Beautiful - but...

I bough them in the grey "camp" look and LOVED them, until I walked in them and felt a hard pea sized lump in the side near my little toe. -- ouch!

I put my hand in and felt a glob of what I can only guess was the glue used to adhere the fleece to the boot. there was also a smaller glob under the ball of the foot. The shearling cannot be removed and the toebox was too tight to add an insole to try to correct the lumpiness - so I had to send them back.

I tried on with thin wool sock and the fleece hugged my foot and leg snug but very comfortably - I wear a sz 7 and ordered a 7 - so the size was right (size up if you want to wear thick socks though.

Other reasons: could feel the rocks in my driveway through the thin footbed and no room to add an insole to correct this. Too shiny for my taste - would prefer a matte surface but would have scuffed with steel wool to take down the shine had I decided to keep them. They are heavy and the toebox is narrow for a rain boot.

These are probable good for city use, but not for my rural lifestyle where I am in boots all day all winter long and must have comfort over style.
