I did an inexhaustible search for the right boots and came up empty-footed until I found this gem of a pair of Die-Hard’s! As soon as I slid my foot in this pair the plush cushiony comfort stood out above all competitors! They are well insulated and are easy to put on and take off. These boots are also waterproof and oil resistant and have excellent traction! These boots look great and perform well in our Buffalo, NY Snow and Ice which is important to me as last winter I hurt myself on a slip on the ice with a lesser quality competitor that didn’t provide me with the non-slip protection that these boots do provide! I’d give these boots a 100% out of 100 as they are flawless and extremely competent and durable!!!!
