I thought I was getting a nicely insulated boot - either quilted or 'sorel-style' insulation. In looking back at the description, it is vague about what insulation they have. What they turned out to be is a very thinly insulated shell. I hope the 'thinsulate' is warmer than it looks/feels. I will likely have to wear them with multiple pairs of socks. I will recommend these because they look nice and functional and have some good qualities - waterproof, nice sole, decent upper, good laces - but if you are looking for a nice thickly insulated winter boot, this may not be it.
We ordered size 9, and it seems true to size.

I got a pair (and returned them) because the size 12's were way to large for my 11.5 feet. (The salesperson said that she was told they ran true to size, so order up a 1/2 size.) The boots didn't have a temperature rating with them, but the insulation seemed really thin to me, so I didn't try a size 11. Instead I ordered a set of Khombu Summits. Admittedly, the insulation on them didn't seem much thicker even though they are rated to -40 degrees (yeah, right). Anyway, wearing 2 pairs of thick socks might address the fit and warmth problem simultaneously. They did seem like they were well built. Unfortunately, my experience in actually wearing them outside in the cold is nil - just my impressions from wearing them in the house before sending them back.
