I bought these boots about a month ago, and I'm happy that I did. I was looking for something that was a little higher than my low cut casual Gore-Tex boots. With all of the rain that we have been experiencing, and the snow to soon be on the way this was a great choice for keeping dry. I walk at least four miles daily in these boots at work. They are extremely comfortable, almost as if they are walking shoes instead of boots. They also give the appearance of a dress shoe as well. My secret is no one has really noticed that I have these awesome Gore-Tex Wellington Boots underneath my khakis. Be comfortable and dry, get yourself a pair!
