I have the steel toes for work and also have the soft toes. Mine seem to rub my heals were the rubber and leather meet. They do not come in half sizes, so mine are a little big. They do not seem to be very warm, but do keep your feet dry. Make sure to dry the liners every night you wear them. They are also very heavy. Overall, they are a pretty decent boot. I would like to try some Schnees to compare.
