I wanted to give a rubber boot a try for mid to late season due to lack of good experiences with other boots not lasting more than a couple seasons before they lost their waterproofness. The Alphaburly has been great so far. The fit is very good. I am an 11.5 and got a 12 due to them not making half sizes and it fits very well. It is tight in the ankle and can make it difficult to get off, but not having laces to secure the boot it has to be this way. This is my first pair of rubber boots and I have not found that they make my feet sweaty any more so compared to other boots. I started to wear a merino wool liner sock with another merino wool sock over them and my feet have stayed warm down into the teens while in the saddle for a few hours. I suspect for colder temperatures I would want more insulation, but I wanted a more versatile boot. They are a little more bulky compared to other boots I have worn in the past, but I don't find them too large or cumbersome. I'm also able to walk on uneven terrain just fine and the traction is phenomenal in snow and icy conditions. The strap on the upper part that tightens them up is great for keeping warmth in and a snug fit and if you need more air flow you can just loosen them up and are still comfortable to walk in. I don't have much on durability as I have only had them for a couple months, but there are no issues so far. I am highly impressed with them for my first rubber boot and would highly recommend for anyone looking for a rubber boot!
