Honestly, this boot just f-ing rocks. I bought my first pair at a Fleet Farm in Wisconsin for my move up to Alaska. They became my everyday boot for the entire year and a half that I was there. I love the height to them and they just hug my feet and don't let go. Great tread and the warmth is awesome. Definitely not for warm or even spring weather as your feet will sweat. But for a solid pair of winter boots that are legitimately waterproof... this is it. After about 2 years of almost daily wear I finally broke down and bought another pair. The same exact model on clearance. I see they have a new design with a few tweeks but in essence it looks to be the same boot. True to size. For this price you are not going to get a better cold weather boot. Columbia got it right with these. I'm considering stockpiling just in case they ever discontinue this product. It's that good. Just buy it.
