I got these boots with colder weather in mind, and I'm happy they hold up for that. The material is a lot less sturdy than I thought it would be, but the quality is still great. The boot seems to run slightly larger than normal, and I potentially could have gone a size down because the toe seems like it would have been long enough, but I still enjoy wearing the boots. To make up for the extra space I just wear thicker socks and I've never had problems.
When it comes to cleaning and damage they hold up just fine. I've only had to wipe them off a few times and the fuzzy texture is pretty easily managed, but I'd be careful scuffing them. Very lovely boots though, definitely recommend if you're thinking on getting them!
