These boots are really nice. I have winter boots that I wear for really cold days but I decided to wear these one day because they are easier to put on and they were so warm! If I wear them in anything above 30 degrees my feet are sweating. I love the soft fabric at the top so wearing them without high socks doesn't hurt. I would imagine that the fabric would also keep the back-splash that I always kick up in rain out of the boots too! I ordered my size (11) in wide because my feet tend to swell during the day and they fit perfect. I don't wear them for long periods of time but they are comfortable for the couple of hours that i do wear them. My only downside is that the traction is not very good.
