I just got these yesterday and today, we had sideways snow and a windchill of -36F. I only wore thin socks and my feet were toasty and dry. How's that for a recommendation? I have to say, however, that I wasn't out in it for long and I will update my review after I've tried them for a long period. D...

I wore these in Chicago last winter - also on a trip abroad in March. They're just as comfortable as my sheepskin slippers. They kept me dry in snow and slush; I wouldn't wear them in deep puddles but that's where rubber boots belong. I wore 1 pair of Merino socks and never got cold (only pulled out my 30-below-zero Sorel's once or twice last winter)
Unbelievably comfortable - thanks to the prior reviewers who pointed that out.

I've had to revise my original review since I didn't wear them long enough. We had particularly cold, and I mean cold! winter in Minnesota. It was so cold that 95% of Lake Superior was frozen over. The Polar Vortex was a gift and gave us the rare opportunity to walk on the lake to see the Ice Caves which were amazing. I wore these boots for the first time on the lake to the Ice Caves on Cornucopia, Apostle Islands, and the trek took 3-4 hours to walk there and back. Even though I wore thick socks, my feet got cold and felt like lead weights. These boots were NOT made for arctic cold winters. Also I must have misread the description because I could have sworn these were listed as Waterproof. They're not. Other than these boots not being warm enough, they're awesome fit, comfortable and very flexible. I honestly cried when I had to send these back but I needed to spend the money on a pair of boots that will keep my feet dry and warm. I'm thankful for Sierra Trading Post's generous exchange policy. Otherwise, I would have cried twice for the loss of money and boots. So there you go.If you plan to just walk around in these in the city, and not tromp around in ice and snow, then you'll be fine. I promise you they don't look bad either. They're very fashionable, like the in-thing and not meant to look like fluffy, furry, cutesy "foo-foo" boots.

I ordered these because they looked really warm and I suffer from cold feet a lot in the winters in NE PA and they were really warm and snuggly and felt like they would do the trick and they were at a great price on closeouts but I had to return them because as others have stated they run small and they didn't have the next size up.

I'm very glad I got these! After reading reviews here I was ready to order a size up. That size was not available so I ordered my EU chart size (38) and they fit perfectly! I wore them for 12 hours the first day and no discomfort at all. They look great with jeans and straight-leg pants and kept my feet warm on a 12-degree day. I'd recommend these more for urban hiking than the mountains, just because they are so pretty, but they seem durable enough. The "asphalt" color is a little more brown than pictured. Nice boots!
I don't have an accurate temperature rating, I live in Minneapolis where we've had 2 to -17 degrees and these boots, while extremely comfortable, haven't kept my feet that warm. Even with wool socks, I've noticed that these boots weren't the best protection against the polar vortex and snow we've been experiencing. I don't think they were designed for temperatures much lower than freezing and they're not super waterproof either. But they're really comfortable and as long as you don't have to be out in the extreme cold too long these boots will work fine.

I did not see a temperature rating on the tag but I can tell you that I have worn them when the windchill was -36 and my feet were warm. I have also worn them hiking in the snow for over 4 hours and, with just a liner sock, my feet stayed warm and dry, Hope this helps. Just be sure to order up a size.

I wore them in single digit temps in New York City. Snow was about 8 inches deep. I was warm and dry but I don't know how that translates to a MN winter.

No temp rating that I am aware of. There wasn't any literature in the box when the boots arrived. On really cold days I wear a thicker sock otherwise a thin sock.

Didn't notice a temperature rating on these. If you know that your feet get cold I would recommend that you go up one size to accommodate for heavy wool socks. I'm sure you realize, since you live in a cold climate, that you need to leave some air space so your toes have wiggle room and you don't impede your circulation. I planned on light use for these boots so I didn't follow my own advice and bought the 39. I am a size 8 shoe. After an hour outside I feel my toes cooling off. I wear these with medium weight wool socks. If I had to do it over I would definitely try the one size larger to see how much more room they would have given me and then decide. These boots are so soft I fell in love with them as soon as I put them on. However, I do feel very sure footed in them because they are not too big. Hope this helps.

I don't see temperature rating on it. This is more like casual use boot. But it keeps my feet very warm compare to other brand boots I wear. I am not sure how it will perform on staying outside long time but so far it is working great for me walking between car to building, etc.
