I ordered these for my trip to Alaska for the Iditarod. They walk like ski boots. Kinda clunky. The upside was there was plenty of room for layers of socks. However, with 3 layers of socks my feet got cold after an hour outside. I think I should have had feet warmers but these are rated for -25 so i didn't think warmth should have been an issue and it was. Good for getting to and from places but not long exposure of cold.
