pretty much love 'em!
After surviving a few winters sharing a pair of 10-year old sorels with my mom that was so worn the bottom of the boots were smooth (although they were still warm!) I buckled and bought my own pair. I knew from the moment I saw them that I wanted the houndstooth pattern. So far I've trudged around in them through two different snow-dumping storm and the aftermath and have been very delighted with my new boots. Get lots of compliments on them. I sought this pair out specifically because I wanted something I could wear all day at work too. (I work at a gear shop and a coffee shop). My only slight disappointment was that I wish they were a little taller, but so far I haven't had snow down my boot when shoveling two feet of snow or going snowshoeing. Definitely recommend the tivolis!
