I bought these Shackleford's about a year ago. I wait to write a review because there isn't much to be said before you get them broke in and put thru a time period. I'm happy to report that these boots truly impress me. I live in Michigan and we know winters, my feet have not been cold once, and I always team them up with a thick pair of socks for added comfort and warmth. I'd suggest ordering a size up if you do the same, otherwise a half should be spot on. Quality-wise, no problems. I use them for work, and recently took them to the Sault 500 Snowmobile races in the U.P. Michigan, a weekend to challenge them. Extremely cold sub zero days and nights, but my feet were fine. Nuff said, it's a good choice.

Purchased this right before the historic snow, ice and cold weather we've had here in Boston (90 inches of snow in a month!) and these boots really saved me. They're so incredibly warm, waterproof (through large piles of snow) and get great traction even on ice and slush. They have the added bonus of being stylish enough to earn compliments as well!

So far, so good. Got these at Christmas for my husband's frozen toes. He loves them and says he's never had warmer feet. The booties are holding up. Last year I bought a pair in the upgrade model and they started ripping out after a day or two. So back they went. But these are doing fine, and he's careful not to pull them by the top casing for the drawstring, as that appears to have been the weak point in earlier incarnations of this slipper. Now he's telling me to get a pair for my cold toes!

These are very cute, however, the shoe insert causes them to be too small. I am a 7½ and I ordered an 8 and my toes butted up against edge of insert. I am sending them back. I was hoping to find some cute boots for my upcoming ski trip. I think the entire brand will fit the way that I described.

Very comfortable and cozy and warm but mine tore in the first week of wearing them. I liked them enough to keep wearing them but the anti-slip grips on the bottom wore down in another few weeks. Not durable, lasted about 1 month.

First, I typically wear a size 14 and often in a wide size. The size 14's were perfect and there is ample room in the toe box. Would highly recommend them.

I ordered this item for myself at the beginning of winter season here in Michigan. After wearing these slippers all winter I am giving them five stars. They are easy to slip on and off (I ordered a large so that they would fit with my thick wool socks and they do. My shoe size is about an 8½). They keep my feet warm (although I do wear wool socks) and I love the look! The only improvement I would suggest is to make the tread on the bottom more durable as that wears off pretty quickly. Still I have pergo flooring and I have not slipped yet but I do have to be mindful. Oh and I have two golden retrievers and no dog hair sticks to these slippers so that is a plus!

I bought these for my boyfriend who had finally worn out his 20 year old duck boots. He normally wears an 11.5-12 so we bought the 12's. He was initially worried they were too small and he wouldn't be able to wear his thick wool socks with them; however, he soon learned there was no need. Wearing only normal athletic socks he had waded around in 3 feet of snow for over 2 hours and exclaimed, "my feet are nice and toasty dry!" They are well worth the money.

I spend a lot of my free time hiking and photographing in places that must not only keep my feet dry, but also must withstand the rigors of bushwhacking through dense tangles of all sorts of under stories, including lots of thorny vines. I climb over and under fallen trees, wade through creeks bottomed with slippery stones and rocks, tromp through sand, gravel mud, wet and slippery clay deposits, snow and ice and just about every kind of surface you'd find out there in nature. For more than 20 years of this kind of use, I have been wearing a pair of Baffin rubber boots. They are still good, but are showing signs of wear and I suspect they will spring a few leaks sometime soon. Unfortunately, Baffin no longer makes the boots I bought 20 + years ago, so I purchased these with the hope that they would do as well. I gave my new Baffins a good work out over the past few days and I am happy to report that, so far, they are not only as good, but better in at least 2 ways: 1: The neoprene uppers are more comfortable and allow me to tuck in my pants more easily. 2: the lugs on the bottom do not collect and hold nearly as much mud and debris...and what little they do collect can be cleaned off very easily. This alone makes them great for me. The Baffin Meltwater are very well built; sturdy, waterproof and comfortable. Easy to put on and take off too. Keepers for sure! Will they last 20 years like my old ones? Can't say for sure yet, but I have a feeling they will.

Like another Baffin snowboot I tried, these were a full size smaller and impossible for me to put on with even a silk liner sock.

I ordered a full size larger than what I normally wear in athletic wear, and half a size larger than eccos waterproof footwear I have worn for 17 years. These were much too small. Having not worn snow or warm weather boots since departing Seattle in 2000 I expected following other reviewers advice and selecting a larger size would work. Even with just silk liners there was no way to put these boots on my feet.

These boots do feel as if they'd be super warm, but the liner has an odd squishy feeling. The boot shaft is quite wide, which makes getting them on and off very easy, but also makes them look pretty clunky. I'm going to continue my search for warm, attractive snow boots.

These are the warmest boots I've ever owned! I'm in NE Ohio and low temperatures have reached -15 this year. Every time I go outside - I'm thankful for these boots! I care for three horses and these boots keep my feet toasty, dry and more than comfortable in some of the harshest winter temperatures this area has ever seen!

While my wife claims to like these booties I bought for her, she rarely wears them. They are not really useful for outside wear at this time as we have a lot of snow and ice outdoors. Indoors she prefers her sheepskin booties from LL Bean.

I took these backpacking for the first wear and while the shoes are warm as advertised, they are obviously bulky in size and they ripped on the bottom from catching on a stick. Would be fine for very light use, but would not recommend for the outdoors.

So comfortable and warm. The perfect shoe for lounging around on cold days, running outside for firewood, to get the mail or a quick trip to the corner store.

I bought these slippers to wear i doors at a week long silent meditation retreat. So far they are perfect for the job.

The boots are extremely warm and comfortable. The price cannot be beat. I bought a pair for my wife and me for a trip north.

I normally wear a woman's size 10 and ordered a Men's size 9. Needed a warm boot for ice fishing. The liner was snug against my toes with regular every day thickness socks on but the boot still seemed to have room between the liner and boot shell. Returned these boots and got the Baffin Selkirk which are nice and toasty while ice fishing!! They are also a lot lighter than the Baffin even though they are a bigger boot.

First, the boot is dark gray/almost black, not brown as it looks in the picture. Anyways the color isn't important to me. I bought this boot JUST IN TIME for this year's Boston winter. It's been amazing walking through slush, ice, snow, huge puddles, over snowbanks, through tunnels, shoveling 4 feet of snow, climbing over chunks of ice. The only bad thing is the calf is very wide so if you are wearing skinny pants snow might go into your boot if you (like me) need to stand in two feet of snow to shovel out your car three times in three weeks. Solved that issue by wearing thicker pants that I could bunch up around my calf to create a seal to keep out the snow. They are comfy to walk in. I regularly walk a mile to the train to get to work and they are comfortable. The shape of the sole promotes good foot rocking movement while walking which makes up for the fact that they are kind of heavy. Highly recommended for warmth, dryness, and comfort.

I bought these for my sister in KS who has poor leg circulation. She says they keep her feet toasty warm even in below freezing temps, and are extremely comfortable.
