Note, the companies current production has a red band around the bear and runs smaller in size or true to size if you will. A size 11 in these is actually slightly larger than a size 12 in the current production glacier boot that I got for my son.
Getting new boots sent to me now, very easy through Amazon and will return this pair (policy and procedure is fantastic). I will come back and give it another star or two if it was merely a one-off issue (I may have received the 1-1000 defect). I am posting this mostly to others who have the boot that if they experienced the same, then they are not crazy (nor am I).
If this fixes the issue - then the boot is really good. But you need that cinch at the top to really feel comfortable. Best of luck with your choice in winter boot.
I just got back from a long week of extreme winter survival/snow cat operator training program in the Sierra Mountains near Donner Lake California. I am so proud of these boots because of how they kept my feet warm and comfortable, and how they handled in deep snow.
When I first opened them up and looked at them I thought "wow these things are huge"! I thought maybe my shoes would be able to fit inside them, that's how massive these are. I thought dang maybe I shouldn't have got these ones, but now I'm glad I did. I wear an 11 1/2 Nike shoe and I read somewhere to order 1/2 size down because they run large. I got the size 11 regular. My feet fit ok, just real loose. Not so much in the length but the width could be a little narrower. My feet are pretty narrow. I tried them out near my house sledding with my kids, they were a little big and sloppy as far as fit and I was concerned with taking these to my upcoming training.
Ok, day 5 we were out all day building survival caves in 4-6ft of snow and other various exercises. It was snowing hard all day, real worst case nasty weather. My buddy had like regular snow boots on and he kept falling through the snow all the way to almost his waste. It became such a problem for him due to exhaustion, it is a lot of work getting yourself out of something like that. I broke through few in two spots, but only up to my knees. I got to thinking that the massive foot print has be to thank for my unexpected good fortune. These are not snow shoes by any means, but they handled better than most. Being exhausted is the last thing you want when it comes to hypothermia. All the instructors wore military Mickey Mouse boots rated at -60. They swear by those things. They too had a massively large boot just like the glaciers. Their feet were also toasty all day in that stuff. I also drove my truck like 150 miles with these on, not a problem at all as far as size. My buddy was complaining mid-day about his toes were so cold that they were really hurting and he mentioned if they got any worse he have to go inside and warm them up. I felt bad for him, because I'm usually the one in that boat going the cheaper route. Not this time, my feet were absolutely comfortable! I didn't mention that these boots are real comfortable to walk in, and them being a little on the loose side was not even an issue at all. In fact they could of been a little bulkier cause of the breaking through thing. this never came to mind when buying these. But when your up in those circumstances in the middle of no where, I now can say the bigger the better. I now think the loose fit is purposely designed this way for one simple reason, circulation. Circulation is so important especially in extreme cold where frostbite can be deadly. Also the space inside creates a nice thermal pocket. They are very comfortable walking in due to so many thick layers plus the rubber giving you a soft cushion like feel. I stood/walked all day on asphalt on day 4, real comfy,soft and flexible! Not one rub spot or soar spot anywhere! Very hard to say about any new shoes/boots. So there is no break in period! Also the traction is awesome.
The only problem I had which most snow boots that I have seen except for the Mickey Mouse boots, is the tops of the foot area. The top of the boot where the rubber meets the fabric. This fabric area around the seam all the way to the first buckles allows a small amount of water to soak through. We hiked through a lot of small running creeks with water up above our ankles. My feet were still warm, but towards the end of the day I can kinda feel moisture on top of my foot. This I can see being an issue if I had to sleep overnight in this stuff. Moisture is the enemy when staving off hypothermia and frostbite. Perhaps a gator that has some flare to it might skirt this whole area. Not the gators with elastic in that area but maybe just a strap that goes all the way around the bottom of the mid-boot and attaches to the opposite side of the gator might help. I'm thinking of maybe fixing this by rubbing a thin coat of 100% rubberized silicone or something around this area. I'm not sure if this will work or not. I now know scotch guard is a waste of time and money, and it did not work at all on my outer shell jacket and ski pants.
But at the end of the day you will be glad you bought these boots. Well worth the money, great value for what they do for you. I will keep these things for ever!
PS. the buckles are real heavy duty. Not a chance on breaking them off.
PSS. Would I buy these before going on an expedition to Antarctica? Maybe, maybe not. They would probably be fine, but toes don't grow back! Safety, research and good equipment is key, the cold is nothing to play around with..
I ordered these boots because people complained how wide they were, and because, on another website, people rated them as having good support. Just recently I ordered a different brand (Canadian, built in Canada) but had to send them right back because they were too tight. I wear size 12 6E, and ordered these boots in 12. They arrived just yesterday, so to this point I have been able to wear them only around the house. But, wearing just a pair of white sox, the boots were plenty wide. I didn't feel that they were too long; my toes were hitting something. It could be that with wear the liner could be pressed farther into the toe of the boot and after that the boots could feel longer. I feel like there is enough room to add another felt insole, though won't know for sure until I try it.
I walk to work, just over a mile each way, and that is one thing I will be using these boots for on cold, cold days. As others have reported, they are large boots, and heavy, so a person probably wouldn't want to walk all day in them (unless it was very cold, and the person had very wide feet and couldn't find any other insulated boot that fit). But these boots are probably best suited to mostly sedentary things like ice fishing. That all being said, I am thrilled to find them, and, after stomping around at home for an hour or so, I feel quite certain that they will work fine for walking a mile or so each way to work and back.
