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'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!

These boots have kept my toes warm since I've got them. I'm normally a size 8.5 and they're a bit tight, especially when I put on thicker socks but those aren't really necessary so I can wear thin socks with them. I hope they stretch out. The color is more purple than the picture makes them to look. It's not a bad thing but just something that others might want to know.

First of all I rarely do reviews. I live in Northern PA and these boots arrived the same day as the Polar Vortex. I love these boots! They are the warmest boots I have ever owned. I walk 10 miles a day and my feet are never cold. The most important thing for me is to have warm dry feet and these boots do not fail! As other reviewers have reported the boots run small and I did have to order a size up. I am a size 9 and I ordered a size 41. The boots are very light weight and extremely comfortable. They feel like bedroom slippers. My only complaint is that, although they do not feel narrow to me when I have them on, entry is more difficult then should be. Also, they aren't particularly stylish but warmth is far more important to me then style.
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.
