I have only had these boots for a few weeks now, but I could imediatly tell that they will be with me for many years to come. They are amazingly comfortable right out of the box. I have size thirteen feet and it can be rather dificult to purchase shoes online, but these fit amazingly well. The traction is great on snow aswell as ice, and the waterproof rating is standing true to its promise. Overall, I would recomend this product to anyone who wants or needs a great boot for the mountains.
