REALLY weird fit

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These are some nice looking boots. They look soft, warm, and well-made. Based on other reviews, I was prepared for some funky fitting situations, but I got them on S&C and was prepared to deal with pretty much anything because I wanted them so bad.

Most of the boot fit perfectly, but for some reason the heal is like twice as wide as the rest of the boot and my heal slipped out with every step. It was really weird because the rest of it fit very well (just a little snug, which is good because I know they stretch) but I couldn't get over the heal thing. I was really disappointed. It seems like a really weird way to make boots, because I can't imagine what type of foot that would fit.

These should definitely be tried on in a store before buying online.

Hey there! Your fit description with the heel being wider is super accurate... I know that these boots are designed that way however, they're supposed to have a 'slipper' fit. EMU makes lower volume heels for a more snug boot fit, but all of the stingers are meant to fit loose in the heel for that comfortable slipper fit. Not for everyone, but it's meant to be that way. :-)

Warm, oh-so-snuggly, and I agree that they are meant to be roomy and comfortable. HOWEVER, having said that, the best solution is SIZE DOWN ONE SIZE because they do run large. They're not meant to be your skin-tight date-night Italian designer boot. They do what they're designed to do--easy, great casual look, warm, cushy. I will always have a pair of these on hand for cold weather. Word of caution: waterproof them for those slushy days and avoid deep puddles.
