I bought these for my husband, who has chronically cold feet. He finds them to be the warmest he has ever found. He really like the foam footpad - much warmer than others he's had - and softer on the foot, too. Sturdy enough to wear to the mailbox, but comfortable enuf to wear inside all day. The upper has a cloth cuff that runs down inside the bootie, providing a softer feel and added warmth.

Sierra Designs knows their down booties
This is my second pair of Sierra Design down booties. I once wore a pair completely to death. To this day I'm not sure what happened to them. I can't imagine I threw them away. These new booties are even better than the ones I had before. They have a better, tougher sole. I've used them a couple of weeks now and they show no wear on the bottoms from being worn all day around the house. I have every confidence they will last another 5 years at least. They are warm without being sweaty. I can keep them on until it really is warm enough to do without them. I use a light cotton sock as a liner. There is an elastic band around the ankle that keeps them on that was a little irritating at first, but now I don't notice it. Maybe it breaks in. There is an adjustable closing at the top that I don't use and don't imagine I ever will, but I'm glad to see it there anyway. If I were to do it again, I might go to their next fancier bootie, just because they are bound to be even better.

I bought these primarily to keep my feet warm around the house and they do that well. In fact, I sometimes have to pull them off about once and hour because my feet get sweaty in my socks. I think they run small in length. I wear a size 11 and the extra large fits me well, have a hard time believing a size 13 could wear the same size without stretching the material lengthwise but could be wrong. The sole material material looks like some kind of heavy ballistic cloth with rubber traction dots. If my soles show wear on the fabric, some shoe goo ought to make them last forever. The inner sole does not compress much, I don't think there is much insulation under foot. I haven't snow camped in them yet, but the draw string around the top should keep the snow from dropping into the bootie on a quick trip outside.

I love these. I got them to wear around the house in the winter and to put on when camping on cold days. I have yet to take them camping but they keep my feet toasty in the house. My feet are warmer in these then in Uggs. The only thing negative that I can say is that they appear to run a little small. I'm a size 10.5-11 and my toes are a little crunched in the large size but I can deal with it.
