With a nice soft liner keeping my toes warm at 7am in -20 degree weather in the depths of Ann Arbor, Michigan, these boots are more than I had expected. The high-top style keeps snow out and the liner and the aggressive traction makes it comfortable to walk in confidently. They are somewhat stylish with jeans, keeping you from having to change out of them once you get to work, these cozy boots are perfect for freezing to subfreezing temperatures. I would suggest to those who need boots in temperatures between 20 to -20. If anything above, this boot is too warm; anything below, go for something greater than 200 grams of Thinsulate.
