Love at first wear.
I didn't know if I needed booties. Why not just put on some extra socks at the campsite, or wear my ski boot liners when I need to "step outside" of the snowcave? Well nothing compares to the incredible warmth your feet encounter inside these things, and the rubber soles mean you can grippily and dryly make the trek to any snowy lou. Once you use them, you won't ever go back to the barbaric past you came from.
