I bought these boots for work and the snow. I wanted something that didn't get my feet wet and also protected my feet from injuries I have gotten at work (stepping on nails, machinery hitting my feet, etc). I'm glad to say that these boots are invincible lol my feet have not gotten wet OR injured because of these boots. My feet are warm but not sweaty when my day ends (I work approximately 10-14 hours daily). I ALWAYS receive compliments when wearing these.
They are a bit heavy, but it's understandable since they are heavy duty.
