Great boot but does run a little small
on February 21, 2009
I love these boots! My feet stay warm and dry (something that my old rainboots failed to do-go figure!) and I like the simple classic look. They have nice cushy support on the inside and a thick sole so walking around on rocks isn't a pain. My only complaint is they run a little small. My old rainboots were a size 6 and I had to wear 2 pairs of socks and add a thick cushioned insole and I still clomped around like a kid wearing mommies shoes. The size 6 Bogs were so snug that I had to switch to a pair of thin cashmere socks or no socks at all. The length seems fine but the toe box seems snug. I think I have a wide foot and luckily switching to thin socks was all I needed to do. But if you have a wide foot or usually wear a half size, I would order the next larger size.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT THESE THE TOE BOX WAS A LITTLE SNUG (SEE ABOVE) WELL MUCH TO MY SURPRISE THEY STRETCH A LITTLE. THEY NOW FIT PERFECT AND THEY ARE THE MUST COMFORTABLE BOOTS I HAVE EVER WORN IN MY LIFE. MY HUSBAND CALLS THEM MY "STORM TROOPER BOOTS" (STAR WARS REFERENCE) OR ELSE I WOULD BUY A "CLEAN" PAIR TO WEAR WITH MY JEANS. I'VE BEEN TRAMPING AROUND IN THE MUD WITH MINE SO I DON'T WEAR THEM INSIDE MUCH BUT THEY STILL DON'T HOLD AS MUCH MUD IN THE TREADS AS MY HIKING BOOTS DO SO THEY ARE EASY TO CLEAN OFF. IF I COULD CHANGE MY RATING I WOULD GIVE THEM 5+ STARS!!!!
