Received but not yet cold weather tested

Verified Buyer Reviewed by BillyB from Mississippi on Saturday, October 21, 2017
This review is based only on the initial inspection of my just received ECCO Roxton snow boots and not actual snow or cold weather use. First I received extremely quick shipping from Sierra Trading Post. At first look, out of the box, these boots look just like the pictures on the website, appear to be well made, the seams are tight and even, the lacing system sturdy, and the materials and components high quality. I normally wear US 9 1/2 to 10 shoes and ordered Euro size 44 as the best fit according to most conversion charts. I was afraid the boots would be a little too big, but trying them on with heavy hiking socks and ski socks, they seemed just the right size. Lacing them up took a little while, but with snug laces, the fit was comfortable and the tongue felt good again my lower shin. The wool lining looks good, maybe not quite as thick as I imagined it would, but adequate. Two items that do concern me, 1) not much arch support, and 2) the heel area seems a little big for my narrow heel, even with thick socks. (It may be my foot shape, others may find the heel fit ok.) I intend to use these boots only for short walks and standing in snow so 2) may not be too much of a problem, but, 1) will be. Perhaps an insole or insert will help and I hope not to loose the nice wool lined insole in the process of fixing this. Overall, I'm very happy with what I've seen so far.
