How are these in the snow? Do they keep you feet relatively warm and dry? I want a pair of boots for 3-season hiking and shoveling snow in the winter.
I've had these boots for a couple of winters now and they are wonderful. I bought them right before the DC Snowmageddon (1.5 to 2 feet of snow on 2 different occasions) and wore them all throughout the blizzards and the cleanup...My feet never got wet. They've also been through some rainy, snowy, and frigid football games (to include 8 hours of tailgating), and my feet stayed dry. And even for not being insulated my feet stay pretty warm. Just put on a pair of wool socks and you'll be fine. I've even used these for hiking in the summer and they performed great then, too. Overall I would absolutely recommend these boots.
Yes, these are great boots. I have hiked for two hours in the snow and they have kept my feet warm and dry. The boots also have a great sole for tracttion. They are a lot of boot for the money. I just hope that they keep making them so that I can buy another pair when the boots I have wear out.
with a pair of wool socks on my toes get a little numb after about 4 hours of being out side. I keep mink oil on them and have never had wet feet
Andrew, My husband is on his 3rd pair and loves this boot. He is a compliance inspector for a power company and wears these when he does not have to climb the poles. We live in a fair-weather climate, so this info does not completely address your question, but we do go to the snow during ski season and he just puts snow seal on the boots. He is away right now on assignment, wearing these boots!
As long as the water does not come up over the top these boots are not only comfortable but DO remain dry. If there is any small complaint is that in warm weather, unless you are wearing wicking socks, these can get fairly too warm. I have two pairs of these and love them. I would not consider any other brand of boots other than Timberland.

I have been using these boots, (bought multiple pairs), for about 8 years now. They are very good in the snow, however you may need to snow proof them every once in a while. They keep my feet warm and dry. They are very comfortable and I like thaat i can get a wide size. I would highly recommend these boots. I do a ton of trail hiking while birding all year long.
They are gore-tex, so your feet will stay dry. I used these to walk a short distance to work and they stayed dry in deep snow as well as slush and puddles. However, they don't have any insulation, so they won't keep your feet warm during extended periods in very cold weather. I would reccomend wool socks with these boots, during any season.
