I have been thinking about just getting a pair of MH paddocks so I don't have to worry about the calf size. My calves may have to suffer, but at least my toes will be toasty!

Well, I think people wear them for a lot of different reasons. A lot of us ride english, and are used to riding in tall boots and breeches because that's what's required we show in. They also help with grip, and they offer protection for your leg (mostly from the stirrup leather?). There's also the traditional factor.

I really want winter tall boots because, not only do I ride english, where I live the snow often comes up to my knees. What's even worse than the snow is the mud! It covers my ankles at times, and sloshes around. Paddock boots just don't cut it in the winter!

Simple, if there's more than 6"s of snow on the ground you don't end up with wet feet if you have tall boots. Wet feet are cold feet where winter is concerned.

Very valid point. I don't need them (as I usually don't ride in winter due to icy conditions and we almost don't have snow), but I can see problems with paddock boots.
