I got these one sale for $40 on altrec...what a deal! They fit nicely (true to size) and indeed are streamlined--I am quite surprised about how light, warm, and un-cumbersome they are. That being said, I use them in Tahoe where it's usually over 20 degrees so I don't need a super warm boot. Personally, I cant imagine paying $80 for these--looks like Merrel might make a better boot in this price range? I don't have any problems with the lacing in the back, and no problems getting into the boot with a high arch. Happy with my roasty toasty feet...

This is a great boot, comfortable, lightweight but surprisingly warm. Besides they look good too. The downside is the lacing at the back but it seems to loosen up a little after several wearings and it then becomes easier to get the boot on.

Sporty, Comfortable Boots
I am very pleased with these boots. I normally wear a size 10 or a 10.5 in some running/athletic shoes. I ordered the 10.5 in these boots which left me some room for a thick sock. I probably could have gotten away with a 10 but I'm fine with wearing a thicker sock. They're more streamlined looking than I thought they'd be- they don't look overly big even on my foot :) I've read elsewhere that they work great on a narrow foot; my foot is not narrow and they're very comfortable for me too. They don't have a zipper but I still found them relatively easy to get on. The lacing at the back allows them to open up slightly to put your foot in. However, I could see a problem getting them on for someone with a high instep. Overall, a comfortable, cute and sporty looking boot that will keep my feet warm and dry all winter long. I definitely recommend them.

Look and feel great
Finally got them in the snow, and they did their job. Easy to get on, they look funky and feel good. Warn toes with one pair of winter socks.

Waiting for real snow, but feels great
Funky boots that really keep your feet warm. I haven't plunged them into drifts yet, but trust Colombia to make a hardy boot. Great deal from Altrec!
