Kamik Womens Pearson2 Snow Boot
I normally wear a size 8-8.5 but the 8 in these just felt too big and there was too much room in the bootie and between the bootie and boot part. I was pretty skeptical about the 7 but had to try because I love the boot. 7 was a bit snug but after two days wearing, it fits great and feels pretty comfortable in the foot area. The shaft is still a bit stiff, but I think it will loosen up. I've worn it with thin socks and no socks. Thick socks would just be too warm for me, but I could probably do it if necessary.
So I would recommend sizing down or trying two sizes if possible.
I wanted Kamik boots no matter what. After googling 'snow boots made in canada' I found this brand and liked it and wanted to support it. The fact that it is made on this continent is great for a lot of reasons.
The best part of the boot is the little maple leaf on the back. So cute. The booty insert is a cool bronzey colour on the outside and orange on the inside and the trim is real shearling. Lastly, the description says 'Made in China' but it says on the boot and box and Kamik website 'Made in Canada'. Amazon just saw 'C' and thought 'China', I guess. But these are very well made and look great, especially in that sea of Sorels out on the streets.
