Beautiful, comfortable boots. That said, they are more appropriate for a 16" calf than my 13" one. When I pulled the laces snug on my calf there was 2-3 extra inches bunched up and no amount of rearranging could make them look like they fit. Too bad, back they go.

Recently took these on a fishing trip to Alaska. They did just fine. As other reviewers have noted, they do run extremely large. I wear a 9, ordered an 8, and had to return it for a 7. Even the 7 is a bit loose. The boots are good looking - even better than in the photos.

I have not had a chance to try these Baffin Impacts 08 out yet as I purchased them during warm weather. But they do feel tight around my foot. I am 8 1/2 and ordered a 9 and felt tight. Other reviews said they loosen up after wear...we will see. As far as warmth, not sure. They seem like they would be warm. Haven't worn them around with wool socks. They do come up pretty high up my calf. Overall looks like great boots. Hope they perform as well as they look.

If you want something inexpensive and lightweight, this is the boot for you, but I found it much less comfortable than the Hunter boots.

Good foul weather booties. Snappy in red, and the tabs help pull them on. Probably fry your foot in warmer rain weather, as they don't breathe! They do rub the back of my heel a bit. I'm not used to anything but sandals, so I have to wear socks to keep from being rubbed. Excellent traction, naturally. Recommend a half size up from your usual if you're wearing socks.

Very comfortable right out of the box. The shoes are wide, which fit my feet. I use them to go to the barn and do yard work in. The slip on very easily and are secure on my feet. Eager to try them out in the snow.

I love these! Such a pretty bright pink against the black! I was a little worried about the size as some of the reviews said they fit a little small, but as the next size up was sold out I decided to go with my regular size. I need not have worried though - I found them to fit exactly to size. Not too tight and even fine with heavy socks. And best of all, no seam around the ankle to rub (which is why I was in the market for boots in the first place - my last ones wore a hole in me!). Nice cushy insole and them seem tough enough on the outside. No open seams to let the snow and wet in either. Highly recommend!

Great service. Fast delivery. Several comments stated to order a size smaller than you normally wear. I wear a size 10 and odered a size 9 and glad I did. They are made large apparently for very thick winter type socks. If you wear normal sport type socks, order one size smaller than normal. Great shoes thatslip on and off without untying the shoes and they keep your feet dry.

I found the boots to be too heavy and only comfortable for short walks.

I have rather narrow feet, but generally don't have trouble finding practical lace up shoes to fit. I cannot complain about the apparent quality of these shoes...if they fit I think I'd be a very happy customer. If you look at the picture you can see that the laces do nothing to secure your foot. If you have very wide feet, you have a good chance at having a shoe you will love on dewey walks. If you don't have fat feet, a pair of cheap rubber boots will serve you just as well, if not so fashionably. Someone described them as "boats"...clogs with high sides is another way to describe them.

I got a pair each for my husband and me. We took them winter camping in Minnesota to wear in our sleeping bags at night. They kept our feet nice and toasty (along with our heavy duty sleeping bags, of course!) Someone else on trip had these and paired them with Neo overshoes- this allowed him to walk around our snowy camp without getting the booties wet. These are definitely not meant for walking around outside. They are great winter slippers though- we use our around the house now that our outdoor adventure is over!

These boots are sized at least three times too large. I bought a size 7 for my son and they are the same size as my husband's size 11 boots. They would never ever fit. Watch out on the sizing if you are buying.

My size is 10 1/2. I ordered size 9 still too big. I called Zappos and asked them to change it for size 7. They emailed me the UPS label and just after I hang up the phone I saw on my account that is already in process and after an hour I got a shipping confirmation already. That is how good Zappos is. Can't get anything wrong with them. So back to the boots - after using it for 4 months then I can finally rate it. I would say order 3 sizes lower and you will be fine. I took out the inner liner. It is spring already when I used it. I need to put a Dr. Scholls sports padding Because it is still big and need a padding inside. I used it for gardening. It was waterproof and comfortable (with the help of Dr. Scholls). It is the best rubber boot for the price, you can't beat Zappos.

The Baffin Impact 08 is the boot I ordered for working in McMurdo Station Antarctica. It met all the size and performance parameters I needed for the climate I was going to be working in. As a Heavy Equipment Operator contractor who works exclusively outside on the Antarctic Ice Shelf building and maintaining Ice Runways, Roads, Airfields landing surface and launch facilities for NASA and USAF for the United States Antarctic Program the boots had to be warm, light weight, have exceptional traction, and most importantly fit my large foot,(15EE) The Baffin Boot exceeded my expectations, they lasted a full two seasons wearing them every day. The only design challenge of this Impact 08 version war the nylon upper got caught on things as I entered the cabin seating of the various equipment seating support occasionally tearing the uppers, and the Insert wore out at the heal unexpectedly after one season, and I ordered a new pair of inserts. The boots are currently ready for a third season, but I am going to have a second pair of Baffin APEX as back ups. There is nothing more important that the freedom of knowing your feet will be warm as toast, in an eight layer special designed insert that fits like a glove, a waffle sole and reflective “air bubble” underfoot and cold rated to -100°C/-148°F. Cold feet,. No Worries! Order BAFFINS!

Shoes offer great protection from water and are comfortable enough for all day use which is a big plus. The only drawback is that on slippery surfaces the traction surprisingly is not that great; you have to be careful. Shoes are on the heavy side but overall I like them very much for what they are intended to do.

I bought this knowing that they are not properly sized. I'm normally a size 7.5 us and purchased a 6 and they were still too big. Too bad, they're nice!

Fits well and is not too big compared to other Baffin boots of the same temp. Haven't yet had a chance to wear them in cold weather but will next season.

Not sure where to start with this. I had worn out a pair of North Face Mules and was looking for a less expensive alternative. I opted for the Baffin's because of the, generally, positive reviews and cost, relative to the North Face Mules. When I first received them, they felt pretty small and, well, cushy. My initial impression was that I made the right choice. They took about 1-2 weeks to break in -- that is, for the 'arch' support to flatten down and feel more comfortable. After about 1.5 months, however, both Baffins developed issues with the stitching. One one pair, it was along the inside, bottom near the ball of the foot. On the other, it was the outside, bottom edge and on the back. After 2.5 months of ownership and some hand sewing from me, I decided it wasn't worth it; They were both beyond repair and so I tossed them into the trash. Not sure what I expected, given the cost, but what I got certainly wasn't worth what I paid for them. Definitely not recommended. At all.

These boots seemed to be of good quality although the ultimate test is time for shoes and boots. I wear a 14 or 15 size shoe. I ordered a 14 because of other reviews. The 14 was huge on my feet and the boots were very "cloggy." So much so that when I got dumped in the water off my boat they slid off and are now sitting in the briny deep. I bought a different pair to replace them and are happy with the better fit and price. I did like the tie tight top to these boots as it helped keep water spray from the boat from getting inside the boot.

Words cannot describe how much I love these boots! I spent two weeks in snowy, icy, wet Montreal. My feet were warm and dry the entire time, even at below-freezing temperatures. The boots are very comfortable, and have great traction. They're attractive as well, and I received compliments on them from several people. My only wish is that they came in half sizes - I had to go a half size larger than I usually wear, so I put in toe pads to fill the extra length.
