That are a really light weight and good looking winter boot. I believe they will be best for casual wear, since I don't think they would hold up to any kind of heavy work use. But for a decent looking boot for around town, and a warm one at that, they seem really nice.

I've been wearing these boots for a week now. Very comfortable. Size was perfect. Very warm. Elegant house slippers, like Uggs, but dressy enough to wear to church in the cold weather. I also wore them to a friend's house for Thanksgiving.

These are surprisingly lightweight! They are even lighter then athletic shoes, yet the are warm and cushiony. The black color is very nice. I'd say they run a tad big. My son normally wears a 12, but I got 11.5 because that's all that was left in black. They're comfy, but he probably could have worn an 11. Very stylish ... easy on and off.

I hate these boots! Wish I had never ordered them.They are soooooo hard to put on,and after the battle to get them on is over, my feet swim in them.I did order them 1/2 size larger than normal in hopes of using 2 pairs of socks when it's below 0.Forget that!. I can hardly get them on with 1 sock on each foot. Buying these boots was a HUGE mistake.
They're very light boots, weighing in at 1lb, 2oz each.
I personally wouldn't buy these boots for heavy work - I suspect the felt tops wouldn't hold up the way leather would, and the uppers are a very soft leather that scratch pretty easily. That is just my guess though, based on their look - I've not used them long enough to know how well they'd hold up first hand, and they may in fact prove very durable.

Boot weighs approx. 1-1/2 - 2lbs. Not heavy. Worn with a good (smart wool) heavy weight sock, they are quite warm.
