Purchase: I bought these at a local tack shop last year for $69.95.
Likes: Number one thing I liked about them, warmth! I wore a thin pair of socks under them and still they kept my feet very warm. Of course, when you're riding, the blood is flowing and you warm up anyway, but even during our "warm up" and "cool down" when my face and fingers were cold, my feet stayed toasty warm.
Dislikes: I'm not sure if it's because they are not broken in yet, but they do feel a little bit like wearing a ski boot or a steel toe work boot. This is probably a good thing due to their being supportive, but I think it's going to take a while to get used to. I wear Ariat half chaps as well and they wer stretched to capacity to get over these boots.
Quality: These are well made I think. The outer material is waterproof PVC, Duralon, it says on the box. The lining is a polyester Thermolite, but very soft.
Summary: These boots sat in the closet for a year due to the weather not being too cold. As Pittsburgh is in a deep freeze right now (3 degrees, -8 windchill) I decided to break them out! Boy was I impressed! Many people I know have the Ariat winter boots and rave about them, for $30 less, these are a great alternative.
