"Okay, so I’m a little bit winter boot obsessive because I live in the Tetons - winter weather a lot like Canada - very cold, very snowy, for many, many months. I’ve been looking for the right winter boot for 3 years, since my 30-year-old beloved Sorels finally bit the dust. I’ve bought and tried on many that didn’t quite fit the bill, but now that I’ve found these, I’m done. They’re perfect. Footbed really comfortable, with good cushion and arch support; plenty warm in temps below zero; excellent grip on snow and ice. All that and, gosh darn it, they’re also cute! My search is over. I love them. I bet you will, too."
