I wanted a pair of boots that are warm, lightweight, and easily strapped into my snowshoes. Unfortunately I'm buying them at the end of the "season", so I'm not sure they're going to perform exactly the way I want them to. They do meet my lightweight requirements; they feel like slippers! And, they do appear to be warm enough (although I've only tested them at 20F). I'm going to trust Columbia's Omni-Heat on this performance characteristic as it hasn't failed in the Columbia jacket I own. The last requirement is to strap readily into my snowshoes. Because my snowshoes are at the cabin, I haven't been able to check this out yet. I'm going to assume they will work just fine, as the heal and toe on these boots aren't nearly bulky as my Sorels. One thing I want to caution potential buyers on is the fact that these boots not only run small in length, but they also do in width. I'm a narrow size 9. I bought a 9.5 and have "just enough" wiggle room in the toe. But what really surprised me was how tight they fit across the top of my foot. I'm hoping they "stretch out" some with repeated use. Oh, and they're cute!
