Extremely SMALL

Reviewed by Saintmom from NY on Friday, August 26, 2016
My old snow boots were getting very worn & losing their insulating properties. At the clearance price these Farrah boots were irresistible & seemed stylish & girly, unlike my old Sorel boots. They also had laces, something my old snowboots lacked, making them difficult to get off & on. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis & I need adjustability & comfort above everything else. My Sorel boots were a size 9 & had room to spare, my feet are a medium to narrow width, (& also I'm 5'11" with a small frame) but I decided to get these boots in a Sz 10 just in case.
Anyway, they looked small right out of the box, I double checked the sizes, & they all said Size 10, just like I ordered. I tried them on with stockings(not socks), & I had to really push my foot in, the opening was very tight & stiff. My foot was crammed in the boot, there was literally no wiggle room, my foot made contact with every part of the interior of the boot. I was astonished at just how tight & small these were. They felt like a size 8 or 8.5, at least 1.5 sizes too small. I've never had this happen before, usually snowboots run large. I compared them my sz 9 Sorel snowboots, which were at least one inch longer than these supposed size 10's. So, I had no choice but to return them. I thought about getting the sz 11, but I was worried that they still would be too small & I hate paying for shipping in mislabeled/mis-sized merchandise!

I'm really surprised these boots have such glowing reviews, & no one mentioned how small they are. I think it is doubtful I was the only one to receive tiny boots, but who knows!
The quality was decent, they were very girly & the shiny patent black was pretty. The shimmer "suede" wasn't super obvious & just the right touch of sparkle.
So sad!!! :(
