I bought the Merrel Prevoz in black, and have been wearing them all week.

In Switzerland they laughed at -10' and snow, even though I only had tights on underneath. Today, they were lovely and grippy on the ice on our pavements.

I have wide feet and chunky calves, but the lacing adjusts perfectly for that, but they zip up, so no adjusting each time

Am a v happy bunny grin

They jolly well ought to be wonderful for that kind of price ! grin

Me too! They're like little baby eskimo boots!

I like them, they look very toasty.

Hobbittoes, how are you finding the fit of the puffin frost? I am thinking of buying them, just haven't got round to it yet.

these have been linked to on another thread....

ooops, sorry wrong thread. blush

Pips my foot is 4.5 so bought 5's to be sure - wore them today with 1 pair of thin and 1 pair of thick socks - felt a little bit of slippage at the heel, just right at the toe. They were v warm,v comfy, dry and less slippy than any other shoes I own....kind of shorter in height in RL than they look. I love them already and think they will mould to my foot a bit. Will try with 2 x thick socks tomorrow.

I have the same size 4.5, it is tricky, the boots I have just now are a 5 and they slip, but I wouldn't want them to be too tight... Still sounds like you are happy with them.

My Merrel Yarras came today, oh they are so lovely!

I bought a half-size upfrom usual and they fit really well.

hobbittoes Fri 03-Dec-10 17:31:25

Just a litle bit of sockage tweeking required grin...........would like to try the 4's in RL though.........quite fancy the brown.....

They're lovely & look v cosy. I got some waterproof leather Ecco boots but don't want to wear them in all this snow as don't want them yukky & marked with salt [fbush], am praying weather gets warmer, rain would be fine!

ImeldaM Fri 03-Dec-10 17:37:04

Oops was meant to be blush not [fbush]!

Ahhh, I could have started this thread... never had such perfectly practical and fab boots! Warm and dry feet, no slipping in the ice, and can get them on easily... Oh yeah, they look chunkily good too.

(though mine are syntheticky and fake fur snowboots and cost me £18 from the High St... grin)

I also have the Merrell Yarras (early xmas pressie from my mum] and I love love love them.

A stylish alternative to Uggs that actually support your feet and ankles.

Warm and toasty out in playground snow!!

I have got the merrell puffin- they are lovely and warm and fit around my little tree trunk legs.

ssd Fri 03-Dec-10 18:08:28

adair. please tell me where you got yours , your budget sounds more like mine!

alittlebitshy Fri 03-Dec-10 18:30:52

OOH toughas do they really fit chunky legs?
I love the look of them but when i went in to a shop to buy wellies - wellies ffs the lady had the pull them off my fat legs and it felt like the circulation was being cut off blush.

alittlebitshy Fri 03-Dec-10 18:32:06

oh and how high up the leg do they come? (puffins)

Adair Fri 03-Dec-10 18:32:52

grin I know, am well smug. And it means I am not worried about trashing them either.

They were from Risky on the High Street - I suspect many cheap shoe shops would have something similar, was v doubtful they would actually be waterproof but they are great. And light too. I just had to bite the bullet and go and try loads on (our local shopping centre/market is great for cheap stuff - not so good for luxury/quality).

Toughasoldboots Fri 03-Dec-10 18:33:55

They only come up to upper shin ( that make sense?) and no fear- if they fit my chunkers, they will fit anyone.
