I keep my piggys toasty in the frigid winters of Michigan with these good looking bad boys. Water and snow are afraid of these molly whoppers that they slide right off. Highly recommended for a good long term boot for the avid outdoors man. The liner can come out to be washed and dried which is nice and don't worry they aren't those annoying liners that slide out every time you take your boot off. These are the real deal. Plus I heard Bradley Cooper has the same pair so chicks dig that.
