These are the second pair of snow boots I've had from Columbia, and both have a flaw design. This one, flaps don't stay up at all; they are half way hanging down after wearing them for less than an hour, which I can't wear long pants with them now because of that. I assume I got the defective ones. The elastic laces also don't hold up either; the actual pair looks nothing like in the picture what so ever. I can't really wear them anywhere now, but for a quick walk to the mail box, because I've done that and it's embarrassing the fact that the flaps are hanging down at all time—they look very inappropriate. I can't return them because I ordered them in June and just started to wear them in October, and that's when they showed defectiveness. Width wise fits fine, but I don't think I can rely on this pair when it's snowing hard or really cold outside since the flaps are not holding up and the elastic laces are not holding in tight, the cold wind is going right inside the boots. Very disappointed. I love Columbia jackets (one of the best out there), but I don't think I'll buy any more of Columbia boots again. I just don't have any luck with them.
