Hoof bleeders - great minus one big flaw
on November 6, 2014
Okay, so I totally would have given these things a 5 star review, if it wasnt for one kinda important flaw. I generally wear a 12 shoe, but go up sometimes due to a slightly wider toe box. Off the bat they fit awesome at a 12, plenty of room, warm but not too hot, the lining is great, they look fantastic, and compared to the 2x more expensive UGGS I have been buying through the years, I love these more. Design is great, but one stupid move totally blows this shoe for me – they decided to connect the seam in the dead center of the back, leaving a very hard knot of glue/thread/plastic right where it touches the heel/tendon area.
What a dumb move! While I was initially thrilled to wear these outside thanks to the dope rugged soles, after 10 blocks these things chewed right through the back of my foot, leaving the shoe blood stained (Im not a pansy, I finished the walk). I ended up using a straight razor to shave off this area to avoid this issue in the future, but that experience was so unnecessary – I am a dude wearing slippers, not a chick wearing a new pair of heels.
Putting the seam a half an inch off center or softening the back somehow would have easily made this shoe a lifelong go to for me, versus a salvage arts n' crafts project.
