Ordered these for a ski trip and they were wonderful! Warm and cozy--my feet were never cold. They are just a tiny, tiny bit short, but nothing that was uncomfortable.

I bought these for my 9 year old son. I am currently waiting for my third pair. With the first pair, the cord that adjusts the tightness around the ankle broke within a couple of uses. With the second pair, the sole has pulled away from the stitching and frayed after only a couple of uses. I'm giving Baffin one more chance only because my son LOVES them. But the quality is obviously super-low.

These boots are warm and comfy. They are lighter and less chunky than I was expecting, which is great. I usually wear a 6 or 6.5. I ordered the 7 and it fits perfectly. My only complaint is that the back of the ankle is too stiff/inflexible, while the rest of the ankle is loose and offers little support. The boots are great for walking around in the cold and snow, but the lack of good ankle support makes me hesitant to hike in them.

I bought these for my wife after being recommended by a friend to this brand. She says they are the best boot she has worn. Very warm and comfortable. Bought 2 sizes larger than normal as we were told they run small, for a perfect fit.

These are great boots. Would highly recommend them. They are extremely warm, look nice, and are very comfortable. I am 5'4, wear 6 size shoe but I do have large calves. Those these boots say they are 17 " diameter, which seem very large, the liner takes up a lot of that room. There was enough room to tuck my pants inside the boot - but just barely. I ordered a size 8 (I wear a 6) and they fit perfectly. I wouldn't have wanted them any smaller. They do run very small.

Looking for soft, warm and light-as-a-feather house slippers? Yup, you've found them! Hubby loves these. Got them in navy. The perfect slipper for napping -no cold feet! Be advised these puppies are not designed for outdoor wear (fabric soles with slip-resistant printed design) and they have zero arch support. So, if that is what you are searching for, you will be disappointed. Size 3XL is roomy, fits size 13 foot as expected, easy to slip on and off! Although looking somewhat like pot holders for your feet, they provide cuddly, warm comfort!

I bought these as a gift for my 11 year old son. They fit him well and he loves them. However, the side seam separated within the first week and now there's a 1 inch hole. I would not recommend them for this reason.

These boots are wonderful. They are insulted so you do not really need socks. They look absolutely fantastic. Bring on the snow so I have a reason to wear them!

These are the best slippers ever, like your feet are wrapped in a pillow! If you go outside, you want shoes not slippers (the only negative feedback is from people who are confused and think these are shoes - but would you walk outside in your socks? Think of them a bit more like that!). And if you want slippers, these are the coziest, warmest, comfiest ever. And for the price (and the exchange policy), you have nothing to lose. Stop pondering and buy a pair - you will not regret it!

These are great boots overall and the warmest winter boots that I have ever owned. They do seem to run small, the size 9 was slightly too short so I went with the 10, which is slightly too large. The downside of the boots is that I would prefer a snugger fit - they are a bit wide and bulky, and being slightly long, is pulling socks down unless I wear tight, thick socks. But there is some arch support and much more shock absorbency and comfort than most of the other name brand snow boots that I have tried on this year.

The photo of these booties looks like they fit pretty well, and are actually bootie-shaped. But in reality they are pretty floppy and hard to walk in. Also, the sole is really thin, barely padded at all. They do keep my feet warm. I would only wear them in my sleeping bag in a tent. I do not think they are worth this price.

Get these! They are comfortable, warm, good for walking in snow/ice/rain/cold. No breaking-in required. You can put boots on/off without adjusting straps/laces. They are great for commuting (you can walk miles without discomfort), wear with tights, change into heels at work. I bought these Baffins because I have another pair of Baffins that have lasted over five years - so I am happy with this new pair - they are totally worth the investment.

