I bought these books because my friend recommended this brand but had a slightly different style. I was excited to receive them in time for a snowfall in my area. They are cute and the fabric was soft. The construction looks good and sturdy. They look like they will last for years and years. The laces tie up snugly to keep your feet warm and dry. The size is true. The width is good. The tread is great for snow and ice. The boots keep your feet warm. Having said that, I was so disappointed when I put them on and the ankle/heel support cut into my skin. Now I have to return the boots because they hurt too much to wear.
