These are high quality and fairly weatherproof winter boots. The are not insulated. They fit fine (to a little roomy) once your feet are in them, but I have to struggle to get my foot past the turn (on the way in only). You don't want to have to remove them very frequently.
Wore them with wool socks and sock liners last weekend and spent 10 straight hours in deep snow and very wet slush on a mild February day. Feet stayed warm and dry. If were in the 20's or below, socks would have had to have been doubled due to a lack of built in insulation. Size 14 medium.

These boots are probably the most comfortable pair of boots that I have ever owned. I only gave them 4 out of 5 stars because they are a beast to get on; there's no loop to grab on to to help pull them onto your feet, which makes it a pain in the butt to get them on, but man, once you get them on, you don't want to take them off!! I have a really big big toe so I have a hard time finding shoes that give me enough toe room, but these give my big toe plenty of room. Not only are they really comfortable, but they look really, really nice. My wife loves the way that they look. If you don't mind wrestling with a pair of boots just to get them on, then you'll love these boots.

I'm a solid size 12 in Vans and most other shoes/boots. I read other reviews that stated these run big so I ordered a 11.5 and they fit great, but I may order a size 11 to compare the difference. I don't wear thick socks so my feet have plenty of room in these.
I'd agree with another reviewer that stated the sole was a little slippery in certain conditions, but I hope the sole will get broken in and this will be eliminated.
All in, it's a great boot, the lacing system takes a second to figure out, feel solid when wearing, break in quick, and you'll get compliments everywhere you go.

I basically bought these because I was sick of wearing the big Sorel rubber boots during this never-ending winter weather. These boots broke in very easily and, though I added some water-proofer, they haven't let a drop of water in. My feet have stayed warm and they are far less bulky than the big rubbers. The only downside, the grip on these isn't fantastic and does nothing to prevent sliding side-to-side or on wet indoor surfaces after coming in from the snow.

Nice, black brushed leather looks great with very casual to dressy casual attire. They're also a bit more sophisticated than the usual rugged boot styles for men. Bought these for my son, and he reports that they feel comfortable right out of the box. They also keep his feet warm and dry.

They are extremely comfortable. I wear them not only for outdoor activities but as causal boots as well. They are not only comfortable but stylish as well. I've purchased 2 other pair for my 2 sons as well they love them as much as I do. My youngest son said they are awesome in the Texas hill country.
