Early potential ....... not fulfilled!
on 5 March 2011
I bought these boots based on the great reviews just before Christmas as a cheap sheepskin option to alternate with my expensive ones.
Initially, I was delighted. They are real sheepskin (nowhere near as thick as Uggs, but thick enpugh to be warm and comfy) and warm. Although they felt tight the first time I tried them on they stretched within an hour or so to be very comfortable and I was delighted.
I have worn them onced or twice a week since then and already, in just over two months, the heel has started to collapse. I am really disappointed as I had so hoped I had found a cheap alternative to uggs. Instead it seems to have been a costly mistake as they will now be binned shorly. My Uggs are still as good as new and they have been worn quite alot more and are older. Admittedly they are a different style but can it really be that much more expensive to insert a stiffer, more supportive heel reinforcement?
It seems that where sheepskin boots are concerned,the old adage 'buy cheap, buy twice' (or three or four times) rings true. I'll chalk this down to experience and wear them as slippers.
Back to the drawing board....
