I like this product so far. I bought them more as a rain boot so I have not had the chance to try them in the snow. I am normally a solid 7.5 wide but after reading some reviews I decided to go with an 8. It fits well when I am wearing thick socks, but they are a little loose when I have thin socks on.

I have a pair of old-school Sorel Carabou boots (Canadian made) that I got thirty years ago and still wear daily. About five years ago I ordered and replaced the linings and they are still going strong. These new Tivoli boots are more slimline and are very cute, but they aren't made the same as Sorels from years past. A Columbia Sportswear salesperson said that some Sorels are more for fashion than weather, so the buyer needs to know which she is buying. I rinsed the soles and toe tops of these boots in the sink, and the inner lining got soaked, so I wouldn't recommend walking through puddles. Also, some stiching is a little loose in the toe. They are good for kicking around, but I wouldn't count on them for harsh cold wet winter weather. Hope they last.
