The boots are fairly lightweight and thin. The inside is felt-like -- maybe suede? (probably not given the price). I've never tried on the Matildes, so I don't know how easy or hard it is to wear. Even with the zipper on the Old Navy ones, I had trouble pulling them up over my jeans! It mostly happened with my left leg, but I had to seriously wedge my feet in there while tugging on the boot shaft at the same time. It was not a pretty picture. But once I got them on, I found them to be comfortable and easy to walk in. I like to wear knee-high socks with my boots, but I don't think there will be room with this pair (unless I wear tights).
I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to trying and judging how boots look on me. Any thoughts? I'm still debating whether I should keep them. For $30, it seems like a no-brainer to keep, right? But it's still money. I do like how they look on me but putting them on is such a pain, I'm not sure it's worth it. What do you guys think? Should I keep or return?
