I was in the Rockford Shoe Outlet seeking new shoes for wet wintery weather. The wonderful lady led me to the innsbruck saying that her husban has a pair and loves them and he wants to wear them year round cause they are so comfortable. She takes them away from him after winter. She was so nice that I bought a pair. I couldn;t be happier. I live in SE Wisconsin and cannot say enough about the waterproofing, the comfort and the warmth. I wear them while plowing snow on the garden tractor and they are as warm as any boot I own. They alwo take a beating, are comfortable and stylish I wear them to work in the office in Chicago. VERY COMFORTABLE. I like them so much I am seeking a second pair before they change styles and can't be found any more. They are well worth the price - something I have not paid such a price for shoes before, but well, when you've got it, you've got it. Well worth buying and wearing.
