These were in the ladies section in store, and I am so glad they were. On a week long mountain expedition they kept my feet comfortable and dry. I like the extra lace loop which really holds your foot into the boot, the grip is fantastic and they were truly waterproof! I crossed a lot of boggy terrain and my feet were dry inside. They were a little bit slippery on wet rocks, but other than that I absolutely loved them. I do have fairly wide feet, so unlike some of the other women's boots, these fitted really well. I would highly recommend them to anyone, male or female.
