Snow Boots for Women

When it comes to winter dressing, there are few things as snug as brushed leather and faux fur. That's just one reason we're smitten with Columbia Sportswear's Ice Maiden Lace. The other reasons? Its perfectly placed shaft--not too short, not too tall--its comfortably rounded toe, its simply elegant profile, its thick rubber traction sole ... need we continue?

Color Name: Black/ Bright RoseSize Name: 9 B(M) US Amazon Verified Purchase Nice boots - unfortunately I got to try them out while shoveling a foot of snow in October. This is so wrong! But at least I know the boots are great. I'll have to wait until I can step in slushy puddles for the real test of water resistance but they are very toasty and you can either tuck in your pants or wear them under. Because of the mid height and lack of big fluffy faux fur top they work well either way. They're also light weight for the size and style - I wore them all day and they were quite comfy. I have no idea why they call these "Black/Bright Rose." They're all black. The ~1" logo on the bottom of the sole is red. I had already seen them in a store so I knew color description was weird.
 They run true to size so probably a good idea to get a half size larger than your normal shoe size if you want to wear heavy socks.

The boots were perfect out of the box. Sizing seemed accurate to possibly a bit small. I usually wear 10.5-11 and the size 11 boots are great. Not too loose, not too tight. I can wear absolutely any socks, thick or thin - even two pairs - and the boots allow for the room. They are incredibly warm, but also breathe well as my feet do not get sweaty or too dry, nor do they overheat.
The only thing I was unsure about was the waterproofing abilities of the boots. I'd only really tested it against the cold (wind) and an inch or two of snow. After this past week however, the boots proved far better than expected. I've worn "waterproof" boots in the past that claimed to be waterproof, but after even tromping around in the snow (wet or not..) my feet would start getting wet, and of course would then be freezing shortly after. After the foot of snow last Saturday started forming 6 inch rivers in the road which I stood in for two hours digging out my car, I'm sold on the abilities of these boots. After the two hours jumping in and out of the water and snow piles, my feet were still warm and dry when I went inside.
They are comfortable enough to wear for extended periods, quite light-weight, and seem very durable. I have no concerns about wearing these boots and giving them a beating in the winters. They were a great choice for the unpredictable winters in Nebraska.

I just got these boots in the pewter blue coral color, and they are so comfortable and cute! The tag says they are good down to -25 degrees so we will see this winter. In Minneapolis it can get very cold and I am hoping these will help when I am out shoveling the driveway early in the morning. I will also see if the suede is as waterproof as they say on these boots. There's nothing worse than cold and wet feet. I got a size up because I read other reviews that said Columbia boots run small. I'm glad I did, my regular size would have been too small to wear these boots with thick socks. They also have lug soles to help with traction on ice, another essential here in Minnesota. The higher shaft up the calf is nice too, to keep snow out of the boot. The other boots I had were too short and filled up with snow. The fur around the top is a nice touch. They are easy to pull on and off, and I have a high arch so I wondered about that. I am hoping for great things from these boots this winter!

I went shopping for winter boots at one of the malls and Sporting Goods stores with my sister and couldn't find anything I liked. I wanted something that would keep my feet warm in the -15 degree weather in Northern Minnesota and looked good yet were durable. I FOUND THEM! I absolutely love my new boots. They have sheepskin down to the ankles and a form of wool or other insulator in the foot area. I have worn them out in 17 degree weather without wool socks and my feet were not warm yet not cold. I can imagine if I wore my woolies inside. I got the great boots I wanted and it was easy to choose given the reviews given by the people who cared enough to respond. Read the other reviews and see if these boots are for you. I personally have already sprayed them with water proof spray because I want them to last forever. Try them out. They are AWESOME!
