Too tight at the ankles
These boots looked nice and the 8.5 size was right, but I could barely get my foot past the very narrow ankle. The taper at the ankle made the boots look less clunky than an UGG, but without a zipper or lace opening it was too tight. I managed to squeeze them on without socks, but then the foot was too loose. Impossible to wear them with socks. Impossible to keep.
