After much research, I finally settled on these boots. Solid, sturdy, well made, practical. Everything I want in a snow boot. The fit seems true to size. I haven't tried them in the snow yet, but I anticipate they'll work well. The only downside I can tell so far is that the boots are fairly hard and firm on the inside and not so soft and comfy, but I would imagine a nice pair of comfortable socks would remedy this. All in all, I'd recommend.
These boots are amazingly toasty warm and fantastic tread/soles. And the insoles are really nice and high-arch. Only problem with the boot is, to support the orthotic arches, you need firm sidewalls up to the ankle at least on the inner ankle, and these are very soft/unfirm. Fantastic construction otherwise.
Liked the look and feel however the zipper kept coming down every 30 minutes while wearing the shoe Shoe and so I had to return them. May try a different pair in the future
I looked at several types of boots before purchasing these and I am so happy with these. We went on a 3 mile hike in the snow and my feet were comfortable, warm and dry.
