I bought these boots to take on my trip to Ireland since I heard it rains a lot there. I was looking for something cute yet I can use to hike up a mountain and not get wet all over. I haven't gone on my trip yet so I should know more later but up to now, they are soooo comfortable. I want to be able to wear these boots to go hiking but under jeans they look like normal cute shoes and not hiking boots, so to me they are versatile. I have been trying to break them in for the last couple of days and again, they seem so comfortable. I don't know about other people but I sure am happy with them :)

I got these to travel with and think they will serve multiple purposes as they are beautiful, waterproof, and comfortable. I just ordered a half-size up to accomodate comfy socks and an orthotic for additional arch support, and they fit like a dream.

I wanted a pair of tough waterproof boots stylish enough for commuting on subway & city streets. Material seems too delicate, Gore-Tex or not. They would be great for someone else, but I am returning them.

Lovely boots and great design. I ordered a 9.5M (which is big for me) but I had to go up to a 10M and would probably try a 10.5M if they had it. With socks and an arch support (definitely need something in the footbed) I would recommend ordering a size up. These will need to be broken in pretty well before hiking as they are a bit stiff. However, I think over time they will be a comfy boot.
Best Uses: Casual Wear, Cold Weather, Travel
Cons: Needs arch support, Too Stiff
Describe Yourself: Comfort-oriented, Simple But High Quality
