I trust these boots. That's saying a lot right there. Whether its raining, snowing or icy, I'm never on the fence about what to wear. The Bern Baby Bern boots by Keen have amazing soles that I never find myself slipping in or letting moisture in. They're so comfortable, keep me warm and totally dry in rain, sleet and snow. The opening is the perfect size - I can rock the sock toppers without feeling constricted while on the other hand, when I'm going with the boot on denim look, they lay flush. But for all those ladies out there who are calf-conscious, the belt-like strap is there to accommodate your calves, no matter how big or small they are :) The shaft of this boot was definitely built with a ladies figure in mind - like I said the opening is the perfect size and then it tapers down to the ankle (with enough room to roll or smush your not-so-skinny jeans) and then it tapers out a touch to connect with the sole, leaving a good sized space for your thin or thick socks. The sizing is totally a true fit - if you measure out to an 8, buy an 8. That's what I wear and bought in these boots and again, regardless if I wear thick or thin socks, this boot still fits great.
Waterproof, slip proof, and fashion friendly - well-rounded and stylish...highly recommend these!
