A classic from Eddie Bauer originally introduced in the 1950s, reborn with waterproof full-grain leather, seam-sealed construction, and an ultrawarm 200 gram ThermaFill® insulation. Built for mucking effortlessly through cold, wet, sloppy winter conditions.
I bought these boots to take with me to Yellowstone national park for a week this winter. I had gaitors as well. I had separate boots for cross country skiiing but I wore these for walking to the geysers, walking to my cabin from the snow lodge and on all the expeditions I did via a snow coach. I walked through 4-5 feet of snow and experienced sub 0 temps. I must say these boots held up great for the conditions i put them through. I wish they had more lining in them for warmth (i wore thick wool socks), the tongue of the boot was sealed all the way up the boot for guard against wind and the laces were thicker for durability. I lined the seams with kiwi boot guard which helped a bit for water. My feet sweat so after 8hrs in the boots i felt moisture. i wasnt sure if it was leaking or just my sweat. Overall, a great boot and i really dont think they were made for the harsh elements i put them through. For your commute to work, out to the bar or to the mailbox... perfect!
I was originally looking for a pair of Sorel boots but couldn't bring myself to pay $200 for something I'll only be wearing a handful of times a year. Found these on sale and gave them a shot. They are warm (with a pair of thick wool socks) but have a large seam in the heel that would be uncomfortable without the aforementioned socks. Again, with a heavy sock this is not an issue. They also kept my feet dry. Overall, I am very happy with these boots and would definitely recommend them.
I bought these boots for a four night canoe camping trip in the Boundary Waters, recognizing that I was buying them for a purpose they are not advertised for. When canoe camping, you step in a few inches of water for a 1-10 seconds every now and then. I really thought that because of their rubber bottom and leather upper, and because they are advertised for "sloppy" winter weather they would be okay, meaning that maybe they would leak a little bit,. But I had FULL ON sloshing feet. And as they dried every night, you could see that the seams would be wet (see picture, they are still wet two days after canoe camping), meaning to me that the seaming is poor. I wish I had used mink oil on the leather before I headed out. That might have made a difference on my experience. I bought a size 8 mens, when I'm a 9-9.5 womens, and wore waterproof socks and wool socks underneath. The only reason why I didn't give these a lower rating is because they were comfortable (possibly because I had two pairs of socks on) and lightweight despite being water logged. They also handled decently on rocks while portaging on the trails between lakes, but *decently* is the key word. From my experience I doubt they would be okay in anything beyond light, low snow. I strongly doubt they would do okay in that gross, sloshy snow we can have here in the streets in Chicago winter.
