Thank you for your feedback.
Boots are excellently made and I have already stepped into rain puddles to test them out and YES they are waterproof.
I love Amazon | Fit: As expected
When I was actually working and moving, the boots were light enough so as not to be an obstacle.

Product Description

High Blucher style, rigid rubber sole, ski strap shelf. These boots have an air pressure system for high altitudes and insulation, and are designed to keep feet comfortable at 20 below zero. | "Mickey Mouse Boot" is the nickname for the U.S. Army Cold Vapor Barrier Boots. Still in use in the Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System, these boots were designed for use for temperatures up to from 20 below zero. These boots are genuine U.S. Issue. | Originally designed and adopted around the Korean War, these boots offer a unique solution to water evaporation from the feet, the leading cause of frostbite and cold injury in winter. A layer of thick wool and felt is sandwiched between two layers of waterproof rubber, and compressed to make a thin, flexible, and completely watertight insulated barrier, unaffected by outside moisture or sweat moisture from the feet. | The high blucher design features a seamless shell design, direct molded sole, and a gusset fused to the main body along its whole length. You would have to step in water that completely covered the top of the boot before any liquid could get in, and even if this happened, the body temperature in the feet would quickly warm the water and prevent frostbite. This boot is designed to be worn with one thick pair of padded-sole socks, to be changed at least once daily, and offers unprecedented cold weather protection. Each pair also features an air pressure release valve, to be opened during high-altitude flight or climbing to allow air pressure between the layers to escape. | These boots are in new, unissued condition, and come right out of the manufacturer's box.

    I live in Alaska and work on an oilfield at the northern tip. These military style bunny boots are THE boot to get to keep your feet warm no matter what the conditions. They are all rubber and therefore waterproof. They are not fancy or have fur or anything lining the inside. I have found that the BEST way to ensure they stay warm if you're going to be working outside during extreme cold, is to "preheat them," which basically means throw them by the heater or use a blow dryer for a minute or so on the inside. They are so well insulated that if you put them on and they are a little cold on the inside, they will just keep being cold and you will hate them. Another tip I have is to get some parachute cord or something to put in place of the laces. The ones they come with I feel are too short. The boots are heavy, but not uncomfortable to wear. The traction is pretty decent on ice. Another thing to remember is to NEVER get diesel fuel on them! This will eat away at them and basically ruin them. Another thing you're going to want to know is that your feet will get hot and sweat and stink like a bastard! The boots are NOT breathable! So some sort of Dr.Scholls absorbent liner will help. I wear a size 8.5 work boot, and I have a size 8 of these bunny boots. They fit perfectly. They are pretty comfortable and also offer great ankle support. These boots are THE winter boot to get if you're going to be spending a lot of time outside. If you want the warmest boots and don't care about them being a bit heavy or not "fancy," I would pick these over any other winter boot. Highly recommended.

    I live in Wiaconsin,and enjoy ice fishing. After buying these boots it`s the first time my fishing was not shortened from cold feet.
    I would reccomend these to anyone who wants great comfort in very cold conditions.

    I live in the North West and the temperatures here can be quite harsh, especially in the late winter. Last year's winter was really cold and my toes were always like ice. I looked for a decent pair of boots and found these. This turned out to be one of the best purchases I have made as these are the warmest pair of boots I have ever owned. I also have a pair of 120 dollar Carhartts which are also equally awesome but do not hold a candle to these in terms of keeping my feet warm. Someone here posted a review saying to get a size or half size smaller than you normally wear and they were right. I am normally a 9.5 and I got a pair in size 9 and they turned out to be just right when I have wool socks on. Without the socks they were really big. Size 9 of these is like size 10 maybe 10.5 in normal size. Boots are excellently made and I have already stepped into rain puddles to test them out and YES they are waterproof. My only complaint about these boots is that the laces are mediocre. I have a suspicion that the original laces were replaced. The ones that came with these boots are "thin noodle" waxed laces, clearly not boot laces. The boot ears are designed for the thick mil style kevlar or bonded material boot laces. Just look at the holes. I ended up buying a pair of real boot laces instead of these POS shoelaces. Other then that, great boots and great value.

    These boots are BIG (and heavy). I wear size 9 and ordered that. I could have ordered size 8. I'm going to keep the boots and just wear extra socks but if you are considering them go down a full size.

    I'm a municipal employee and every winter (usually on the coldest days) we are guaranteed 2 or 3 water leaks that need to be dug up and repaired. These boots are the only answer. They are waterproof and extremely warm. Even if I step in deep water and the boots fill up, in a few minutes the water heats up to body temperature and it's like walking in warm soup until I get the repair done. Then I can empty them out, quickly dry them, throw on some new socks, and head back out. Wool lined boots would never allow for that.

    Pros:
    * Water-proof
    * Extremely warm
    * Great ankle support
    * Relatively thin profile, so they won't drag you down in deep snow and are thin enough to drive a car without catching pedals.
    * Solid construction. I can usually get two seasons of moderately heavy work out of one pair.
    * Cheap. $50 for a premium cold weather work boot that'll last me two years... No-brainer!

    Sorta cons:
    * Do not breath, but are easy to wash/scrub out since there's no wool or absorbant material.
    * The rubber where the shoe ends at your calf will rub and grab you, so wear extra long socks 2 or3 inches above the boot. I know some guys who cut a couple inches off the top of the boot, and that works for them too.
    * Shoelaces provided aren't the best IMHO, but you can swap those out.
    * Once they do get cold (only happens if I'm standing or sitting a very long time on the coldest of days), they are almost impossible to warm up without taking them off. That's the nature of good insulation I guess. As others have said, warm them up before you go out and they'll maintain that temperature in the bitterest of cold. I just set mine in front of the heat register every night.

    Past experience using these boots while stationed in Alaska prompted immediate purchase to face the upcoming cold winter in Michigan
