I ordered these boots at the tail end of winter. After the 110 inches of snow we had here in New England, my other boots had worn out and I needed a pair quickly. Every other retailer was sold out of ladies boots in my size. I happened upon these at STP, and am I glad I did! The price was right, and the brand was reputable, so I ordered.
I ordered an 8.5. I usually wear an 8, but I wanted room for thick socks. The 8.5 works perfectly. When the boots arrived, I noticed something I hadn't when looking at them online - they have a zipper on the inseam. At first I wasn't happy about this, as I thought that it was silly to have a zipper and laces, and thought that the zipper might detract from the look of the boot. After three weeks of more wintery/muddy weather, I am SO GLAD these boots have zippers! It makes getting them on and off SO much easier! You can adjust the laces and the tongue to the look you want, and forget it! The zippers allow you easy in and out without disturbing the laces. LOVE this feature!
The boots have great support and cushioning. I have gone for several 1-2 mile hikes in them and have been completely comfortable. The seam where the leather foot meets the suede shaft was a bit stiff at first, but softened up nicely after a few wearings. I can also say they are truly waterproof, as I went wading in the water to dig a few clams, and my feet stayed perfectly dry.
I ordered the golden color, which looks great with everything, but I like these so much that I may order the black, as well!

I love this boot and soon after I bought it, I swore of buy another pair if I found them. But after a year of wear the stitching started coming lose on the waterproof part. Of course, this is a review on one pair of boots that I bought in a remote outlet store, but it's still an issue. They've lost all of their warmth and the rubber pads aren't much use on ice.

The sizing of this boot is way off. It is not true to size. I ordered 2 sizes up and they were still to small. I have returned them. I will not try a different size. Cant trust next size will fit. To much hassle. I will say that they did seem well made and warm

These shoes keep my feet warm in the -10 to -20 weather in February in Chicago. My feet stay warm when I trudge through unplowed streets. The outside of the shoe is made of either leather or leather substitute, which quickly develops folds around ankles. I don't mind particularly, but they don't hold shape as well as hiking boots, for example. More importantly, the leather seems to be very easily scratched/damaged by routine wear and tear, for example due to hitting the shoe against a corner or even stepping on the back of one shoe with the other when taking them off. Also, some decorative stitching has been coming loose just after a couple of weeks. So while these are warm and seem like a good buy at Sierra prices, I'm not sure if they'll last very long,
