I bought a pair of these Servus rubber boots to take on a trip up the Allagash in late September, and have been using them ever since. I have a wide foot (10.5 EEE) and ordered them a size up (11) so that there would be room for a pair (or two) of wool socks. I've used them in temperatures from the mid-30s up to the mid-70s. I find them quite comfortable sitting or kneeling in the canoe all day or walking short distances (I haven't had to walk in them more than a couple of hundred yards and I'm not sure I'd recommend them for long portages needing a lot of ankle support). They are great for getting in and out of the canoe in shallow water. And if you over-top them, just poor 'em out, wipe 'em dry. You won't have to worry about putting on a cold, wet shoe/boot the next morning. It remains to be seen how many season I will get out of them, but for $20, I recommend them!
