It has been a cold, wet winter here in the PNW and I've been wanting warm feet on my dog walks. I know some of you have the Converse with the fleece lining, but these are a great alternative. Love the zipper for easy on and off, fleece lined, and best of all, Goretex. Plus the comfort of Ecco. They come with alternative laces, FYI, if you don't like the look of the ribbon laces, and come in three colors.
