Ara Greta Gore-Tex® Snow Boots - Waterproof, Suede (For Women)
Closeouts. The Ara Greta Gore-Tex® snow boots bring haute couture to the usually staid world of winter footwear, and a fashionable suede upper combines with a toasty fleece lining to deliver weatherproof style to your winter wardrobe. A grippy synthetic outsole keeps you on your feet, and a Comfort Flex footbed supports each step on those snowy walks.
Reviewed by mountaingirl from Lake Arrowhead, CA on Monday, January 30, 2017These seem more like a casual wear boot than a true "snow" boot to me, since they can be worn almost like a high top sneaker and are comfortable without being overly warm indoors, but they are quite waterproof and I have had them out in the snow, where the traction was fine. I also find that they look lighter in person than online, and definitely more towards tan than taupe. For some reason, and you can't see this in the photos, they put bright red tips on the laces, which I just don't get, as they match nothing else. I will probably replace the laces for this reason, but it is not a deal breaker. I do agree with other reviewers that the boot tends to cut a bit into the ankle at the top. I have loosened the laces and am willing to work with breaking them in a bit as they are pretty comfortable otherwise. The left boot has a bit of a bulge inside where all the stitching comes together for different layers and this feels like there is a seam in my sock by my little toe. So far, no blisters, but I wish the two boots were the same. This seems to be an issue with shoes featuring toe caps. I am hoping to resolve this more as I have decided to keep the boots. I have other great ara boots that I absolutely LOVE but are quite winter specific, so I am hoping to be able to use these for more of the year.
Reviewed by emilyh from Oregon on Tuesday, January 3, 2017cute, but not comfortable. The foot bed didn't feel quite right and it was way to still in the front and yet difficult to get the laces tight enough. Weird all around.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rona from Colorado on Sunday, December 4, 2016very nice, and otherwise comfortable, but not sure if I can get used to the stiffness where it hits the front of the ankle.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by GeeMarie from Grand Rapids, MI on Tuesday, November 8, 2016Super cute boots - which I had to return due to the fit. The "high top" part of the boot cut into my ankle in the front - extremely uncomfortable.
