Wow! What a Surprise
on January 20, 2012
I've been watching these on line for months to see the feedback. I two pair of the older low top slip-ons (size 13 is the largest they run) that are now pretty worn. I wanted a taller boot, but didn't want to spend $90, and wasn't sure how a size 14 would fit (my normal shoe size) since several comments indicated they run smaller. I'm a retired firefighter, and have never worn a pair of boots that really fit well and that didn't give me blisters. These fit well and don't cause blisters!
I am totally blown away by these shoes. They arrived the morning of the big Pacific Northwest snow storm and I ended up wearing them throughout the storm. They are incredibly comfortable, have great traction, stay dry, and most of all, are very well constructed. They have larger finger pulls on the front and back of the boot, which makes it pretty easy to put them on. What I like most about these boots is, they really slip on easy, allowing me to do a quick change from slippers or shoes to boots. I can kick off a pair of shoes and slip into these without using the pulls.
Why working on rugged ice during the storm, I never felt the bumpy ice clumps, never got cold, and didn't slide around like I've done with other types of shoes. I could even drive in them without any issues, which is difficult with most boots. I'll be buying another pair.
I have large feet, and have had several injuries to my feet and toes over the years. It is very hard for me to find any type of shoe that fits comfortable. These are probably the most comfortable shoes/boots I have worn in years. They are worth every dollar. I'm very satisfied with this vendor and the manufacturer.
