These boots do not have any traction/treads for snow. They're high quality, cute- I have 17 inch juicy calves and these boots actually FIT! These are not. Do not buy these, if you plan on walking in snow.
Are they light weight? They are more substantial than a Wellington rain boots. I wouldn’t call them light weight but I don’t find too heavy. They are more of a cold weather boot. how can the shafts distance be 14 inches from the arch if the product dimensions are 12x9x6? none Where in nw indiana can i try on a pair mens or womens? have tried everywhere: department stores and sporting goods stores? You can try on a pair locally and then order online if you want. Sizes are the standard sizes I have issues with feet sweating in my wool socks in winter boots and then my feet being cold because inside of boot retains moisture, do these? I didn't wear socks when I wore those boots while shoveling. But I had a very hard time taking them off, so I don't use them. How much do these boots weigh? I have a ranch and a way to walk to the barn and stalls to muck. The pair weigh 3.8 lbs. The extra weight isn't really noticeable to me; I weigh under 110 pounds. They are great boots and easily hosed off.
