Love love love these boots! They are not only warm, but so pretty! They are heading to Lake Tahoe next week! So excited to step off the plane with these boots on!
Also wanted to say I will be doing business with Sierra Trading Post from now on!

Although I hesitated about these boots after I read some reviews, I decided to buy them, knowing that in Vermont it is more likely to be snowy than rainy.
These boots are easy to put on and remove (I got one whole size larger so I could use bulky socks for warmth), large enough around the calf to allow pants to be tucked in, and they are cute and comfy.
I got the brown-ish felt (sort of a rusty brown, lighter shade).
The shipping was great, very speedy!
Great boots, great service!
They do slip on, and no they are not hard to get on. Quite easy in fact. I've worn thin cotton socks and thick wool socks. The footbed is very roomy, so a thick sock works better. I did get an arched insert, but they are so cute, comfortable, and warm. The fabric sheds water and snow really well, but I don't where them in slush, and the snow is very dry where I live. I love these boots! I get a lot of compliments on them. They really are adorable.

The dark strip in front is sturdy neoprene and allows for pulling the boot on with ease.

First of all, I love these! Pretty roomy in the footbed, so a thick sock is great. I have then on right now. They shed water and snow pretty easily, but I don't think they are completely waterproof. And unfortunately I don't know what you would waterproof them with. I did not do it, but I haven't had a problem with them getting wet. The snow where I live is pretty dry most of the time.

UM, don't think these can be waterproofed. I wore mine today in 20 degree snow--perfect for these. These are a felt material and will soak up water so wear them in snow or cold only, not in wet conditions. You can try the spray waterproofing but by no means expect more than easier snow shedding. I live in a rain forest but bought these anyway for those days the temps drop and I need warmth more than dryness. And as a side note, I get tons of compliments on these!!!

You don't have to waterproof since felt is naturally water resistant but I did waterproof my daughters just in case. I used Aqua Armor on my daughters pair. ..just be sure and get the one for natural fabrics not synthetics. I wouldn't go slogging through wet sloppy stuff with these though...these are more a dry snow condition boot.
