Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm, Comfy, Stylish I did not have a good "snow boot" and wanted to try one of these waterproof "duck boot" styles. These boots have the same popular duckboot look, so I figured if REI trusts them, I can give them a shot. The boots are incredibly comfortable to both stand in (using at work) and for walking around in. The inside feels like a pillow and is VERY warm. My wife had a pair of duck boots from the more well known company, and while we were standing around in the snow her feet started freezing. Mine were sweating. Also they go great with most outfits and different types of pants. You can wear business casual, or t shirt and jeans with no problem. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping my feet warm and dry! I needed a comfortable relatively lightweight boot for keeping me warm and dry in the snow during the Polar Vortex back East. I am very pleased with these boots. I debated for a while between these boots and the Caribous, knowing I was headed for some seriously cold and wet conditions. I decided on the Cheyennes because I live in Portland and will not always have need for a heavy sub zero snow boot. The Cheyennes are extremely comfortable and with a good pair of socks totally cozy and dry. I had to buy 1 size larger because my size wasn't in stock, yet with an extra pair of insoles these boots work great for me. They are fantastic boots for foul weather. Everything else may freeze, but I know my feet will be toasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain boots I was hesitant to buy rain boots, as I had "survived" previous rainy winters (94 and 97) relying on my usual work shoes( think:penny loafers). However, given the distances I need to walk from my car to classroom and the lack of good drainage at the school at which I teach, I gave in. So far, I have been very happy with how dry and warm they keep my feet and have even taken to wearing them when it's cold and I have outdoor chores to complete. As always, REI is a fine business to support, as the staff are helpful and the store is always well-kept.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable boot. I wore these boots through winter last year and intend to wear them again this winter, the next, and so on until they fall apart. Because they're well constructed, I don't expect they'll fall apart any time soon. These boots are warm: I wore them on a 4-day backpacking trip in the Smokies last February, and temps were in the teens (also wearing heavy-weight wool socks and liners). I also wore them through the whole polar vortex fiasco (-14 degrees), and avoided frostbite. Sorel has them rated to -23 degrees fahrenheit, which, I think, is slightly exaggerated. You might not lose a foot at that temperature, but I don't think you'll have warm feet. The soles are somewhat thin, so the boots are colder than they should be when you're standing in snow. However, they aren't so thin that your feet are bothered by rocks, debri, or whatever. They fit true to me (size 11). Sorel claims they run small. Lastly, they aren't the best boot to hike in, but I've hiked in them a fair amount, and I have no complaints. I intend to wear them this January on 5-day hike on the AT, and I'm sure I'll be satisfied with they're performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots Great when it comes to waterproofing, but not as thermally capable as advertised

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for kneeling I've seen negative reviews of these cracking where the toe flexes. I can't kneel in these boots because they make a very sharp fold right over your toe, which probably explains that failure. These are very stiff uppers and are a lot of work to lace up snuggly; the tongue is thick and stiff, so lacing up has to pull against the heavy fold of leather over your foot. Might get better with time, but too much work and too slow to lace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Wanted For years, I've been looking for a "go-to" pair of boots for the cold, snow and slop that winter brings to the upper Midwest. I finally found what I was looking for in these boots. Rated to 30 below, they're waterproof, warm and have great traction. I have a bigger pair of Sorel's but they're pretty clunky. Whether I'm shopping, driving or just out in it, these boots fill the bill. The fit is roomy, like you expect in a pack boot, and I expect I'll have these until they wear out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Winter Boot! I've been wearing these boots during the recent mid-west snow storm which began on Sunday, January 5, 2014, in the St. Louis area. The boots are amazingly comfortable, provide good traction and have kept my feet dry; they are waterproof. This is my first pair of Sorel Boots and I was so impressed by the performance and quality, that I bought a pair of Sorel Ladies Boots for a good friend of mine as a Christmas present. I highly recommend Sorel boots...totally worth it.

Are these warm enough and comfortable for all day in Yellowstone in February? Temps to -25F.

Asked by: Runner33
The Cheyanne Lace Full Grain Boots are rated to -25° Fahrenheit so they are warm enough for the temperatures you will be wearing them in.

Do these run small? I usually wear a size 9.5 dress shoe. What size should I get in these boots?

Asked by: dpederson
These boots do run true to size. However, we do recommend ordering a half size up from your normal shoe size if you will be wearing thicker socks.
