I've had these shoes for a couple months and I've been very impressed. They have a really short break in period and at the end of the day I'm still yet to have sore feet. The water proofing works pretty well- I've had semi-wet feet going through snow before, but they do dry really quickly so it's not that big of an issue to me. They aren't insulated much but I've been snowshoeing in these in about 10 degrees with some thick wool socks and my feet were fine, they also stayed completely dry with snowshoes. I very much recommend these guys.
