I bought these in brown size 8 (they're true to size) due to the great reviews here. I was still skeptical on how good they would be due to the low price but was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. Visually-speaking, they are comparable to some of the EMU brands in my opinion. The pictures don't show it, but the lining is a nice, thick tufted fleece inside (similar to faux wool). Super warm, the tread is thick and has pretty good traction and the faux suede looks really good. These boots are mid-calf height. The soles are flat and don't have much cushion for arch support. A good warm winter boot but not for long-distance walking. Overall, and great value for the price. Honestly, it could cost a little more and still be worth it.
