These seem very sturdy and durable, boots I will have for years. Thick sole gives good support, but did get a little sore after walking a long distance due to the heel height. Bought my usual size, but too tight to wear thick socks with. Going to keep them and just wear regular socks, but consider sizing up at least half a size if you want to wear thick socks. Got compliments the first time I wore them.

I love these boots. I was looking for something warm, that could be worn in the winter weather, but not snow boots. These are incredibly warm and we’re comfortable as soon as I put them on. The lace up style makes them very customizable for fit. And, I ordered black and the red laces really make them pop. Sometimes I order up a half size in a boot, but after reading other reviews I ordered my normal size 8.5 and it fits perfectly with room for thick socks. They are somewhat of a rigid fit, but I like it because they make me feel stable even in the elements!

These are adorable - I wore them hiking/ziplining in Costa Rica up in the mountains, where the temps were around the high 60s/low 70s, and they were not too hot. They are very comfortable - I wore them for a whole day brand new without having broken them in ahead of time and did not get any blisters.

I don’t normally do reviews but these boots are really exceptional. Extremely comfortable, warm, stylish but not trendy. Really a classic boot. Normally only 1 in 5 pairs of shoes I order work for me. I’m an 8 1/2 and put these on and pretty much only have taken them off to sleep.

Fit, size and feel were good out of the box. Warm but breath. Light on feet. There is arch support that was somewhat uncomfortable but I'm still breaking them in waiting for the snow...

I liked these boots but they hurt my feet. They were quite stiff, and around the heel I could feel the seam rubbing. With very thick socks the rubbing was tolerable but then they were a little too tight. I wore them while I wrapped a few presents and they got more uncomfortable the longer I had them on. I believe the cushioning underfoot was insufficient.

Fit perfectly, comfortable to walk in, and look great! They seem really durable and I think they will last a long time.

This is a really high quality boot. You will be warm, avoid slipping, and looks stylish wearing it. However, it's fairly narrow for the size, especially when wearing winter socks. I had to return my pair, to my disappointment.

Nothing practical about the boot was right. I ordered the green, they were more tan. The size was at least a size smaller than the 8.5 I ordered. I could not get them on. Won't try Kodiak again. Nice looking is all I can say.

Nice looking boot but I could not even get it on to try it. One full size too small if you ask me.

I bike commute to work and was looking for a boot that would keep my toes warm in the headwinds but that I could also wear to work. These are great. The style is cute enough that I wore them with a dress and tights all day today in my business casual office. They also look great with jeans. They are warm and held off the wind during my ride but not so warm I couldn't wear them inside all day. I like that they are a bit warmer than a regular boot but not clunky like snow boots. The fit is true to size, perhaps just a share on the large and wide side. I am normally a 9.5 and have a narrow foot. This feels a little loose in the heel and ankle but not surprising for a chelsea style boot and nothing that gets in the way of wearing them. A great all around stylish cold weather boot.
