This boot is really comfy. Great to pull on when it's time to get more wood for the fire, but just don't drop any wood on them. I cut the leather on the first trip to my wood pile. Haven't had any problems with the sole as others have mentioned. I used these all winter and even did some light hiking in them. I walked through icy streams and my feet stayed warm and dry. Snoseal. They are bigger than the normal blundstones but relatively low profile compared to real snow boots. I know of no other boot at this price like these. I've tried lots of different boots from sorel, merrel and ugh and these are the best, but they are not perfect.
