I haven’t good boots in a long while. I used to have some decent boots, but the cats urinated on them about two years ago, so yeah, I threw those away. Whenever I had to shovel snow, I just wore sneakers. With all of the snow that we’ve been having these past two seasons, wearing sneakers seemed to less and less of a good idea. After some perusing, my wife and I found these Land’s End Kenosha snow boots online, but I couldn’t tell if size 11 or 12 would good. Shoes and/or my feet are a little weird — I almost always really need to try them on in person, as feet seem to be varying sizes. 11, 11.5, 11 wide, 11.5 wide, 12. I used to wear size 13 sneakers growing up, so um, did my feet shrink?
I bought size 12s, but they were too big. Sent them back, and got them now in size 11. Still seem a smidge too big, but I’m not sending them back. I’ll just wear thicker socks (or double up) if I have to. Maybe Land’s End boots run a little big? Dunno. Here’s the official description of them:
This durable and rugged snow boot features 400-gram Thermolite insulation for warmth and a waterproof shell to help keep feet dry through slush and snow. With a gussetted tongue for added coverage and lugged rubber sole for sturdy, wear-resistant traction.
I found them to be warm, didn’t leak, look spiffy in brown, black, and orange. I like them.
