I bought these to walk my dog in the park when it is muddy and wet. They keep my feet dry and warm. They do the job perfectly. I don't find them hard to get into as expressed by another reviewer. I just undo or loosen the top part of the shoe laces and I can get into them comfortably - I wear a size EE (extra wide) normally, so this says something about how easy or hard it is to get into these boots.
