I like them and with over 1/2 a foot of snow on the ground here they would be put to good use. I have a pair of Kodiak winter boots, they are handy because they are rubber on the bottom so no leakage in the wet slush. I also have a nice pair of mucklucks http://shop.mukluks.com/images/arr220.gif
for when it's not slushy.
Around here those would be kind of a dress boot.
