Not as warm as the old style
on November 7, 2011
I have worn Sierra Designs down booties for at least the last 5 years now. I live in a basement apartment in Chicago so the floors are like ice. The old 'Men's' style booties are comfy and thick. With a pair of polar fleece socks they actually keep my feet warm.
I got these booties because they are a nice color(radish) and because they come up higher on the calf. I'm always joking that I'm going to put on a down suit in November and not take it off again until April so a couple extra inches in height seemed like a great idea. The problem is that they are not nearly as thick as the other style. They look slightly less goofy on but if my feet aren't warm then I just don't care.
I'm sending these back and getting a pair of the men's style booties that I know are reliably warm.
