Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These boots are great! They run a little big, I am usually between a 10 and 11 and luckily these fit great in a 10. They are a bit wide, as one might expect with winter boots. I have very thin ankles and heels so there is some extra fabric, but nothing some inserts and large socks wont fill. There is no real arch support so if you require some as I do you will need to throw some dr scholls in. The leg portion comes up quite high. I am 5'10" and it comes just above the larger part of my calf. I am also a runner so my calfs are a bit bigger than your average lady, but these have a ton of room and are fully adjustable so there almost cannot be a problem for any calf size. Good in the snow, slush can be risky as they are not rubber, but the thick sole and the leather band make them fine in regular urban and suburban conditions. Overall these boots are fantastically warm, they look super cool so I don't look as odd wearing them around my freezing office on colder days, and they are comfy too.
