Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bearpaw Women's Sasha Fur Trimmed Boot (Apparel)
Well, I actually had an issue with these boots: the sizing.
The other reviews did not give details about it so I was bothered, and even though one reviewer commented that she "ordered a size larger than I needed as I saw this recommended online.", recommended where online? For this pair in particular or the brand BearPaw boots in general? or even shoes online as a whole? I'm certain this helped other persons but it was too vague for me considering I had never bought this type of boot before nor even tried them in store or anything. I needed more details. I kept on re-reading her review without getting to a decision.
In the end, I just decided to let it go using the high price as an excuse, but then, the price went down a lot: down to £28.7!! an EXCELLENT price! So I did what I should have done since day 1: I went to the official website of BearPaw to look for information, and found what I was looking for real fast: for pretty much all their boots from what I could see, they wrote in red: "Tip: Order 1 size up, see size chart for details." > me going to see size chart > new msg: "BEARPAW products have an inner lining that makes them fit a size smaller. We recommend ordering a size larger than your typical shoe size. If you are in-between sizes, we recommend ordering up one-half size.", then you've got a table with US, Euro, UK, Cm and Inches equivalents, just perfect! :) I recommend you go check on it!
And so, I ordered 1 size bigger than usual and the fit is perfect, they can't be worn with tick socks, but to start with they are very warm because of the lining so they are not needed.
My 'error' is not expecting them to be so warm though. I didn't take the whole tick inner lining seriously enough.
I live in Spain, and even though we obviously have our cold days, this is not the kind of shoes I will be wearing often, they will be usable only on the coldest days of the year, which won't be that many.
But the price was so good, and they are so cute, comfortable and good quality that I have no regret! The chocolate color is sweet~ But they are definitely directed to people who lives in northern countries and suffer from colder weather.
The sole seems tick but I'm not sure how it would go if worn in snow or rain though.
