I purchased these as a 2nd pair knowing that someday my original pair will wear out. These are amazingly comfortable snow boots. This past winter I spent many hours in them strapped to snowshoes. I went up hill, over dale, through deep snow, on packed trails, and all the while my feet were comfortable and warm! This is why I purchased a 2nd pair, so I wouldn't be without my new favorite snow boot. Also -- they are very comfy apres ski and provide good traction on packed snow in the ski area parking lot!
