Just received my shoes today. I wear size 8 but these run big and I will be returning them. They are also little dirty like someone was wearing them and have hair inside.

These boots are very cute, but I have a high "rise" on the front of my foot and I could not zip them up all the way to the top of the zipper. They are definitely cute and warm, but I am returning them because of the zipper issue.

I have a bad back that makes it hard to bend over, these boots can be slipped on easily while standing up not using my hands. They are also warm and keep out the wet. I am very happy with them.

I bought these to replace my old moon boots from the late 80's. They're just as easy to put on, and seem pretty waterproof (or snowproof anyway). I don't usually wear them for more than a half-hour or so, but they are certainly comfortable for that long! Like the look too.

The boots are very good for cold and snow. One thing I did find wrong was padding on the bottom was not thick enough for me. Fixed problem by buying a "Dr. Scholls" insert. Would recommend these boots highly.

I got this boot for work travel to a snowy location, where I didn't want to look like I was wearing snow boots to meetings. This worked for that, as much as a snow boot can! My feet stayed warm and it was comfortable for walking in. However, the front zippers would not stay up! I was wearing heavier socks than normal (because of the cold) so that may have contributed, but I ended up just leaving them unzipped most of the time because I was tired of rezipping them just to have them fall down again.

These boots are not warm. Big disappointment! I thought they looked cute, and I bought them to replace another pair of Khombu boots from some years ago that were fleece-lined leather. I've worn them twice and my feet froze both times. I will likely send them back!

Zippers will not stay up. Returned one pair thinking it was limited to that pair. Liked the boot style, comfort, and warmth but do not think they are worth the money when the zippers do not stay up. Would not purchase again. Disappointed.

I really loved this boot when I bought it three years ago. However, after only having the boot for one season, the sole cracked and my foot got wet? I was so disappointed in the life of the boot, only one year? I am looking for something with a stronger construction for the sole. I guess that is why they call it Khombu, if you want the whole name "boot" you have to pay for the rest.

I love these boots. I had some like them over 20 years ago and have searched to replace them ever since. These are a bit less stylish but better made with better materials. What I appreciate most of all is the ease with which you can step in and out of them. I am in my seventies and laces are too hard for me to deal with now.

These boots are comfortable and stylish. They do not stay zipped up despite my efforts to carefully zip and place the zipper pull flat. This has happened every time I wear them. I can't recommend them based on the zipper issue.

I bought these boots for ease of getting on and off and -20° tested. I noticed that if you do not Velcro them tightly, snow does get in on the side; they also seem to be missing any foot support. I ended up buying quite a bit of Merino wool foot support to wear with them. They are sort of clunky. I would not want to walk very far in them.

Ordered these on Monday for my mother-in-law, came to my house in Oregon on Tuesday. Couldn't have gotten to the store that fast. She loves them, fit is great.

It is a very spacious slip on/off boot. The length of the boot is true to size but I prefer a slightly more snug fit especially when treading over icy sidewalks. If I were to trip I could imagine these boots flying off. They are going back.

I ordered one size up for my teenage niece based on prior reviews. I tried them on myself and they are warm and cozy and super comfortable to walk in (especially compared to others that I tried). She absolutely loves them, and said that the size is right.

After about a month I felt that my feel would get wet every time it was raining or snowing. I found out that the sole cracked. Very poor quality.

These boots are cute, look great under jeans, kept my feet warm and dry while shoveling 12 inches of snow BUT they are impossible to zip up. I had to use needle nose pliers to pull the zippers up and then one zipper pull broke off when trying to unzip. Loved these if only the zippers were better.

These are great winter, snow boots! I have been wearing them in deep, slushy Chicago snow and love them. They keep my feet super warm and dry. They are also very lightweight so I do not feel like I am wearing moon boots. I highly recommend them.

Cute boots and very warm! Just too small... I wear an 8.5 shoe, so I ordered a 9. Too small, so I'm returning.

Had a pair last season but left them in a hotel accidentally. Loved them so re-ordered and they were too narrow in the calf to zip. So disappointed to have to return them.

Bought purposely Khombu boots 1 size bigger, and new sheepskin insoles. Very warm and comfortable especially at temperatures of -5 up to -30 degree Celsius. I am very happy and so is my daughter. Zipper does not stay closed at all times and slides down, but this can be improved in the next years collection I hope.
