I have to stand up for the Mountain horse boots too... I've had mine for at least four years, and use them for horses and riding, and skiing/being outside. I live in Jersey and ski in Vermont, so these boots get put through hell, and they are AWESOME.
We too just got 25 inches of snow, and I walked around in them all day--they're the ones that go up to the knee. Awesome shoe, awesomely made. You can get a 'dud' shoe from any brand... sometimes they slip through the cracks.
