I'm in Montreal and we get a lot of snow, very cold temperatures and it gets very wet when the snow melts. If you're looking for boots to keep your feet warm, dry, comfortable when walking long distance and on icy areas and STYLE, you found the right boots. The bad thing that happened was that after a month getting my boots the zipper on my left side broke. I understand the boots come with one year warranty, I will contact customer service and see what are they going to do about my broken zipper. I decided to spend more money so I will have a nice winter for my feet but the broken zipper sometimes made it uncomfortable.
