Rated 5 out of 5 by NoahJohn Long-Lasting Comfortable Boots
I have owned two pairs of mens Salomon winter boots. They have logged hundreds of miles of winter walks and snowshoeing. The treads are long-lasting, they immediately fit comfortably out of the box and insulate well unless the temperature is 10 to 15 degrees. At that point they don't insulate well. I'm not one to baby boots. Gaiters are necessary with these boots. They protect most of the boot and foot from immersion in mud, water and when breaking shell ice. After using my original pairs for six years I'm ordering a new pair -now with the name "Nitro." I expect them to be as good or better. From my experience the price is worth it because the boots are reliable, well-made and perform for my use. L.L. Bean does not list an average insulation value for these. I'm expecting them to insulate as well as my current pairs based on past performance. If they don't, L.L. Bean's 100% guarantee is there to use. The company genuinely wants customer feedback as well as will stand behind their products.

Excellent Looking shoes. The material is of high quality. Haven't had the chance to wear it much but looking forward to it. Also the shipping was really fast and the best part its free.

Wow. Just wow. I've had these boots over a year now and it was really love at first sight. When I stumbled on these things while looking for winter boots on llbean.com I was immediately impressed by the design, style, and features. However, when I originally found them there were no reviews!
Let me just say right now, these things are AMAZING. If you're on the fence but not sure if they're as good as they look then take my word for it, they totally are. They're better! I barely ever took them off all last winter, they keep your feet warm and comfortable even when it's well below freezing, and paradoxically even if you're in a warm building your feet won't overheat.
So let's talk about the fit. My feet are normally about 10.5 and very wide. I ordered a 10.5 Wide EE in another boot and that fits about right, but with this boot I also ordered a 10.5 and in medium since they don't offer wide. The boot fits my feet very nearly perfectly, so if you have narrow feet I might go down a size.
Overall, these are just amazingly good, comfortable, and functional boots and I've been wanting to write this review for over a year. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deighdee SERIOUS ACTION TRACTION
Serious Action Traction Boots that both my husband and I find surprisingly comfortable: I (the wife) simply purchased for myself the equivalent of woman?s size 10 which is approximately a men's size 8 or 8 1/2. For those who are looking for a winter boot with good support in snow, as someone who is post knee surgery I find the high ankle fit combined with superb support in the arch and around the foot does in fact fit that bill 110%. In winter, we take our German Shepherd Dogs for treks, search and rescue training, and tracking exercises: all the while, we find these boots to be amazingly comfortable for winter sports, with excellent traction, and our feet stay nice and warm. Please do not ever discontinue making this boot. If anything, please offer this boot in women's sizes.
