Pips my foot is 4.5 so bought 5's to be sure - wore them today with 1 pair of thin and 1 pair of thick socks - felt a little bit of slippage at the heel, just right at the toe. They were v warm,v comfy, dry and less slippy than any other shoes I own....kind of shorter in height in RL than they look. I love them already and think they will mould to my foot a bit. Will try with 2 x thick socks tomorrow.
They're lovely & look v cosy. I got some waterproof leather Ecco boots but don't want to wear them in all this snow as don't want them yukky & marked with salt [fbush], am praying weather gets warmer, rain would be fine!
Ahhh, I could have started this thread... never had such perfectly practical and fab boots! Warm and dry feet, no slipping in the ice, and can get them on easily... Oh yeah, they look chunkily good too.
(though mine are syntheticky and fake fur snowboots and cost me £18 from the High St... )
OOH toughas do they really fit chunky legs? I love the look of them but when i went in to a shop to buy wellies - wellies ffs the lady had the pull them off my fat legs and it felt like the circulation was being cut off .
I know, am well smug. And it means I am not worried about trashing them either.
They were from Risky on the High Street - I suspect many cheap shoe shops would have something similar, was v doubtful they would actually be waterproof but they are great. And light too. I just had to bite the bullet and go and try loads on (our local shopping centre/market is great for cheap stuff - not so good for luxury/quality).
