I purchased these boots because I was looking for a cheaper alternative to higher priced trendy boots. I absolutely love the look of knitted boots, and the buttons are an adorable touch. I must say, however, that beyond being cute, these Bearpaw Women's Knit Fashion Boots are basically pointless. These are not good at all to wear out in boot weather, unless you happen upon a rare cold, clear day. Unfortunately, in the southeast where I live, there is not an abundance of those types of days, so these shoes are largely relegated to being house slippers. They are super comfy (although they do lack any sort of arch support) and they look great rolled down or worn up with leggings or skinny jeans. It is the lack of lining and protection from the elements that really renders them useless. I cannot help but feel like if I had spent a little more, I might have ended up with a boot that was both useful and cute, but I did not find that particular mix in these Bearpaw boots.
