Canvas Sneaker Boots!
Pallabrouse Baggy Review:
I wear between a size 8 and a 9 and read a few reviews on other sites that said these were a bit large so I ordered a size 8 which I immediately returned and exchanged for a size 9. They are a narrowish long boot, the 8 squeezed my toes together in a most unacceptable way. I don't have what you would call a wide foot, it's a standard foot width. The 9's have perhaps a bit more room than is absolutely necessary. My toes don't go all the way to the end, a good thing as far as I'm concerned, but the fit is still snug enough, and I can wear smartwool socks which I tend to wear year round. I sprained my ankle badly last summer and really need ankle support all the time now. Not that these hug my ankles in a super strong way but it's something. I'm hoping they can be my go to summer shoes, and when its just too hot for a boot, I can turn down the flaps. They are fairly light, and the canvas appears to be really breathable. The soles are sturdy, flexible and very soft to walk on. They have a bit more arch support really than I expected and are comfortable right out of the box. Not sure how they will feel after 8 hours working on a concrete floor, there is room for insoles if I need them, but that's a test that will have to wait. The Dark Olive/Gum color looks more brown in the photo, but they are a standard sort of faded Army green, just what I hoped for. The burnished, vintage look is very nice. I like the extra details of the Pallabrouse over the Pampa. Overall, I'm happy
