These boots are a great option for lots of different situations. They are dressy enough for my office with a pair of casual dress pants and a nice shirt or they can be casual enough for jeans and a sweatshirt. They have proven to be waterproof and very warm, almost too warm. The traction is amazing. The sizing is true and these are very, very comfortable. My only complaint is that in some light, the brown color can take a purple hue. I'm hoping that they will fade and that will go away over time. But it is not stopping me from wearing them. I highly recommend if you're looking for a 'dressy' yet very functional boot.
