<3 MY YUMMY MARSHMALLOW-BOOTS!!! :)

Reviewed by BOOT-ADDICT-GRETCH!! :) from NOR-CAL!! on Wednesday, October 3, 2012
YUP...I BOUGHT THESE BABIES 'CAUSE I LOOOVE SHEEPSKIN BOOTS--AND CHEAP DISCOUNTS! THE PRICE IS EVEN LESS NOW THAN WHEN I PURCHASED THEM LAST YEAR, BUT IT'S ABOUT WHAT I PAID AFTER USING MY 20%-OFF COUPON-CODE. :)

I HAVE BOTH THE TALL AND THE SHORT VERSIONS OF THESE ACORN BOOTS. THEY SEEM TO BE HOLDING-UP FINE, AND I'VE WORN THEM QUITE A LOT. I SUPPOSE THE PEOPLE WHO HAD NEGATIVE REVIEWS JUST GOT A BAD PAIR. HOWEVER, I DID NOTICE INCONSISTENCIES IN THE QUALITY OF ONE BOOT FROM ANOTHER, AND I HAD TO RETURN THE SHORT ONES FOR A REPLACEMENT FOR THIS REASON...THE SHEEPSKIN IS NOT ALWAYS THE SAME THICKNESS ON BOTH BOOTS, OR ONE BOOT MAY FEEL LARGER THAN THE OTHER, ETC. (MY TALL PAIR HAD NO MAJOR DIFFERENCES IN WORKMANSHIP WHEN I RECEIVED THEM.) OVERALL, THEY HAVE SO-FAR BEEN GOOD TO ME!

NOW, I WILL SAY THAT THESE ARE QUITE WIDE AND ODD-FITTING, IF ONE IS USED-TO WEARING SNUG SHEEPSKIN FOOTWEAR. I HAPPEN TO WEAR THESE PARTICULAR BOOTS WITH ANKLE-SOCKS MOST OF THE TIME, EXCEPT WHEN I'M USING THEM AS SLIPPERS AROUND THE HOUSE. SO, I'M NOT REALLY BOTHERED BY THE LOOSE-FIT. IF I HAD ORDERED ONE SIZE SMALLER, MY TOES WOULD PROBABLY HIT THE RUBBER-BUMPER OF THE SOLE INSIDE, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH WORSE. I ACTUALLY LOVE THE SLOUCHY, SQUISHY LOOK AND FEEL OF THESE--HENCE THE NAME: "MARSHMALLOW-BOOTS"!

AS FOR THE SOLES--THEY ARE NOT SUPER-HEAVY-DUTY, SO I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND WEARING THEM IN SNOWDRIFTS OR DOWNPOURS; BUT, GOING-OUT SHOPPING OR WALKING THE DOG ON FAIR-WEATHER DAYS IS OKAY. I MENTIONED THIS IN ONE OF MY OTHER BOOT-REVIEWS...YOU CAN WEAR SHEEPSKIN IN LIGHT RAIN WITHOUT A PROBLEM--I HAVE NEVER USED THE SPRAY-PROTECTOR-STUFF ON ANY PAIR OF SHEEPSKIN BOOTS I OWN. IT IS NATURALLY WATER-REPELLANT, AND WILL DRY QUICKLY, WITHOUT GETTING THE FEET WET. ANY WATER-STAINS CAN BE EASILY REMOVED (ESPECIALLY FROM LIGHT-COLORED SHEEPSKIN), BY GENTLY RUBBING THE SUEDE WITH A SOFT MICROFIBER CLOTH, OR A BABY HAIRBRUSH, WHEN COMPLETELY DRY.

STYLIN' THESE BOOTS IS FUN--I LIKE TO WEAR THEM WITH SHORTS, SKINNY JEANS, OR DRESSED-DOWN WITH MY SWEATS TUCKED-INTO THE TOPS, AND A COMFY HOODIE. I SOMETIMES EVEN WEAR THEM TO THE STORE WITH MY FUZZY PAJAMA-PANTS (TUCKED-IN, OR LONG)! SOMETHING I LIKE ABOUT THE TALL ONES, IS THAT I CAN FOLD-OVER THE TOP AND EXPOSE THE LINING, WHEN I WANT A DIFFERENT LOOK. I FEEL LIKE AN ASPEN-SNOW-BUNNY WHEN I WEAR THESE!! :D
