Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
The term comfortable, as employed in the footwear industry, refers to footwear specially designed to provide adequate foot support or relief from discomfort when walking or running. The signature features of comfortable footwear are padded footbeds, broader toe boxes, contoured footbeds that follow the shape of the foot, shorter heel heights, flexible soles, greater arch support, polyurethane outer soles, and in some cases, rubber nubs on the soles to increase traction.

Ordered 2 pair 1 for my college age daughter in purple ordered 1/2 size up she loves them and plans to wear them around campus. I am returning mine my foot is wide and these were a little too narrow. Also felt the boot was too tall for me, I'm only 5' and the boot was a little taller than the bend of my knee. We both love the look of the boot; it's a great value.
Wears this shoe: on rainy days walking across campus
