I live in Minnesota where it's not unusual for us to see 40-50 below wind chills in the winter. Exposed skin freezes in a matter of minutes. We aren't about fashion....we are about keeping our skin, and our fingers and toes. I already have my $125 boots for times when I need to be outside for longer than just a few minutes, and are specifically made to handle these terrible temps. I was specifically looking for some fashionable boots to wear from my house to the car, and then the car to the office (about 2 minutes time). We have a lot of snow packed streets and sidewalks here and I was looking for a boot that would also provide traction on the snow and ice. These boots are fashionable, warm enough for quick trips from warm place to warm place, and provide the traction I was seeking. They seem durable, and time will tell. They are very comfortable and a good value for the money. If you are looking for long-term protection from the cold, you really ought to invest in the expensive boots specifically made for your weather challenges. I've lived here my whole life and have tried the cheaper boots, like these, but they really don't compare and don't provide the protection you need. I went to the store first to look at these boots, but they didn't have my size. Therefore I ordered them on-line. They came right to my house for only $0.97 shipping cost, and arrived in a reasonable time.
