A94162 - Bare Traps Leather Side Zip & Buckle Ankle Boots
Leather does not look real
Seems to run big. Wore them for a while and made my socks bunch up
not real great
sister thought they weren't real leather. heel is awfully hard plastic, loud, and gives a feeling of instability. should have sent them back. they feel pretty comfortable but with the negatives definitely not worth what they cost to get them home.
Soft and comfortable but not for walking
These boots although made of soft leather and very accommodating for toes are not made for walking. Heal has no give and as a result my knees felt the impact with each step (I do a lot of walking to work on cement pavement). Had to return.
Great Boots, Not So Great Heel
These boots are very comfortable to me and I have terrible foot problems. I added an insole to them are the best. The leather is super soft and I have the grey which looks fabulous with gray pants. The boots are very stable too. I took the boots to a shoe repair and had the bottom of the heel replaced with a rubber heel; they made so much noise when I walked. Now they are quiet and I like them so much better.
Bare Traps Leather Side Zip & Buckle Ankle Boots
Loved the boots, very comfortable, very stable for work or running around town. Like another review I was disapointed in the finish of the heel, chipped on first wear and exposed white plastic! Why could bare traps not have used black? Guess I need a sharpie! Maybe it should be included...
These are the most comfortable heeled boots I have ever worn. Great fit and quality. Leather is beautiful.
Love, Love, Love!!!
These boots are comfortable and stylish. They look great with jeans or slacks. Good job, Bare Traps!!!
Everything Promised and More
I had to write a review because these shoes are sooooo amazing. I have a chronic pain condition and have trouble wearing any kind of heel. I thought I was stuck wearing sneakers forever. Bare Traps are my new best friend. Thank you for creating a shoe for a busy woman with three kids under 5, running a busy household and still letting me feel like a sexy woman.
Being that I'm already 5 10 love to see more 2 3/4 heel shoes.
Great boots, terrible heels!
I LOVE the look and comfort of this boot I have them in gray and the fit, softness and the leather are all wonderful....the reason I must give only 3 stars is while the comfort of this boot says "wear every day" there is no way they would hold up to everyday wear. I got them last year and wore them occasionally on the weekends(I alternated with the two buckle style in brown plus I have many shoes/boots, etc) but the heels are trashed..the "black faux finish" wore off the heel (from driving?) to reveal white PLASTIC underneath and it looks awful. The same thing happened to the brown pair... The heel damage occurred very quickly after the second or third wearing...sad to say I colored it in with a sharpie everytime I wore them because I still loved and wanted to wear them!
I would have to say it's a bad heel design/material on an otherwise cute and comfortable boot.
MOST COMFORTABLE BOOT EVER!!!
I purchased these first in the black in a size 10. They fit me a little loosely but I could still wear them and boy are they comfortable. I loved them so much I also got them in the gray and brown. They didn't have a 10 so I got a 9 1/2 in the other two colors and they fit just great and were equally as comfortable. I have owned many shoes in my life and I have to say that these are truly the most comfortable that I have ever worn. I have walked all day in these boots and my feet don't even hurt a little. I can't say enough about these boots. I only wish they came in more colors. I would definitely buy them.
Cute, comfortable boot
I haven't worn high heels in years, but I can wear these. And I love the way they look. I chose the mushroom, which is really a darker taupe. It goes great with black, brown and everything else.
Ordering my usual ten, I have enough room in them to wear with medium-weight wool socks or an orthotic. Or maybe both, if they stretch, which I think they wll.
They're comfortable. The engineering of the shoe is interesting. It seems to create an usual support for the mid-foot, so that the foot doesn't slip down toward the toe. The heel itself takes a bit of getting used to, but it's nice and feels stable.
Now for the reasons I gave it a four, rather than a five. First, that pretty goring on the inside of the boot is wonderful for stretching around a wider ankle or thick socks, but the edges of the leather are already starting to curl up around the stitching on one of my boots. I may decided to glue it down close to the stiching (so I don't lose the stretch.)
But a more serious issue is the bottom of the heel. While the sole of the front of the boot feels like rubber and has a good hold on the floor, the heal feels like its soled with hard plastic. On my left foot, where I tend to hit the ground slightly off toward the outside of the heel, I've had it slip out from under me several times, when I leave the carpet in my house and walk on the hardwood floor or linoleum.
I'm going to take them to a shoemaker and have that little plastic bit on the bottom of the heal replaced with something with more traction, which is a pain in the neck. I really wish BareTraps had put a rubber sole on the heal as well.
But I like these boots so much that I'm still giving them four stars. Since I'm the only person, apparently, that the heel has bothered so far, so it might not be an issue for you. Otherwise, I recommend them as a cute boot for skirts or pants.
Comfort Right Out of The Box
This is a great "shootie". The heel profile is perfect. The position is such that your foot is not pushed forward & the is no pressure on the ball of the foot - BUT you still get the height! It is easy to get on & off. Good instep support & plenty of width across the widest part of the foot. The mushroom color is terrific - an update to "brown". It is a great neutral. Dressy enough for slacks & excellent with jeans.
