Tight at the calf
on 30 November 2013
I ordered a size up based on the reviews - only whole sizes were available, and really I think I only needed a half size up. I am normally a 6, I got a 7 and the heel slips a great deal when I walk. But I can see that a 6 would have been too small. No idea why retailers insist on only creating whole sizes. Anyway... they are well made, lightweight and warm. However I have muscular calves and these are too tight right at the top. It would have been better if you had control over the drawstring at the top in order to tighten them. Instead they are drawn in already, and then sewn shut, so you can't loosen them. Not good. They still go on, but it's just that bit uncomfortable and especially if I am wearing jeans.
So.. nice boots in theory but sizing is wonky and top of the boot could be too tight for somebody as well as me.
