I love them
Comments about Duck:
Work on a Horse ranch in the rain, mud, wet sand, manure, and do a lot of walking. These boots keep my feet dry and warm. The quality is yet to be determined. I will see how long they last. But from the looks of the leather, stitching, rubber, soft foot bed, and upper insulation it looks to be a good functional and stylish shoe.

Q:Are these any good for the snow? Are they lined well?
A:The Duck boot is waterproof and seam sealed with insulation and faux shearling for warmth. I'd say these should be good for wearing in snow.
Q:Are these boots slip resistant?
A:The outsole of the Duck boot is very good for walking on snow and ice. It is not considered to be a 'slip resistant' outsole if that is needed for a workplace requirement.
Q:I see that there are no half sizes. I know some people who have ordered these said going up the half size it too big, but down is too tight. Is there any guideline you have that would help in suggesting whether to order up or down. I wear an 8.5.
A:I would still recommend going up to the next higher whole size in this boot. You can always add an extra insole or gel heel cup, or just wear thick socks to make up some of the size.
Q:I just got these boots today. After wearing only 5 mins, the bones on both sides of my ankles are killing me. The big bump from the folded gusset in the tongue (both sides) is the culprit. Before I send them back, is there anything that can be done?
A:If the gusset is a bother, you could try a couple of things to get it out of your way. One is to fold the gusset flaps the other way so they rest on the outer side of the tongue - they'll still be there, but they won't be directly pressing against your ankles. The other thing is to cut the gussets out - if you don't feel like they're needed for waterproofing or insulation, they can be removed so you just have a regular tongue.
Q:The gusset tongue in my new duck boots is hurting my ankles. Is there a way too soften it up?
A:The leather in the tongue should soften up with a little wear - you can apply a leather lotion or leather oil to the stiffer parts of the tongue to help it soften, and that should help these to loosen up a bit.
