Buttons popping off after 2-3 days is recurring issue amongst reviewers!
on December 12, 2013
I read the reviews prior to purchasing and knew going into this I would likely be sewing buttons back on...well, 3 days into wearing them, both the left boot button fell off. The buttons on each boot are connected by a single thread so when one comes off, the other will follow shortly thereafter. They use black thread on the brown boots so it's a simple fix with a needle and thread and it WAS noticeably loose on the left boot upon delivery. With the added pressure from the elastic fixtures that attach to buttons for ankle stretch, it's a design flaw perhaps that needs to be remedied with heavy duty thread.
Another issue with these boots is that I normally wear a solid size 9, but I had to order an 11 in these due to the thickness of the wool lining. I normally would order a size 10 with fur lined boots but this brand runs small so ORDER 2 SIZES LARGER than your normal for the best fit.
Other than the above mentioned issues, these boots are ADORABLE! I have received many compliments and find them to be very comfortable as well. I plan to sew down the upper edge to make an outer fur lined edging on top of the boots at the rim since I have to sew on the buttons anyways. I did order BOTH colors available and I anticipated the pink/white ones were going to be too difficult to spot clean since these are sheepskin and wool inners.