I like the simplicity and functionality of these boots. I also bought other pairs of Baffins and Tundras, but returned those and kept this pair; it looked best, felt most comfortable, and functions well in cold/wet/ice/snow. I wish they came in half-sizes since the 7 is way too big on me and the 6 is very snug, but I went with the 6, and even though they are very tight, they feel secure, and as I wear them they pack down a little bit and mold to my feet. Even though they come waterproof and thermal insulated, I bought waterproofing spray and gave them a few coats to make them more durable for a Chicago winter. I also found that I needed to buy thermal sheepskin foot insoles to wear in the bottom - the whole entire boot feels very warm on its own except the bottom; the bottoms of my feet felt very cold while walking in these on the street, even though the rest of my foot & calf felt warm and protected. Now that I have added this extra layer of warmth to the bottom, these boots are perfect. I often do not even need to wear socks with them, I just pull them on barefoot for a quick trip out and they are completely warm. This is a great pair of boots, I hope they last many seasons. I tried the grey, black, and brown, and liked the look of the grey best, the color seemed to scuff up less noticeably than black.

I was excited to get these boots (Thanks to Zappos for super quick shipping!) but the boots looked so unflattering. I don't usually write reviews but this boot needed a review! The calf circumference was unbelievably wide making the boot look so unpleasing! I wear a 8 1/2 and purchased the 9 but they just looked hideous on my feet. When I showed my husband the boot, he was like, "These boots are so ugly on you." Plus the pair that I got looked like it has been tried on by more than 1 person which I'm sure has been returned countless of times! The only thing good about it is that they did feel comfortable on my feet but the overall design is a serious flaw.

These work so well that when I take them off at night, my feet are so warm they're almost hot! Perfect for cold weather evenings at home when your feet tend to get cold before the rest of you does.

Every child has dreamed of becoming an astronaut. Now you can walk in their boots all winter. This is all function over form. So unattractive. If I were going to be exploring glaciers or researching polar bears, I may have kept these. Unfortunately, I have a desk job, so these need to be returned.

Not as warm as I thought they would be! These boots are very well made and VERY comfortable but the there is a strip where the liner is joined together that has no insulation on it and my toes are cold even when wearing these with temps in the low 20s. Other than my toes being cold they are really great boots! I'm giving them a low rating though cause the main reason for me buying them is I needed a really warm boot for working outside in the winter.

Just received my order and, while they seem comfortable, I won't get a chance to try them for real until I exchange for a smaller size. Whoever said they run small...they don't. I wear a men's 10 shoe and I ordered up a size for these, based on reviews. The size 11-12 slippers are way too large.

My foot size is size 9 but I ordered a 10 as recommendation from Baffin website that if the boots are -100, order a size up. So that's what I did. My foot has low arch, not on the narrow side nor wide either. So I guess mine is plump? I wear boc boots that are friendly for my feet. Since it will snow terribly in Indiana, I want boots with good traction and can be for deep snow. These boots are snug because of the liner...until now I'm trying to figure out if I just need sometime to break them in. Thick socks don't work and with thin socks, my foot is sliding in the boots. They are not heavy but clompy. I wanted to have arch support so I bought superfeet black (recommended for low arch). I first remove the liner from the boot. It was so difficult to remove the liners so I had to fold the outer part of the boots and pull/twist as hard as I could to get them out. I placed my non-bendable superfeet and that's a challenge too but I was able to by folding down the sides of the liner first. That's a lot of work. How I wear them now is using thin crew socks. And with the superfeet insole, it feels so much better when I walk. Kudos to the zapponians (customer service team)! I love them!

I wish I could order half sizes. I ordered my true size and my toes jammed up against the front. THere is a lovely, warm liner, but it is like the boot is true to size and the liner makes them too small. Either everything should be made a half size up or they should offer half sizes. And don't think about wearing thick socks. Also, the shaft is so wide, that it moves up and down and all around rubbing my calves and shins in ways I didn't expect. I love the look and wish that they had worked out.

A great boot. First pair lasted 5 years. Wanted another pair, but this time they didn't fit the same. Really loved them except for the fit this time. (Too short in my regular size, too big all over one size up.) Love the free returns/exchanges!
