This is the second pair of these boots I've had to buy within a year!! And not due to any fault of the manufacturer. Just due to my brain dead neighbour who, due to an errant cigarette butt, burnt my house down!! So with the change of season upon us, ordering a new pair was a priority. I have never had a pair of winter boots that were as warm and comfortable as these! And I commend Merrel on their diligent and timely manner in which they were received. Would I reccommend these to any interested parties...absolutely!!!
