Super comfort for rugged types - This boot
is super comfortable and very well made. Holding it in hand,
it's obvious that it's very high quality. My only complaint
would be that I'm not fond of the color combination of the
dark black rubber sole (especially toe area) in contrast to
the rest of the brown boot. I do like that you can fold down
or up the shearling cuff on top. It is warm and the best
part of the boot is that it is comfortable. The shoe laces
ended up being too long for me after tying up... I can see
myself stepping on them and having them unravel. The are not
as bulky as similar Sorrels or Merrells that I've tried on
in store. Not lightweight but not heavy as bricks. Nice
medium weight so you don't feel like you're going to
dislocate an ankle lugging your way through a snow back. I
do like that this is lace up boot versus some winter boots
that are pull on because it bends around the ankle -- the
others are too stiff and not comfortable in this respect.
Overall, I really like this boot. Tops in comfort, warmth
and style (excluding the ugly rubber toe wrap). Laces I will
probable change out for some sporty ones that you don't have
to lace up. Perfect fit otherwise.
My foot has a new home - My foot has a new happy home, and
it is in this boot. Never having owned any Uggs, I was not
prepared for the level of comfort I experienced when I put
my foot inside these. I tried on several pairs, but none of
them, absolutely none of them, felt as wonderful as these.
These boots are warm without being sweaty, soft as a pillow,
and waterproof. The folded over part in the photo can be
unfolded and laced up for those super-snowy adventures. The
soles are high quality - the same as Merrell. They run true
to size - I'm a little larger than a 10, but bought a 10 as
I don't really wear thick socks. My toe is right at the end.
These boots are worth every penny. I expect them to last me
at least a few years, and just as importantly, save my other
shoes from the wear and tear of winter!
