I bought these last year for a snow trip, which got canceled. Finally wore them today during a downpour! First putting them on they are comfortably snug (I have a wide foot and these don't feel huge nor right) and they are warm and feel padded. However I was disappointed, these lovely boots need some tweaking, I wasn't in the rain for long and I could feel my socks getting wet from the toe area, maybe add extra reinforcement in the front? Lastly they are a bit slippery if walking at a normal brisk pace on pavement, I imagine there would be some traction problems in the snow as well? Those are my only problems with these boots other wise they're perfect! Plus I got compliments from 12 different people, young, old, men and women!Eddie Bauer, plzzzz remake my perfect boots, and I'll love you forever!!!
