- Q & A
Inaccurate size + BAD return poIicy
My first mistake was not checking this site's return policy and buying two pairs at separate times. In the case of these boots, I followed their size guide and got a size 7.5 because it said that was a 38 European number. I'm a 38 but, size 7 here in the States. So the shoes were big, not fitting how a true 38 fits me.
And even though they were big, I didn't think they were that comfortable. Too stiff. So I got a pair of Sorel instead.
BEWARE: if you need to return an item, you will be the one paying for the shipping whether you get a UPS label from here or ship on your own. With SO many great shoe companies in the market that have 2-day delivery and free returns, why even bother? But it is my fault for not checking their return policy prior to my purchases. Lesson learned.
I LOVE these boots so much!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I get compliments everywhere I go when I wear these and I absolutely love how they fit my foot. They are squishy and comfortable from the day you open the box! They are fashionable and functional which to me is the biggest win. They fit with some big wool socks and are pretty dang warm.
Keen Elsa II Ankle Wool Boot WP
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is my favorite style of the Elsa II WP boot that Keen has released. The short ankle style is a timeless one, and the wool sides really play it up while adding much needed warmth for winter. Metal eyelets are always a deal breaker for me, and there aren't unnecessary bells or whistles to take away from the minimalist appearance of these boots. The waterproofing works great and can be maintained so that you have these boots for a lifetime.
