I bought these boots as a warmer option than my everyday boots in hopes they would be good for some winter hiking, but still be attractive enough to wear around town. I think the quality is nice, and the sole is very rugged and can traverse snow, ice, mud, and dirt without issue. They are not waterproof, but will resist water for a little while. I am a pretty standard 8.5 shoe size, and ordered up to a 9 - and yet they feel HUGE on me. I intend to buy a waterproof liner to make up for both the size and the inability to completely resist water. Also, they are fairly warm, but if the temperature falls below freezing I recommend either doubling up on socks or wearing a nice, thick sock to make sure your toes don't freeze to death. Overall, a decent item for the low price, and easily customizable to your needs - especially with the option to make them into a shorter boots thanks to the snaps.
