Closeouts. Not just for relaxing by the fire, Sierra Designs' Fireside down booties feature waterproof breathable Tropozone technology and 700 fill power goose down so you can venture away from the hearth without sacrificing the warmth.

I wasn't sure about these boots, thought they would be more of a packable bootie. However, they turned out to be quite a nice addition to my boots. Waterproof so I can wear them after skiing or snowshoeing to warm my feet while driving back down the mountain, or just for going outside to get the paper in the morning before the fire has warmed up the house. I have also worn these to sweep snow off the driveway, a fun boot that warms up my lower legs, and feet! Now I wish I had purchased a second pair to give to my daughter.

These are glorified slippers, but they provide plenty of room for additional insoles -- I added one layer of support and one layer of fleece. Lace-up means they stay on, and kept my feet dry and warm when trudging through hip-deep snow with my dog during and after the East Coast blizzard.

These shoes were super cute for the right thing. Unfortunately I bought them for winter backpacking and camping. They were way to heavy and bulky to use for this, so i returned them. If you wanted them for around the house or to run quick errands they'd be perfect.

I was looking for something warm and light to wear out for quick 1-3 block jaunts. It's -30f today and tried them out for the first time. I do agree that they need a warmer in insole so I took the heavy insole out of my Sorel Glacier boot liners and stuck them in these booties. Feet did great running errands(walking, not driving). Not sure how the soles will last. There is snow everywhere here so that should help them last. On cement or rough terrain the might not last long and be akeward. I could feel all the unevenness of the ground- like walking around in slippers really. And there is no ankle support like typical boots. They were insanely warm inside (too warm in my opinion). It is a real challenge for me to find items that keep my feet warm. Have issues with cold feet and sores on my toes (possibly chilblains). I'm a size 8-9 and went with XL so i have extra room. This way nothing is rubbing on my toes like regular boots/shoes often do. Hoping these serve me well for a long time.

These are like a hug for your foot, but when you stand up to walk around, you're left wondering how the bottoms of your feet would stay warm and realize there is no support in them. I wore them from home into my garaged car to drive my son to school and was amazed my feet were actually cold in them even in the car. Plus, they sag down on the sides when I walk. Laces tighter could fix that but sole still an issue. Sending them back.
