I love wearing boots like this in winter with the fluffy insides as they keep my feet warm, and after buying pair after pair of £4 ones in Tesco I decided to splash out and get a proper pair. On the recommendation of a friend I decided to plump for Bearpaw and spotted a black pair on eBay - brand new for £35.
I went for the taller ones in the hope they'd keep my ankles dry if I accidentally stepped in a puddle, or in rain, and plumped for black as it goes with everything. I bought my pair in autumn 2011 so I've had them just over a year at this point.
I have worn these boots in all weathers, rain, snow, even in summer when it's been a bit chilly. They go with jeans, leggings, dresses and keep my feet toasty when it's cold. I've noticed they keep their shape brilliantly and don't get that flattening of the heel I've noticed with other boots of this style. The black hasn't faded and while the boots no longer look brand new they are in excellent condition - especially considering I wear them a lot.
They are the most comfortable pair of boots I've owned and are still waterproof. I walk to and from work every day (around 1.5miles each way) and have done this in all weathers - my feet have never gotten wet when wearing these boots. My friend has said the same thing; she's had hers around the 2 year mark now and they're still in great condition and waterproof.
