I bought these shoes to have another pair of closed toe shoes that were not tennis shoes that I could wear everyday to school and keep my feet warm. The current tennis shoes I own aren't bad, but on particularly cold days, my toes threaten to fall off. I've been wearing these shoes pretty much everyday, and I can definitely say my toes are very warm, they hold up to all my walking through grass and gravel, and they are so comfortable. I wear them with no socks, and they don't smell! There is one bad thing about the shoes, but I think it is just with all fur-lined shoes. I didn't know about this, so I want to let others know. I wear these shoes for hours at a time, and I do a lot of walking on campus to get to and from my car and between buildings, so the fur gets hard and matted after a few days. If I keep wearing them after the fur has matted, there will be a smell that doesn't go away until I wipe the inside clean and brush out the fur with a pet brush. I have to take about 20-30 minutes every week to do this. Other than that, I feel like this is a great buy, and I don't regret it at all. If you're looking for a comfy, warm, and casual shoes, look no further!!
