I'm eyeing up these boots and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them, or Rocket Dog in general. I have very slim legs so struggle with non fitted for me (think Ted and Muffy) boots but want something more casual cheaper to wear over skinny jeans and thick tights. Would anyone happen to know if these are reasonably normal fitting, wider or slimmer?
Rocket dog always come up quite wide fitting ime and while they look good, they aren't the quality that the price would suggest. I do like them though, have had loads, but they don't last more than a season.
Not sure about these ones but I have a million pairs of rocket dog boots and shoes and pumps as they mound to my feet. I'm a size 5 foot quite flat footed so a little wide but not to bad. I can also get my cankles in rocket dogs. I don't have massive lower calves but they've never been a tight uncomfortable fit nor have they been too loose and floppy. Loves rocket dogs I do
I had those boots, loved them and wore them to death... but within 9 months. Got another pair and the same happened. You could get them reheeled by a cobbler before wearing then though - a good sole would massively extend their life and not tripping up constantly so the pretend leather wears off the toes.
I have several pairs of Rocket Dogs - not that style, mine are suede - they get worn day in and day out and still look great. Love them. As for size, I have widish feet but slim ankles and legs and they fit me well.
I highly recommend fly London boots. My rocket dogs wore through very quickly. I'm 2 years into my fly London boots now, I wear them at least once a week spring and summer and then daily to work and socialise autumn/winter. They are comfy, look good and seem to last without even looking worn. I love them!
Ive got those boots, they're super comfy. They are probably a half size bigger than I need but it's not a problem. I've got skinny legs and they're ok on me, I suppose because they're meant to look slouchy.
