I loved the fit and comfort and function, but almost gave them up because they're so hard to get ON. Here's the tool. I believe it's a Fiskars brand, dull edged hand spade. Makes it a breeze with socks on.
Edit: Yes, it was part of a Fiskars 3-Piece Softtouch Tool Set.
These are nearly perfect! Just wore them today in a typical Florida downpour.
1. COMPLETELY waterproof! I even deliberately stepped in multiple BIG puddles. Stayed totally dry.
2. So adorable! I've attached a pic of my feet wearing them :-) I've always wanted short boots and these are so cute that I could wear them with pants and not just in the rain.
3. I have terrible foot problems and am very, very limited on shoes I can wear. My heels are narrow and the front wider. These look like they come to a more pointed front, but they are very roomy. Also not hard and my feet are incredibly sensitive.
4. DEFINITELY get a 1/2 size up if you are in-between. I am generally 8.5 and I got the 9. I do have to wear a thick sock and it's still on the looser side. But I'm not at all sliding out of it.
They weigh a LOT! It's like wearing weights on your feet. In fact, my hip started hurting a bit, but I am hoping I will get used to them.
A high quality product at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend
I bought these ankle boots specifically for a 15 mile hike over muddy and steep terrain @ 40°F. A little water popped in over the top when I landed too hard in a deep puddle (user error), but my feet stayed dry beyond expectation. I wear 9.5 but sized up to 10 and had no issues getting the boots on or off, and the width fit my wide foot perfectly out of the box. I appreciated the lightweight construction and inside liner. I would have preferred a different pattern. My only regret is accidentally leaving them behind.
Love these - they are comfy, cute, the perfect length for hot days and are very durable! In fact they are piglet proof! Piglets have sharp little needle teeth and these boots survived multiple mass piglet attacks! 10/10 would recommend!
These boots have a lot to like! Nub on back of the heal for easy off. Tab on back of ankle to help pull on. Bright pretty look made from printed fabric behind clear shell. Quality materials and sealed seams - this is a step up from your average rain boots. Sadly I will be returning because I do not like the angled toe box. If you have worn pointy shoes and your foot already has taken that shape - well these are cute and will work fine. I have worn European style healthy box toe shoes all my life and it's very uncomfortable to have my big toe pushed in. I only recently wore similar shoes for a few months and noticed that the shape of my foot was changing and I am very upset. It's a shame to have great looking healthy feet, only to have them changed by a poor shoe choice.
I love them. I’m a 9, perfect fit and I can also wear some socks, easy to wear because there is a small black elastic band in the front on the top look at the picture. Also very cute model and colors. I wanted them in blue but they are out of stock . ????
I liked how they felt on my foot, but the black elastic on the front of boot was not water proof and the stitching ripped, and the glue let go the second time I put them on.
I was pleased to see they were made in USA, but the quality was no better than an import. I am having these replaced in case it was an isolated problem.
The backs of both of my shoes split to the pull-on tab. Since it's both, I imagine it's a design/craftsmanship flaw and not an anomaly. I don't wear them for much, just to take my dogs potty, so they haven't been abused in the few weeks I have owned them. Disappointed.
I bought these when it was raining because I had no boots to wear on campus. It hasn't rained since I bought these and the first time I was going to put them on they were ripped. I put one shoe on when I got them and that was it. And now it's outside of the return date and I haven't worn them.
On the third day I wore these shoes, the elastic in the front tire away from the rubber boot making it too looses to walk well.
