- very happy
I don't normally post reviews, but another review mentioned the ankle being too wide and unflattering and that is NOT the case at all. These are super cute but I'm a function over form kind of girl and these do not disappoint. They are extremely comfortable and very grippy. I've walked miles in the icy NY sludge without slipping or getting a blister. It's not aggressively roomy in the ankle at all. In fact, I had to unzip to even get my foot in there, but maybe I just have fat ankles. There's a little bit of space so that you can comfortably wear jeans over thicker socks if you want because who wants a skintight rainboot anyways.
These boots look cute from the sides, but looking straight on they make my ankles look very thick. They're fairly unflattering, but seem to work well in the rain. The insides are impressively comfy, but the boots don't hold on very well at the ankle (because they're so wide). Perhaps I should have sized down, but I don't think my toes would've been happy about that. Also, I expected to be able to tighten the straps — but they don't actually tighten. Overall, I'm disappointed with how much I spent on these cute, unflattering boots. I'll wear them this winter, but I'm already looking forward to replacing them with something better fitting.
