The term fur generally refers to the thick coat of soft hair that covers the skin of some animals, which is used in the making of garments as trimming decoration or as lining in footwear. Most recently, out of concern and protection towards animals, faux fur has been developed from synthetic fibers to resemble very closely natural fur and still maintains the same properties of softness and warmth.
About Rain Boots:
Rain boots are boots suited to protect feet from inclement weather. Rain boots are waterproof and made from either rubber or other equivalents. Gore-tex, one of the latest materials used for rain boots, is completely waterproof. Rain boots are usually knee-high, but are also available low cut, just above the ankle, or high cut, all the way up to the thigh. Rain boots can also be used for snow, mud, and chemical waste because they provide protection, dryness, and warmth. Many rain boots are made with inner liners of flannel or other warm materials for use in cold weather.

I have worn these boots only a few times in the rain and snow. They feel warm and comfortable. So far I am very pleased with my purchase.

I think this boot will be functional for the few times a year that it rains in the desert (no chance to check that out yet), and it's very cute and quite comfortable. The tongue has a somewhat odd configuration making it challenging to lace up symmetrically but the lacing system is quick and easy. Between the style "Spring Step Sweden" and the brand touting its European design, I felt a little misled - the box says the boots are made in China.
