BEST WINTER BOOTS! First, I have to commend
Zappos--I ordered these late Friday night and received them
Monday afternoon, which is nice as I really needed them.
Second, these boots are ridiculously WARM. Not having winter
boots before, I'd been wearing rain boots plus 3 pairs of
socks and still had cold toes. With these, my feet are
toasty outside and almost sweating as soon as I walk
indoors. These are also much more lightweight than other
boots I had tried on, which makes walking easier. Wish they
had a bit more arch support, and they're cute for snow boots
but not for shoes in general (I'd always rather be in
sandals!). I'm usually a size 11 but I ordered a size 12 as
that seemed to be the recommendation, and I'm glad I did.
The boots are just the right amount of roomy, which is good
because I think I might need to put on a pair of socks or
two once it gets to below zero here in Chicago. Overall, I'm
really happy I bought these!
LOVE THESE BOOTS!! I originally ordered color Zephyr, but
when exchanging for a different size I had to get Otter, and
I'm so glad I did! I had been afraid they may be too
"orange" but they are slightly darker than the picture, and
I love them! These run very slightly larger than marked. I
wear a 6.5 normally, and wear a 5 in UGG classics/ultra. I
ordered a size 7 based on reviews, but they felt sloppy with
bare feet, and perfect with socks. I now have a size 6 and
they fit perfect with bare feet!! The sheepskin is nice and
snug around my ankle and gives good support. I ordered them
at 4:20pm Pacific time yesterday, and just received them at
1:30pm today...and they were shipped from Kentucky!! Thanks
ZAPPOS, you continue to amaze me!!
Where do my socks go? Overall, this is a comfortable, warm,
waterproof boot. What I don't like about it is that my socks
keep slipping down when I walk. UGG. I hate that! I tried
wearing it sockless on a 2 mile walk, but I got a blister
because the upper shearling is FAKE and there is a definite
line between the real shearling in the footbed and the fake
stuff, which just doesn't feel as good. However, for a boot,
I can wear thick socks, so the size is excellent.
