Minnetonka Lace-Up Boot
Comfortable but could be better
I can't yet say I'd recommend these b/c it's too early in my "getting to know you" phase. Considering this is my first pair of knee-high moccasins, I figure I should give them a chance. I'm hoping it's just because I haven't yet broken these in, but the stitching on the top is rubbing on my toe and it hurts. I wear a size 9 shoe and these are definitely true to size. For some reason, these feels a bit big but my toe hits where it should in a shoe. The heels on these are loose ... weird ... like, it fits snug and well in the front and then there's extra "space" where my heel lands ... it's the way they're cut ... they stick out in the back where the heel is. I guess this "slippage" problem could be corrected with an insole insert of some sort. Then there's the laces ... the tips aren't taped and they don't necessarily thread easily through the holes b/c they aren't taped to make it easy to thread ... really? I get that these are "rawhide laces" but they could be cut or finished at the end to make it easier to lace because the hole that it goes through is punched small.
Minnetonka Lace Up Boots
I LOVE IT! its so soft and pretty! it feels a little tight i guess because its new and the leather hasnt stretch yet. BUT I'M SO LOVING IT!
Cute boots but bunched around calf
I half smaller calves and these boots would fit due to the laces, but the laces and boot ended up looking bunched up instead. I had to return the boots due to this issue.
I am an 8.5 ... the 8 was small and the 9 big. so i went with the 9 so not to squish my perfect lotus yogi feet in hopes of them stretching one day! :) i love them!
