Rocketdog Slope Boots..... I really wanted some Ugg Boots last year and I have to say that this same desire is here this year. However I really cannot justify spending that much money on one pair of boots to myself (or Himself). This is how I came across these Rocketdog Slope Boots being sold on Amazon last year. At the time I was able to get them for £60 which included postage and I think this price is pretty much the same for this year. I have also seen them being sold in my local shoe shop for a fair bit more than that this year so it seems they are still pretty much in fashion. The boots are of the same ilk as Ugg boots but obviously a fraction of the price. They also have a good sized rubber sole that can take a lot of walking and a great deal of wearing. The Boots come in a few different variations of colour but I opted for the less noticeable dark brown which I have found goes with most things and does show the dirt up as much as some of the other colours. The boots come up to the top of the calf muscle and all the time I have had them they haven't really stretched or gotten any bigger round this area which is a good thing as they fitted m e perfect. I have rather chunky calves and was worried after buying them online that they wouldn't fit on my legs but they did and I can just about get my skinny jeans tucked in as well! The boots as not as furry inside as Ugg boots are but they are still snugly and keep the feet nice and warm. They are not really ideal for wet weather as after a good deal of walking in the rain the water will soak through. I have been out shopping in the rain and because of popping in and out of shops managed too keep my boots relatively dry meaning my socks stayed bone dry! I really lived in these Boots a lot last year and was practically in them everyday. I have walked a long way mile wise in them and they have spent many a windy and cloudy day walking along the beach with Jack and the dog in tow. I can't say that they aren't showing the fact that they have been well worn as they really are. The material that the shoes are made of is starting to bobble ever so slightly on the front of the boot and the colour of them has faded a little. I probably won't be wearing them this year unless it is another walk on the beach or a walk with the dog. They are still really comfy but they have seen better days. The price is a good one though when comparing it to Uggs and if I hadn't already gone a little shoe crazy this last few months (MBT's too!) I would probably buy another pair of these but in a different shade (grey maybe!). I would highly recommend these boots though as Rocketdog are a good reputable make that do sell quality shoes and boots at a reasonable price. I think a score of 4 out of 5 stars and the only minus mark being that I wished they looked better for this year but maybe they are designed for wet beach walking!!!!! Many thanks for taking the time to read. I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
