These are remarkably well made boots and very very warm! I typically avoid cold climates nowadays, having been raised on cold boats in the UK. Spending winter in DC and hiking on the cards I decided that the best was required and these are it. In the short period of time that I have had these they've been in hard rain sub-zero temperatures, long bike rides and hikes + my lab boots! My feet have been so toasty that the rest of my body feels it. Furthermore, they are very well made. My ankles needed a couple of bandaids initially, but that's normal. Since the first day I wore these perfect strangers call out to complementary comment on these amazing boots, which does wonders for one's self esteem when you're pushing 50 ;)
If you're unsure, I suggest calling the customer service people as they are friendly and accommodating. Now, of course, I want to buy lots more items from Overland, which I will, it's the indecision that's the issue 😄 Love yourself with these highly durable, practical, and beautiful boots.
