These boots are amply named---very warm, even when the temperature falls below freezing and wet/snowy condit ions are present. Thick, solid, durable--kept my feet warm and dry even when worn for over 4 hours after an unexpected storm that rapidly changed from rain to snow. The material is thick, yet it is lightweight enough that I can wear them for a full day without them becoming "too heavy" and tiring my legs. The leather is quality enough so that they still look stylish with jeans or every day clothing--something I have always had difficulty finding in boots before. Overall---great boots--would recommend them to anyone looking for quality boots at a reasonable price.
