Rated5out of5byclammyfromWould marry these bootsI was so pleasantly surprised by these boots because they replaced a gift pair of Merrell's that looked odd and were so poorly engineered that getting feet inside was abrasive agony. They were quickly returned. These, on the other hand, slide on like butter, fit perfectly (I'm an 8), are as comfortable as slippers, and look pretty cool (I'm not young). I especially like the mid-calf height. They make me wish I had more occasions on which to wear them (I work at home), but now I'm inspired to seek a more exciting life thanks to these excellent boots.

Rated5out of5bygnarlykarlyfromThe Pacific Northwest -- as a boot!I am a graphic designer by morning, and outdoor enthusiast by night. Some days I'll literally go straight from work in corporation central to a rainy scramble along Seattle's rocky shores. I needed boots that could do it all -- look stylish, treat my feet like royalty & keep me protected from the elements.
This is that boot. The moment I put them on, all my prayers were answered. Warm, dry, comfortable, versatile -- an immediate solution to my needs. Plus I'd just bought Merrell's Barefoot Life Frost Glove Winter Boots the winter before, so it made for a seamless transition with no rubbing or blisters.
And YES - they are definitely waterproof. I intentionally walked through some gnarly puddles and did some muddy yard work in them to test them out.
Highly recommend these boots for work, play, and everywhere in between!

Rated5out of5bySquidneyfromI would (and have) bought these again!This is my fourth pair of these boots. Each pair lasts about 2 years for me- but I wear them year-round and almost daily, and I'm pretty rough on my shoes! The zipper does wear out... But I obviously like them enough to keep buying them. This season I bought two, my first non-black pair in Drizzle- I love the contrast. Great boots!!

Rated3out of5byCheeedlefromLoved these boots but not made well.I loved these boots but after having to take them back twice for the same reason I am done with them. The first time I had them a year before the button snapped off. I returned them less than a month ago and REI aloud me to exchange them for the same pair. Three weeks later and I find myself in the same situation, button gone and had to be returned yet again. This time I chose a different boot. The only other thing I was not impressed with was the traction. I live in a snowy and icy environment and these boots are made for holding up to inclement weather but the traction is almost non existent. I was always worried about slipping. Other than those two issues they were good boots. Sad to not have them anymore.

Rated5out of5byMama ClairefromA Great SurpriseVery comfortable especially walking long distances. I got these boots because I was going to a snowy, urban climate. They looked great and feel great.

Rated5out of5bySTLRunner26fromperfect boots for work or playPurchased these boots for an upcoming trip to Iceland. Searched quite a bit for a waterproof boot that would be stylish to wear day or night on the trip. I absolutely LOVE these boots. Comfortable right out of the box. I've worn with jeans to a concert and with a dress to work. As far as the previous reviews about the buttons falling off, this was a concern for me and I can certainly see this happening. I pull on the tops of the boots to put them on (same as my cowboy boots) and I find myself grasping where the buttons are. After this is done repeatedly, I can see them wearing loose. I've tried to pay attention to this to extend the life of the buttons.

Rated2out of5byIloveclothesfromFell apartInitially I loved these boots, but the buttons fell off and the zipper broke. Merrell did not cover these things under their warranty. This is the second pair of Merrell's that have fallen apart on me (and I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary--just normal, everyday stuff)
Luckily, REI's customer service is much better than Merrell's, and was able to replace them with another brand of boots. Thanks REI!
