I bought this winter boots last weekend at Deichmann's. I didn't plan it, but when I've tried them, I didn't have much choice. They're incredibly warm, have fake fur and rubber soles, so it shouldn't be cold walking in them. The boots are not too high, till the middle of the calf. Although the heel is quit high, I have the balance so I can walk in them without a problem. Snow and winter may now come .
