I made them work

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wear size 49 shoes and have a terrible time finding full booties that fit. I bought these cause it was getting cold and I had to have something. These are meant for wear in temps of about 40F to 50F, cool to chilly, but not cold. In this range, they're pretty awesome. I used the down to the mid 20's with 2 toe warmers on each foot, and they were better than nothing, but not great. My shoes have worn holes in the bottom fabric at the toes too, more my fault, I think. Just be realistic about what these are meant for and you will be happy. Also, remember that 40F to someone who lives in the midwest is much different that to someone who lives in a warmer climate like the south.
