"these are my favorite rubber boots. they're well made, they go with everything, and the footbed is super comfortable. i feel like i have extra spring in my step. plus, the leather laces are just a great touch and set them apart from other high-end boots. the boot is molded from one piece of rubber, so absolutely no water seeps in. and unlike other lace-up brands, the grommets are real, not glued on, so they'll stay put. the felted lining makes them cozy to step into. i will be living in these next fall/winter."
