Low price for a reason...
on 30 November 2013
I got these boots about 3 weeks ago, they arrived very fast and were well packaged, no complaints there.
The colour was as anticipated. Though not quite the shape of the boot.
I was really hoping the product would fit comfortably as I do a lot of walking and soft soles are definitely a good thing for my feet. These looked like they had similar soles to Dr Martins. (They don't, they are much thinner and poorly padded)
What I also found, was, that the boots were extremely skimped in terms of the width fitting and actually seem to be very narrow where the foot broadens out before the toes. The result of this, is that on my boots, two creases appeared across the top of the boots that actually dig into the top of my feet. I cannot wear thick socks with these boots at all.
I do not have particularly wide feet, nor do I wear wider fitting shoes, and going up a size, is not an answer I find as shoes only seem to get longer, not wider. I am not a skier.
The stitching in places is also of a fairly low quality, thread is already chaffing and showing wear.
But, what also disappoints, is the fact that the heels seem to already be wearing at an alarming rate.
Now, although I like walking, when I first get new shoes, I tend to wear them as "Smart shoes" for a while, then later as comfortable shoes for walking, so really, these shoes have not seen any real service. Thus I am a bit disappointed, even at this reasonable price point.
