Use: Clearing Ice and Snow. Backup Survival Boots for the Mountains during Winter.
Break-in Period: Umm....bout' 10 seconds tops...

This is a survival boot. Not a walk to the park, or waltz around the shops when it's just below freezing. I mean, DUH..look at the design. Designed for door to door, or driving across town to the friend's house, snow sledding for miles or as backup boots whilst driving an hour to work when it's 20 below.
They are heavy. You get used to it, but, they are heavy. Once again..let's stress survival. When the penguins are cold, these are the bad boys to have on. Comfortable like all Sorels, great grip on ice and amazingly warm.
Style wise? Ha...I've read reviews where both men and women didn't like the "Look". Well, those will be the same people who get caught in a blizzard with a pair of boat shoes and a T-Shirt on. Intelligence is not always at the forefront.
I rate them a 5 star, for what they were designed for. The same boots are commonly seen around McMurdo Sound ( South -Arctic ) and Alaskan Villages at the top of the Planet.
No sequins, no fancy lace and no posers.
I use mine in Northern AZ when it snows and I have to clear snow and ice outside. I don't wear them to the shops, and I take them into the mountains as backups should I get caught out overnight. Hard to walk with frozen toes. Your call...
