Have at me, winter

My awesome new Nike sneaker booties are the absolutely only reason I am looking forward to the nasty, chilly months to come: they’re unbelievably soft and plushy on the inside, water-resistant on the outside  (I tested) and actually—I swear it—quite cool-looking on. Like Mukluks gone techno. I totally should have written about them sooner because they’re beginning to sell out in some sizes (check them out on Zappos if that’s the case for you) and by the time the first snow’s here, they’ll all be gone, gone, gone.

    Just purchased – once you see them on the model’s foot, it’s a no-brainer. Can’t wait to wear and can’t wait to stay warm in them. And WATERPROOF! Best.

    How’s the sizing? I find a lot of Nike sneakers on the small side.

    One of the reviews on Zappos says the sole is hard as a rock, like walking on concrete. Kim, what say you? And are the treads good enough for snow/ice?

      Huh. That wasn’t my experience at all. And yes, they’ve got nice treads.

        Mine arrived today from Zappos! I ordered 7.5 and they fit perfectly on my slightly wide feet. Very comfortable inside and the soles do not feel like concrete! (though I am worried a bit about the traction on ice, may have to take to shoemaker for extra treads)

    Ordered them on Nike.com. Free Shipping! They had my size. Yay! I’m a long time follower of your blog, first time commenter. Just had to thank you for what I’m sure will be my new favorite winter boots.

    Those are SO CUTE!! but garrr, one of the zappo’s reviews says they run big and the other says they run small. SHUT UP ZAPPO’S.

    I know, it’s weird how Nike sizes get reviewed! I think it’s because so many different people wear them.

    My experience is that they run a little big, but not big enough to take a different size. And that if reviews say they run small, then they fit me perfectly. I have a slightly wide foot and don’t find them to be narrow. I am a 7.5 in just about everything and I am in Nikes too.

    I suffer every winter with crappy boots, so you’ve sold me – 6 is still in stock.

    How are they fitting? I want to send them to my daughter who goes to college in Chicago. She normally wears a 7.5, but the reviews are confusing regarding sizing. Thank you for any help you can offer.

    ordered and received! they’re great. I have been looking for a reason every year to give up the (seven-year) old uggs but didn’t have a compelling one until now. they don’t look so snow-bootie-esque to be out of place in central texas – nothing weirder than all these knee high hunter wellie wearing folk roaming around austin when it drizzles – but will still be cozy when the temps drop to the 50s 😉
