I've owned these shoes now for a full season in a snowy northern New England environment. I dress business casual for work and these shoes are worn 90% of the days from December through March. They hold up well (after a year) and are as comfortable as my moccasin slippers (seriously). They keep my feet dry and warm (but not too warm)on snowy and rainy days and when the temps are very cold. They hold up well to road salt and mud and people often comment on the appearance and my use of "such a nice shoe on a day like this." I'm not one to write reviews, but felt I had to since I wish someone had told me about them sooner.
