Slim and Snug, But Will Break In Nicely
on 27 November 2012
Managed to grab two pairs of these in the Black Friday Lightening Deals. I got a black pair and a chestnut pair. Only purchased these on Sunday and they arrived today, so very happy with the super fast delivery.
The boots look sturdy and have some substance to them. The suede outer doesn't feel to be top quality like my Whooga boots, but as I only paid £25 a pair then I'm not complaining.. However, I would have been disappointed had I paid the full price.
I ordered my own size rather than a size up (size 7) I'm a small seven and have found they are a slim fitting. The length is fine though. I thought the inner sole was a little thin and could do with a nice lambs wool inner sole inserting. I then found them way too small in width, hoping they break in and stretch a bit so I can add some at a later date.
I also find the heal piece inside to very rigid and I already know from taking a few steps that I'll need to 'plaster' my heels up for the first few times I wear them. I think they'll soften up as I wear them.
The outer sole Is the main reason why I bought these boots. I love my Whooga style Uggs and they keep my feet super warm, but the sole is useless In damp/icy conditions and I slip often In them. From feeling the rubber sole on the Rocket Dogs I'm thinking they'll do the job nicely.
All In all I'm happy with both pairs of Rocket Dogs for the money I paid. If only they had a more fuller/thicker (real fleece lining) and felt to be made of better quality suede, and were a more normal width fitting then I'd be giving these 5 stars.
All that remains to be seen now Is how well they wear and last. Fingers crossed :-)
