I live in Toronto and walk with my dog around the streets and sidewalks in all types of weather. I don't own a car so walking is my main form of tranportation. These boots are super warm, waterproof and unbelievably comfortable. Great support, lightweight almost like wearing a slipper and they allow your feet to breath. My toes are kept toasty warm even wjen it's -20. And I can wear them all day at work because they breath you forget they are insulated. Clearly these are made with some sort of magic. I've owned other Keen boots but these are by far the best boots by any brand I have ever owned!
