Very Unique Shoe...I Love Them!
on October 5, 2012
I was hoping these were a "shoe" and not look like a slipper since I plan on wearing them when I'm out and about this winter. They're definately a SHOE, not a slipper. Doesn't look at all like slippers. They're comfortable and warm. I was a bit concerned after reading the reviews that they might run small...I didn't find that to be true. I'm tall and I wear a size 10 and these shoes ran true to size. My foot width is between a medium and a wide and these are a comfortable fit. They have a thick lining that feels really warm and soft and I don't see a reason one would need to wear thick socks with these, but if you prefer thick socks, these will probably feel snug, unless you wear a narrow shoe size. The style: Think the traditional Sketcher clog like this but with a Doc Martin rugged sole, which is what makes them look nothing like a slipper. They initially feel a little heavy after wearing sandals all summer, but after a couple of minutes of walking in them I naturally adjusted to the weight and feel of them. The sole is soft, rubbery and grips, not that hard plastic that's slippery when it cold, wet or icy out. The sole is 1.5" at the toe and 2" at the heel. I measured because it actually looks chunkier than that, but the thickness was as described in the shoe details. The inner is a soft furry lining that feels like excellent quality acrylic and the upper is made of smooth tightly tanned leather suede. I have used the spray water-proofing on this type of shoe leather before with great results so I will most likely do the same with these...Almost a must if you live in the wintery snow belt to protect from all the salt. (A couple of light mistings, drying between each misting works really well). They're comfortable and fashionable, will go with jeans, yoga pants, active wear and slacks. I'm super pleased with these and will probably order another pair in a different color.
Update: In just the few days I've been wearing these, I've gotten multiple compliments and requests for where they could be found, so get them quick before they're sold out!
