I LOVE these boots! I got a pair as a replacment when the zipper snapped on my old pair and I absolutley love wearing them on cold/wet days. They are totally water proof to. I was in water almost to the top of them and my feet were perfectly dry.

I have wind proof layers which helps. After 5 years of Pro ski patrolling, I think I have killed any temperature feeling in most of my body. Last time I was true cold was -39c without windchill, with windchill -47c. It wasn't pleasant.

Ok going to have to give them a thumbs down,,, just got mine today. They don't fit. They are smaller than the stated size. They are labeled on box as Mens 11's but are too small. Every other shoe in the house I have are 11's.

I was actually looking into buying these!! My horse is in such muck and I am a clutz wearing flats in the paddock (yeah I know...) and ruining my paddock botts (they'll never show themselves in public again :P)

I am definitely going to see if I can try them first somehow.. as I am super duper rough on my stuff.

-51 C windchill sucked in southern Alberta 2 years ago. I think that was the worst winter ever for our area. For our Farenheit friends, that -59.8 F. Brr

Thumbs up Totally Agree... Brit Colts are the BEST!

I got mine at a place called Schatzlein's Saddle Shop in Minneapolis about a month ago, and I LOVE them! They were $139, but worth every freakin' penny in the frozen tundra of MN... I have trouble getting traditional English boots to fit my calves, even though they aren't really that big, and I had tried like 6 other pairs of winter riding boots on when I stumbled upon these; I love that you can roll them down to get them on & off, and also when you're getting a little TOO warm. Believe it or not, it's only been down to the teens up here this winter, and I have almost been too warm in these boots with silk liners & med. Weight wool socks... they don't have any trouble fitting into either my English or Western stirrups, which is nice, and I don't feel like I'm losing contact in any way; very secure, with good support too. I'm keeping them, that's for sure!

I wouldn't give up if you think the next size up might fit... these are truly excellent boots (I usually take a 6/6.5 women's boot, but needed a 7 in these - luckily, I bought them in-store, so I didn't have to hassle with returns).

I think they were a bit small because they do have a bit of padding to them. The padding might interfere with the overall size.
