totes Men's Glacier-Zip Winter Boots
lacking support for all day wear
I bought a similar pair of these boots for $30 last year. They were good value and work well in the snow. In the last two weeks I had to work outside all day and it was cold enough I wore these boots to keep my feet warm, which the boots did. These boots do not have the necessary sole support to wear all day if you are not walking on snow. There is no shank or even rigidity to the sole and your foot becomes fatigued and uncomfortable. When there is snow the boot sole gets supported by the compressed snow, no snow no support.

Totes shoots themselves in the foot...
I've had several pairs of Totes Glacier-Zip winter boots before, always warm, comfortable and convenient. They last a couple of seasons, just fine for the price. My newest pair, ordered off-season at a discount, aren't even close to the marked size (9). They are, in fact a good 3/8 inch shorter and narrower than the ones they were ordered to replace. The construction has also changed somewhat, which would suggest to me they might have gone with a different Chinese factory, one with a whole different concept of sizing. As heavy as they are, return shipping cost is throwing good money after bad (no, they don't offer return tags) Why a reputable company would downgrade a successful product is beyond me, but this will definitely be my last pair of Totes footwear.

zipper kept falling, but nice boots otherwise
These boots are still in fine condition, but the zipper keeps falling down, so we ending up purchasing another pair in a different store.
The quality of the boot is decent, but since the zipper stopped working, we couldn't use them.

boots fell apart
These were replacement for stadium boots that fell apart after a few weeks. these also fell apart on the bottom heel area in two places. These and the stadium boots were 60.00 and now they are reduced to half pric e for both pairs. I had two different boots fall apart since june 2013.
