Like I said, the bottom heel is rigidly structured and that’s no small matter. This is an extremely tough boot. From the first moment I slipped them on, I could feel the strength in the sole and heel. I was almost worried that it would be too difficult to break in, and for those with wider feet, I was worried it might be impossible (it’s definitely a boot on the narrow side).
However, after the first few days, I can happily say that the Andres Boot doesn’t just boast heavy-duty strength, style, and durability — but adaptable comfort. The boots kept my feet warm, snug, and dry in rain, sleet, and even snow (but maybe don’t chance ‘em during a snowstorm).I also recommend making sure you get either a half size or even a full size above what you’re used to. Nisolo’s Andres Boot is a cozy, supportive shoe, and it doesn’t leave my much wiggle room for breaking in. I’m a size 12 and my Andres is a 12.5. If I had gotten my actual size, I definitely would have had to send the boots back.
