The boots are a little on the stiff side. There is a pressure point on the outside front of the boot right where it bends. It almost gave me a blister the first time I wore them. Hopefully it goes away as the boot breaks in. Weather resistant does'nt mean water proof, but they are much better to run around in the snow than my regular DVS shoes. Feet were much warmer and drier. Other wise I love the boot, love the classic style.
