It’s been two weeks since the Everlane Boss Boots have arrived at my door, and I have been obsessed with them! I do want to do a full review once they’ve broken in a little more and I’ve worn it with a few different outfits.
So far though…I am L-O-V-I-N-G them. For a long time, I was debating between these and the Marc Fisher Yale Boots–both because they’re dupes for the Acne Jensen boots. I went with these ones because of the higher heel, the zipper detail, the higher shaft (I didn’t have boots that went higher than my ankle until now!), and mostly because of the ethical-ness of the Everlane brand.
I was a little hesitant that these wouldn’t fit in with my other clothes (they have more of a rocker vibe than I’m used to), but I’ve always wanted to own that boho-rocker-off-duty look that Free People models do so well. I figured this would be a good step towards that direction. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily these boots fit in with my closet. They dress up any of my basic outfits, like this dress or a typical skinny jeans and t-shirt look.
As I’ve said before in my review of the Everlane Silk Square Shirt Dress, I’ve never had a problem with the quality of Everlane’s clothes. I’ve never tried their shoes until now, and I gotta say–I don’t think these will be my last pair of shoes from them. The leather is soft and I love the pebbling on them. The box that it came in said that these babies were made in Italy (always a plus for me!). The leather is soft but not too soft to lose their structure. I can foresee these shoes lasting me a long while.
COMFORT & THE FIT
I am usually a true size 8 in shoes, but when it comes to boots, I tend to size up half a size so that I can wear socks (thin or thick depending on the weather). After reading the reviews, I went with getting an 8.5 and am so glad I did! They fit perfectly. Now before I talk comfort, I am a real wimp when it comes to pain while breaking in shoes (this is why I don’t wear heels). With that being said, it is taking a little while to break these in. I can wear these for a few hours before feeling uncomfortable at the ball of my feet, but the leather is breaking in beautifully. The leather was a bit stiff when I first put them on, but that’s also something that I love about these boots. I’m hoping though that the leather will mold to my feet and that I’ll be able to wear these shoes all day very soon (hopefully in time for Coachella!).
I’m sad that the Japanese GoWeave Cocoon Dress didn’t work out, but I’m looking forward to exploring more of Everlane’s stock. When I’m shopping now, I’m always comparing things to Everlane and would love to find some more ethical brands to try (or collaborate with!). If you guys know of any, please comment down below! I’d love to discover some new places to shop.
