"BUY THESE BOOTS AND THANK ME LATER... no seriously, I like thank you notes."
These are by far the BEST boots $$ can buy. They are perfect for fall/winter walks in Nome, Alaska when it's 22 degrees...above or below zero. The side zipper is my favorite. Your feet stay nice and warm-- but not sticky hot. I may get a pair for my sister, if she's good this Christmas.
I got these boots in purple. They are super comfortable and have been great for long adventures in the German winter. My toes have yet to become wet while wearing them, however I would recommend wearing a good pair of socks like the Smart wool, to keep the toes a little warmer. So happy I got them.
