Heart and Sole–Comfort Starts from the Ground Up
The Sloggers’ heavy-duty lug sole is designed for sure-footed traction in water, mud, and muck. It provides the support and traction of a good work boot. Compare this to popular “foam” shoes, which offer little support or traction. The soles are also made from a long-lasting, durable material and they include up to 50% recycled material.
The Comfort Key–“All-Day-Comfort” Insoles
Not all insoles are created equal. Most rain boots use cheap, flat, die-cut insoles. Believe it or not, some rain boots don’t even include insoles.
The Sloggers’ “All-Day-Comfort” insoles are 7mm thick at the heel and 5mm thick at the ball of the foot. They are formed, not flat, and include a skived support material under the heel.
The “All-Day-Comfort” insoles are one of the main reasons that Sloggers get such great reviews. The company believes that if you’re going to spend your money buying their shoes, then you deserve a quality insole.
Size Does Matter–Fit is the Key for Your Satisfaction
Let’s face it, buying shoes online is a bit of a guessing game. Some women think the fit is true to size, some feel they run small, and some think they run large. The fact of the matter: every manufacture uses a different last (the shape of the inside of the shoe) and everyone’s feet are a little different.
Sloggers shoes and boots run pretty true to size, but here are some guidelines and tips to ensure a good fit:
- Almost all women who are in between sizes should order up and buy a “Half-Sizer-Insole”
- A heavy sock will add up to a half size
- A wide foot may require a half size larger
- A narrow foot should NOT order down a half size due to the length; however, a “Half-Sizer” insole added under the existing insole will snug the fit up a bit
