I use this for daily commuting in winter, the grip is very good. Only major issue with this boot is the insole, which is very stiff and is not resilient, meaning once it compresses it stays compressed and feels very hard. I Swapped them out for some other softer insoles and the comfort was amazing. its a bit roomy above the instep area but with the right sock it fits great. definitely try these on before buying. Very durable, i would buy again but will change the insole as well.
