesome boot! The bottom and foot portion are waterproof and great for slugging through snow and melting snow. The top portion is not fleece lined but has insulation in the wall off the boot. Not made for -40 but it's perfect for my ski trip while shopping around the ski village.

I bought these for my mother. She wears mephistos almost exclusively. We bought the same size as her other mephistos. She can wear a thin or mid-weight sock with these, but not a thick sock. She's older and small, so light and flexible are important in a boot that will help her tolerate cold, but not extremely cold, conditions, outside for short periods of time. A bit of tugging to get them on & off, since the opening is just at the top.

I bought these boots to hike Mt. Whitney toward the end of October (when there was several inches of snow). I brought traditional hiking boots just in case, but these worked great. The traction was not the best in the slick areas, but with poles, everything worked well. Very comfortable and completely waterproof. They do run small. I usually wear a 7 and purchased an 8 with thermal socks it was a little tight, but worked. Had to be relaced after removal, which took some time and was not fun in the freezing temp., but for a day hike or even more extreme - great boot.
