Christina, the sweat isn't pouring off of you when it's cold enough to wear boots like mine! LOL
My last pair of boots from them lasted at least 10 winters so it's really cheap when you look at it like that. These are basically the same except they are way lighter so hopefully that will be a good thing.
Really what i need them for though is my uncoordinated self cannot walk on ice/snow well at all and I need major traction soles....and my old boots were vital in my not a$$ busting all the time.
