Think these are super cute and with the wool uppers, could go fairly dressy with black leggings and a nice tunic, long cardigan or ruana. Opinions?

I'd say "comfort" rules. Have had rubber soled boots I couldn't walk a mile in. If these are over the top in comfort and the wool is mde to not get very wet, I'd say spring for 'em.

Forget the wool uppers. They will get wet. Get all rubber.
I'm not going trudge through the snow to muck out a barn although one pleased reviewer says she does just that. I'm thinking of a rainy day in the city ...something that will dress up enough to go to a gallery, museum or decent restaurant without looking like barn boots. My sightseeing day in DC a few weeks ago was the Sunday I was in town, and the remnants of a subtropical storm happened to be sightseeing the same day. These would've been great.

Perfect for the purpose you suggested. They are simple, practical and look warm & comfy.☺

I'm telling you the wool uppers will get wet and uncomfortable and heavy. Fine if not raining. You asked for opinion. I'm not into style in bad weather.

Maybe they're treated with something. No reviews, not even the few negative ones that didn't fit a particular person's foot mention a problem with the felted part getting wet.

I'm not buying them for sustained outdoor wear. I have country girl rain/snow boots from Cabela's that serve me well for that.

AnnieA. You seem to be more interested in style instead of function. Trust me. I know all about wet felt.
You're beginning to really tickle me. 🙃 I really am chuckling out loud. Maybe it's the difference in the way a woman and a man view boots. Women have a spectrum from a serious weather boot to fru fru waterproof leather boots with 'gasp' high heels. This is a comfy getting-from-the-parking-lot-to-inside-anything-from-the-grocery-store-or-to-an-art-gallery type of rainy day boot.

But to set your mind at ease, they can be returned postage free.

I notice now that all the young ladies are wearing what looks like firemen boots.

There's nothing comparable for guys other than real firemen boots.
First you criticize her choice saying they look like fireman’s boots then went on to compare them to men’s firemen’s boots which was totally irrelevant
AnnieA. You seem to be more interested in style instead of function. Trust me. I know all about wet felt.
Then you once again criticize her boots because you ‘believe’ her choice is all about fashion.

YOU aren’t the one wearing them and I might be wrong but it would appear that she’s seeking opinions from other women which YOU aren’t🥰

Goodness, I hope they don't. Think he was commenting that young ladies are wearing the black and yellow ones with the pull up loops ...which you're right, was totally irrelevant. If he does think the OP boots look like these, then I certainly don't want his fashion advice. 😲

Yep. I have already stated no comparison to Mens boots.

You know Keesha never give an analytical person something to read or ask for an opinion because that's what he will do.
A: She didn't ask for women only to respond.
B: I didn't say those looked like firemans boots. I said that's what others were wearing.
C: They are not cute if that's what you are looking for.
D: I'm somewhat of a B.S.'r myself, but continue with your story.

Ok Camper, I’ll bite.

A/. I did not say she asked for women only to respond . I said it would ‘appear’ that she is seeking women’s opinions.
B/ I didn’t say they those looked like me fire boots.
You said ‘I noticed all young ladies are wearing boots that look like fireman boots
C/. I wasn’t ‘getting’ at anything. If I want to say something I do. You of all people know better than that.
D/. I know you’re a B.S.’er Camper which is why it’s so easy to nail you.

A: An analytical person only reads what is written not what it appears and views the picture.
B: This is a seniors forum not all young women.
C: Of course you are getting at something or you wouldn't respond.
D:You missed the part about continue with your 'story'

Well thank you for showing us the boots YOU were talking about Camper. I’m sure they’ll look real cute on you. 😁
Don't you read anything I write? I have already stated that there is nothing comparable for men unless they want to go firefighting style.

I don't go for cute in rain or snow gear. I go for comfort.
