My son, only 8 years of age, wears a size 7 men’s shoe. This year it has been nearly impossible to find him a boot that fits. Youth boots size 7 are too small, and men’s size 7 or 8 too large. Additionally, buying men’s shoes and boots for children is an extreme expense. Bought size 8 men’s in these Kamiks and they should serve him well through this winter.
We live in a very cold winter environment, and these boots appear to be ultra warm with a very nice thick inner lining. They are rated to -40 degrees and we will most likely have to opportunity to test that temp or close to it!
These will be used for play, sledding and ice fishing. I hope to update my review based on those activities as the winter progresses.
My only concern is the the top does not pull in to draw close to the leg (probably becuse they are intended for a much bigger leg?!!). I’m hoping this will not mean that snow gets into the top of the boot. We shall see!
After 14 years I have to replace my Bugaboots. FOURTEEN years. I have worn these every single year snowblowing, snowshoing, hiking, backpacking and going to work. They are not your deep. deep snow, 30 below boots – these are great activity boots though! The backs have a “nub” that work nicely with snowshow bindings so they don’t slip off – same for crampons. I am not sure if this is feature or just providential.
Don’t expect these to keep you warm ice fishing but for the average active person these are GREAT.
So, I have had these boots for two weeks now. When I first put the boots on, I wasn’t very happy with the way they felt. They felt a little big, and just not how I like my shoes to feel. Now, I bought size 8 which is my typical size 99% of the time, the other 1% has been a 7.5. Here’s the thing though, I am positive that if I had bought a 7.5 that it would be a bit tight and after putting on wool winter socks they would be almost unwearable.
Now, after wearing these boots for 2 weeks, going for a long walk in the woods drudging through 2+ feet of snow, I can say that I am very happy with my size 8. I am also very happy with how my feet felt. I was wearing regular cotton socks and my feet were not cold nor were they sweating, perfect temperature. I am also very happy with the quality of the boot and they also look very good in my opinion.
So, in short. Buy the boot in the size you normally wear and you will be a happy camper! Cheers
I had owned a pair of these for over four years and they never let me down. I use them for all types of hiking form the Alaska to Yellowstone, from the White Mountains in NH to the Great Smoky Mountains in the south. Always comfortable and water resistant. After over 4 years of on and off use the bottoms are wearing out and the leather, which is still in great condition, is beginning to separate from the sole on one of the boots. Comfortable fit and long lasting for a great price. I just replaced them with a pair of Timberline Chocorua boots which have the identical bottom but slightly higher ankle support and a Gore-Tex liner for better breathing. Both of these boots are great and if you don’t mind spending a few more dollars consider the Chocorua line for the above reasons, you can’t go wrong with either.Tip 1: As soon as you get these boots rub the leather with some mink oil and repeat a few times year. This will keep them waterproof and insure the leather doesn’t dry or crack and will extend their useful life. I did this with my pair of Timberlines and the leather is still soft and water resistant after almost five years.Tip 2: For serious hikes do not use cheap cotton socks. Instead either use wool socks in winter or Hiking Socks. Hiking socks, like Thorlo are expensive but well worth it because they not only wick away moisture, which cotton does not, but also and provides much better cushioning to reduce shear and impact forces so your feet feel great and minimizes the potential for blisters. The weak link of a good boot is the socks – it took me years to realize this.
I purchased them for a trip to Europe and didn’t get a chance to wear them much before the trip.
I was expecting blisters but these fit comfortably from day one and I never experienced a bit of soreness.
I wore them long stretches and in cold weather (down to 20 some degrees Fahrenheit) and never once felt uncomfortable.
I was looking for a warm and comfortable boot that would slip on and off easily when going out to skiing and kiteboarding (snowboard) destinations. This boot fit the bill perfectly! It is super warm and comfy! I read other reviews that complained that the boot leaks when water goes above the shoe part. So, I ordered some KIWI Heavy Duty Water Repellent. I’m gonna try spraying that on them and hopefully they will stay dry on the deep sloppy days. Even if they don’t, the inner soles are easy to remove and air dry if necessary. Good boot for snowblowing too. The tread has a good, non-slip grip! I love not having to mess with my old stupid lace up boots. With these you just slip in and go!
My grown son has been too “cheap” to buy himself a pair of boots for quite some time now. You can’t believe how may pair of sneakers he ruined shoveling snow, etc.! Not to mention how wet his feet got (after all, I am still a mother!)! Finally, for Christmas I decided that I would buy him boots (rather than just ELECTRONIC GAMES he asked for; even fathers don’t grow up that much!). He loved them. They fit him perfectly; and they keep his feet warm and dry (we had a very hard winter with a lot of snow). Definitely worth the price (which I don’t think was high). As for sizing; he’s an adult now and out of my home so I had to guess. I have ordered him sneakers in the past (Nikes) so I used that sizing for these and it was perfect. If you buy a pair of these, you won’t be sorry.
Nice good looking boots. Comfortable interior which keeps your feet warm. I really like this product.
i have only ordered shoes online once before from a different company. needless to say, it was a disaster. however I thjought that I would take a chance on this company, and I am glad that I did. the boots appear to be well made, and they fit very well. I did take the precaution of ordering them a half size larger, as I always do with snow boots to allow for heavier socks. I am very pleased.
