These boots have been great since I bought them eight months ago for the winter so I got to wear them for an entire snow season. They are really comfortable. I replaced the factory insoles with custom orthotics for my planar fasciatis and they fit great. They are really comfortable and give great arch support which is what I need. I stepped in water a few times and my feet were bone dry. The gore tex works well. They look great after one seasons use so i expect them to last a long time.
I work outside for 10+ hours in construction and it gets cold here in Vermont. I bought these because they are a insulated boot. Let me tell you that the insulation really works down to 0 degrees. The funny thing is that my feet will be warm but my legs and body will get cold. I highly recommend these if you're working in cold weather.
These are definitely the best cold weather boots I've had. I work outside in sometimes sub zero temps and my feet are still toasty. The gore tex in these boots really works well. They are pricey but most of the gore tex boots run in this range.
Can't say enough about how happy I am with these boots. I have flat feet and the footbed gives great support in the arches. This makes it very comfortable for long walks and minimizes arch pain. Gore tex works great too.
