I got these shoes for the winter in Pittsburgh and I am not disappointed. We still have snow on the ground and they are very durable in the snowy, icy walking weather. The best part about these shoes is how comfortable they are. I feel like I'm wearing a slipper and just ordered another pair because they are so good. I took the advice of other reviewers and bought a larger size so I'm wearing a 13 instead of a 12 and they fit perfectly with the larger size.
