I bought these boots thinking they will do throughout the winter, but WOW i love them. Extremely comfy and extremely warm. They are true to their size, but since my feet swell slightly i bought the next size up. I don't think they will be waterproof to the max, like slushy ice/snow, if your in and out of your car shopping, generally out and about these will be perfect. Warm, trendy, comfy and at a good price at that.
