I bought this boot back in October for the chillier fall and sloppy winter weather and quickly fell in love with them. Right out of the box I was very happy with the fit and comfort as they stay on nice and secure with all day comfort. There was no break-in period with these boots as I never had sore feet nor blisters from wearing them 10 plus hours a day. No slipping but instead solid footing on just about any surface I travel on. These are a great boot with no laces or zipper- they just slip on instantly to take Adventure Dog on his daily walks in any kind of weather. Even with walking in deeper snow. I have not had a problem with snow leaking down the shaft of the boot; my feet have stayed very warm and dry in all conditions / temperatures. Even wearing them indoors in my office, my feet still stay very comfortable with no over heating. It would make a great boot to wear at a climbing crag when you switch from climbing to belaying since you would have secure footing for belaying and able to quickly change back into a climbing shoe. I would also find it a great boot to wear around a campsite that would keep your feet warm and dry with easy on-and-off as you went in and out of the tent.

All Weather Chelsea Boot. It features the same versatile styling philosophy — in boot form — so you can wear it anywhere a Chelsea boot is appropriate, with features rugged enough to take on any terrain (like the durable suede upper and beefy, slip-resistant rubber outsole). We keep it comfy, too, thanks to the brushed polyester knit lining and pillowy cushioned footbed.
