I looooove these boots! They are warm, comfortable, light and great foot support! I have high arches and it's hard to find a shoes with support! These boots have it all! I am NOT a winter boot person, and that's hard living in the country in good ol Canada! Better get a timmies to keep you warm! I find winter boots are klunky heavily boots to wear all day at school. Until I found these! They are Awsome! Best boots and shoe in general I have ever bought! everyone needs a pair of these! Merrell you have perfected the winter boot!!! Keep on making wonderful shoes and boots! Should I spray my boots with anything to keep them looking new? Protecting them from salt stains somehow?! Please let me know! I love your boots!
