I've owned these boots for years, but they have not been used except once or twice each winter to shovel the sidewalk. They completely disintegrated on me the other day.


  • Warm
  • Waterproof


  • Poor workmanship

I bought these boots new some time ago and loved them. Fit and comfort were acceptable although support was somewhat lacking. Water resistance was exceptional and they were warm — almost too much so. Traction was moderate (you could still slip on a slick surface).

Where they really fail in the durability and construction department. The boots, which I have owned for over 5 years, have received minimal wear (almost new). The other day I ventured outside and the uppers cracked and became completely detached.

Extremely disappointed in this gear.
