A+, very tough boots.
Russell worked w/me to make them fit; I have very hard feet to fit. Kudos for them for that.
Have used them for shoveling snow on three occasions when snow was over two feet deep, had no issues w/waterproofing. Note: I do wash them thoroughly w/saddle soap and triple seal them with Obenauf's every spring.
I've had them for six years now, they did stretch a bit, have to wear two pairs of really thick socks to fit now, but that's okay as I wear them 90% of the time in cold weather.
I have not been bitten by any snakes yet, and have not gone out of my way to do so, so "snakeproofness" is yet to be tested. The "turtle skin" innards look pretty darn tough to me, though.

Just got my boots and they feel like I've worn them for a year! Exactly what I expected. Can't wait to start wearing them out!
