These boots are awesome! Not only are they waterproof, great in the snow & ice and keep your feet super warm, but really cute too! They are not clunky like some winter boots - they look great with leggings or jeans. They are perfect for the N.C sleet & snow but if you live where you get a ton of snow you may want a taller boot. They run about a half size small so go up. I love them!
