I ordered these boots on a Monday and got them on a Friday. Great shopping experience. The boots arrived in great shape. There were no issues with quality when I inspected them. They look great. In addition to the RIDER boots I had also purchased a pair of HUNTSMAN boots. Both came in size 10 as ordered. The RIDER boots originally felt really tight, but I looked into winter boot fitting and figured out that the lining is really thick and it needs to break in a bit. Anyway, the size 10 HUNTSMAN boots fit great, and after wearing these RIDER boots for an hour they also fit very nicely.
I took the RIDER boots for a walk this afternoon and they are super comfortable. My feet were SUPER toasty. While it's not too cold right now (about 40F) I can't imagine that these will not keep your feet warm as advertised and rated by Kamik. I have a similar pair of Kamik boots (the CANUCK model) and I've worn them a lot in super deep snow in Vermont, and my feet NEVER get cold or wet in them. These boots are of equal or better quality. The RIDER boots have a great tread, and they also have some padding on the front of the leg (I think for snow machine riding, etc.) Anyway, walking in these boots was great. They are very light, there isn't any pinching or binding, and they are very comfortable. I've got a small bunion on one of my feet and there weren't any issues with that, either.
These boots are great (as are the Kamik CANUCK model). You will not regret owning these boots, or any other Kamik boot, in my opinion. The quality is great, they work as rated and advertised and they are FAR better than boots you might get for a lot more than the cost of Kamik boots. I'm very pleased with this boot, and I'm certain it will perform as good as the CANUCK.
Kamik makes the best winter boot for your winter boot dollar, in my opinion. Most of the Kamik boots are made in North America. It's great to know that Kamik still makes a great quality boot for a very fair price, and that the Kamik purchase you make will keep people working in your own community.
Buy these boots, they're made in North America and you won't find a better deal for great snow/winter boots than Kamik.
