Perfect boots for a Michigan winter! I bought these for my husband who works construction outside and he said that his feet never got cold or sweaty even though it was below zero.
My background: retired military, 52 years old, living in South Dakota. I have hunted deer and birds nearly all my life, and lived all around the US and overseas. I currently maintain three different styles and brands of hunting boots that each meet a certain mission. I needed a new pair of insulated pac boots because I like the waterproofness inherent in the design. I owned a single pair of LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoe pac boots for nearly 30 years, but they no longer offer the air-bob style sole, so I found Schnee's 10-inch Hunter II as an alternative, and I like the Schnee's better. The Schnee's boots are just heavier-duty than the Bean's offering. Like a 2500 pickup versus a 1500 pickup. The Schnees are obviously well built with quality leather and stitching. The wool liners are very warm; almost too warm for active use perhaps (?), but time will tell as I log some more mileage in the snow here. I'm sure they will be great for sitting in a tree stand! As far as size, I wear 10.5, so I went with size 11. They feel -almost- too big, but I can lace them tight and they feel solid. Bottom line is these boots are very high quality and I would buy them again.
I purchased these boots for my fiancé for Christmas and he loves them. He said his feet have never been so warm in the snow as they are when he wears these boots. He was very pleased! I had a great experience with their customer service as well. I was worried these boots wouldn't arrive by Christmas and the person I spoke with ensured they were sent out the next day. *Side note: my dad swears by these boots, he has put many miles on the pair he purchased 20 years ago!
Boot wears out well with little break in period. Found them to be very comfortable after a long day in the woods. Sole of the boot provided great traction. The fit was true to size. I usually wear a size 10, the 10 with the liner fit well.
Great boot for my use. Long walks in the woods with my dogs and general deep snow in the city when cold. High quality and good fit. I tried a 9 and a 10 and went with the 10. I'm 9 and 9.5 on Brannock but the 9 liner was too tight even though the boot size seemed better when trying on. Time will tell after a season of wear but I highly recommend Schnee's.
