I have been wearing these boots none stop since I have had them, outstanding. I have been living in Russia and the boots are perfect for any occasion: work, shopping, hiking, etc… Wear them with a pair of thermal socks and you are set even in below zero conditions. Think of them as “three-in-one” shoe system. Warm weather and all you need is a thin layered sock, medium/heavy for cold to coldest temperatures. They are light weight, comfortable, and waterproof. Buy two if you have the means, keep one for casual wear, and one for “duty”. They fit true to size.
