I wore the boots in 20 - 30 degree (F) weather in London and they were great. I ordered an 8 though my regular shoe size is a 7 or 7.5, depending on the shoe. Despite other reviewer comments, my recommendation would be to order the size of shoes you regularly wear. These boots come with enough room for thick socks. My only comfort complaint about them is because mine were too big. They felt better with two pairs of thick socks. They are cuter/more fashionable than I thought they'd be and I got compliments on them.

The boots are cute, look good for a winter boot. Flexible and lightweight, however, they are NOT WATERPROOF. They are water-resistant, and it says so on the manufacturer's website. I confirmed this by stepping into a big snowbank with some melting water in it while getting the mail and immediately felt the cold water get into the boot and wetting the socks. Good for short distance walking in the snow, but will not hold up to snow shwoveling or other such activities.
It appears they are made with a waterproof nubuck upper, but the seams are not seam taped so water could get in that way. You can use a spray waterproofing agent with no problems.

This boot did not have any specification to how much insulation was in the boot. A reviewer from NY states, "I have had this boot for two years now and absolutely love them. I've walked through the snow and my feet were never cold. Beautiful and still look that way. "
