i live in a forest in montana near yellowstone park. it gets really cold. these boots keep my feet warm and cozy. the felt liner prevents sweating so feet do not get cold after getting warm. the boots are substantial enough to hike through deep snow, but not too heavy to drag you down. they are...

All the reviews said to size down, I did. I am usually an 8.5 and I ordered an 8, should have gone with a 9. When i went to exchange they were out of my size. I was, however, very impressed with the warmth of the boots. A little heavy, but I'm sure they make up for it!

These are the warmest boots you can buy. The liners were a little snug around the calf on my plus size daughter, but there is an elastic insert material in the front of the liner causing that and we just cut it. The liners themselves (thick felted wool style) are replaceable on these traditional style pack boots. The soles are very durable, and the new style tread pattern seems it will grip well in snowy conditions. My very finicky daughter has decided that they are fashionable as well, she is wearing them with stretch pants already, and it isn't really winter yet! I took these boots on a high elevation trek in the Andes a few years ago (acclimatizing and over-nighting at 20,000 ft) instead of nasty stiff plastic winter climbing boots and they kept my feet plenty warm and worked fine with my strap-on crampons. Just make sure your feet are not tight in the boot - that restricts your circulation and you will get cold from that. The boots run true to size. I wear a 7.5 running shoe and wear a 7.5 in this boot. My daughter wears a 7.5 shoe but got this boot in an 8.0 to fit in her super thick socks and says she is comfortable.

They are very heavy. I'm 5'8", 140 lbs, 63 yrs old. I haven't tried them in super cold weather or snow yet, but I'm quite sure they will do the job. Very well constructed. I couldn't use these for daily walks with our dogs -- too heavy! (That said, the days I've worn them, it was like walking with 2lb weights on my ankles --a bit more of a workout than usual!) They are a little large, which wearing thick socks cures, and are a little hard to get off. Got them for extreme weather, and I'm sure they will meet that need.

I have been wanting Sorel boots for years, but always balked at the price. Then I saw these at Sierra Trading and the price rocked. The fit is perfect and I love them. Cant wait for the first deep freeze and snow.
The boot's shell is not insulated, however it has a removable ThermoPlus felt liner that is 9mm thick which provides the insulation. There is no wool because the liner is made of synthetic fibers. (polypropylene, recycled polyester, and polyester.
