After nearly obsessing over the various types of Bogs
, I finally just ordered the Plimsoll Tall Leaf in Ginger. I eagerly awaited my boots, and after two weeks of trying to make them work (just wearing them around the house), I am returning them. I am so disappointed. They are heavy. At first I was surprised by how big they looked, but quickly got over that fact. Then, after trying them on, I noticed my ankles feeling fatigued. Even with thin wool hiking socks, they also felt too loose, especially at the ankle and back of the foot. I was expecting them to feel snug and secure. Despite how many positive reviews I read (mostly about the classic Bogs
boots), these just are not going to work for me. They are not nearly as comfortable as I had hoped. It is really too bad, as they seemed well worth the investment for a boot that is warm, waterproof, and practical, too! Living in the Pacific Northwest we need boots like these! Maybe for some these will work well, but for me, it is a no go.
