by fromCute but NOT FUNCTIONAL I live in the Northeast, and after shoveling snow for 20 minutes, my toes were starting to go numb. After being outside for an hour in 20 degree weather, my toes are currently in the painful process of thawing out. I purchased these to walk to and from work (~2 miles) and they are getting returned. I do not recommend these for anyone who wants to be outside longer than 15 minutes.

by fromCute but NOT FUNCTIONAL I purchased these to walk to and from work during the winter months. I live in the Northeast and it usually does not reach below 10 degrees. Since these are rated for -25, I definitely thought they would be warm enough. However, my toes went numb after 20min of shoveling during this weekend's snow storm. In addition, when I was trying the boots on at the store, the original ones had a defect (a string was unraveling). I've heard Sorel has gone down in quality since they transferred most of their assembly to other countries. I would not recommend these to anyone who wants to wear these for longer than 15min outside.

by fromCute but cold I live in MN and have owned Sorel's before. I bought these boots b/c they were cute and rated to -25 which I thought would be perfect for dog training. They are by far the coldest boots I've ever owned. I do not recommend these boots if you intend to be outside for more than 30 min. However, they are great for running around town and go well with my skirts.

by fromcute but not warm These boots are really cute and so warm around the leg but there is no sole and so my feet freeze from the bottom up. I work outside and need boots that will keep my feet warm for the whole day and these definitely do not do that. After about 2 hours of being outside I can feel my feet begin to freeze and after three hours I can't even feel my toes. I plan on taking them back- it hasn't even snowed yet and the weather has only been around 45 degrees so I wouldn't trust them in the snow either.

by fromCute and warm but so hard to break in! I bought these specifically for walking around the dog park, which is several acres of land that, of course, isn't shoveled. The height of the boot shaft is exactly what I wanted, but unfortunately they just don't fit well. This is my second season with them, and I chalked up the discomfort I felt last year to the breaking-in period. But even this season I feel like when I walk, the place where the boot bends in the back is about an inch higher than where my foot naturally bends when I'm walking. No matter how thick my socks are, I'm still getting blisters high up on the back of one or both of my heels. Because these were not cheap boots, I'm going to look for a thick insert to use in addition to the orthotics I already wear to see if I can raise my foot enough to align the natural bend in my foot with where the boot bends. I'll also try getting the laces really tight down by my ankle as another reviewer suggests. With no other reviews stating the same types of fit issues, I really hope these tactics will work. My husband will kill me if I tell him I need another pair of boots for the dog park!

by fromNot the best underfoot tread I'll say first off that I do like these boots. They look good, they're super waterproof, nice and tall for snowdrifts, and they keep my feet warm, but not *too* warm. I work on film sets, so there are days when I spend 12 hours outside, standing, in the winter. This is a rather extreme use of the boot, perhaps...but none the less I have found the following: - These boots make me SLIP. I dont ever feel comfortable walking on slick surfaces...they dont offer much grip on the bottom. - The SOLES of my feet get cold over time, even with good socks. Doesn't feel like there's much sole padding at all. - I have the hardest time getting my feet in and out of the lining. The boot fits well but its a mammoth effort to YANK my feet out of them without pulling the liner too. Sigh. I do look forward to wearing them again though, but this season I think I'll get a different pair of boots for work.

by fromnice boots I tested out my new boots in the recent 16-inch snowfall and slushiness here in Minnesota. They are nice and warm, dry, and comfortable. They don't have much arch support but I added an insert that works great. The sizing was a little off - I'm normally a 7.5-8 and was surprised to find that I wore a 6 in these.

by fromGreat Tall Boots for Deep Snow I had trouble getting these boots to fit since they don't come in half sizes. If your heel keeps slipping try putting a shoe insert/orthodic in the boot. I put an over the counter 3/4 insert in and my boots fit much better now. One last tip, make sure your feet are warm before you put the boots on.
