When shopping online, we often have a rough idea of what we want but need to do our research to find the specifics. That being said, no matter how many photos, reviews, or product descriptions you sift through, you are still making a mental model of what you are ordering. When I received these boots, they weren't what I had hoped they would be. The pull tab on the zipper was missing from one of the boots and they didn't quite meet my expectations in material or perceived durability. While the product was not what I desired, overstock did a great job of handling the return process. I printed a return label off of my account and sent them back. When overstock received the boots, they processed the return quickly and fully refunded my money, charging no extra fees for the return shipping because of the reported damage. While not impressed with the product, overstock made the shopping experience great.
Very comfortable and easy to walk in. My foot is wide and it fits well. Material is nice too. I wore them all day with no problems. Would like them in black.
Hi. I ordered my Journee Collection "Kai" boots in black. I got a sz 10 WC due to other reviews reporting the calf was a bit tight. For the record I am a size 16/18, 235lbs, 5'8", shoe sz 10M to a 10W depending on the type of shoe I'm purchasing. My calf size is 18" so I ordered the 10M in wide calf. The boots arrived a day early, I was kept apprised of their status with UPS's text/notification system. The Overstock box was undamaged and the boots were brand new in mint condition but they did NOT come with their own shoe box. Weird and disappointing. I tried sliding my right foot in as its the smaller and I couldn't without unzipping the boot near the inside ankle. Got it on..... foot fit just fine, but my wide cafe boot was just a tight in the cafe. I could probably wear them with tights or leggings but not actual jeans. Which is fine because that's exactly what I wanted them for. I'm returning them because the material is absolutely CHEAP looking. They do seem to be made very well but the black boots I received look very cheap. And yes I know its man made leather. I have other fake leather boots that look real, these "Kai" boots don't come close. Also, the material is very soft so it kind of scrunches at the ankles. But an absolute PLUS was that this boot is definitely a TALL boot which love.... comes right under my knees. Just wish it wasn't cheap looking. So yeah ..... they gotta go back unfortunately. I gave this boot a 3 stars because the fit, height and calf size were as expected but the texture of the material made the boot look very cheap. Hope this helps the next consumer of this particular Kai boot. This review hasn't demayed me from future Overstock.com or Journee Collection boot purchases.
I bought these in gray and overall really love them. They've got some funk appeal, are practical because their flat and look great with skirts or pants. I suspect these will be heavy in the rotation for me this fall/winter.If you have a very high instep, or want to wear thicker socks, you may consider going a half size up.I saw others say that they run true to size... however I had a moment when I thought my instep was going to keep me from getting them on. Thankfully the zipper goes ALL the way down past ankle. If you've had to get a half size up in other boots before, you may want to consider it for these.For the ladies with thicker calfs, I happily report that I was able to zip these all the way up, and even tuck some skinny jeans into them.
