What I Wish I Knew Before I Purchased
February 9, 2019
Even for me, this is a convoluted review.
First of all, the actual product is great! My mother-in-law loves the boots. A FIVE star rating for look, feel and comfort at a very reasonable price.
But second, because the seller doesn’t provided boot widths to go with the length sizes, it turns out that if you want to wear socks (to avoid stinky boot) or have the swollen feet of anyone over 65, you really should purchase the next size up from your normal shoe length. There is only about 2/16”-3/16” width difference between a size 7-8 and a 9-10. We had to return the first order to re-order the next size up . . . which did fit for the left foot. A THREE rating for lack of product information.
And thirdly, with the second order, we received TWO Left Foot Boots (see pic). Come on Simple Bare Necessities! That’s just sloppy customer service – necessitating another product return. [Thank you Amazon for making returns relatively easy to do, but for the time to do it.] A ONE star rating for not paying attention to product shipping details and making me do extra work to get both a left AND a right boot.
So, bottom line, I averaged out the overall star rating to a THREE. If they added widths to the size chart and fixed their inventory/shipment problems, it would probably change to FIVE stars.
