Jason A.wrote a question about Ruffwear Bark'n Boots Polar Trex - Set of 4 on January 15, 2012
Questions about fit:
I'm looking for a snug fitting winter dog boot that comes high on the leg for maximal protection from ski edges.
1. Can anyone tell me if the upper part of the boot stays high on the leg, or does it slouch down over time? I'm concerned that since the leg sections of these boots are not made of stetchy material like neoprene they'll just sag down like a pair of loose tube socks, thus providing no protection, only a bunch of extra material to accumulate snow and ice.
2. In Ruffwear's instructional video for these boots, the front portion of the boot upper, below the elastic closure, looks like it forms a large loose fold in the material, which seems almost certain to accumulate snow and ice. Can anyone confirm or refute this?
Thanks for any suggestions.
