Q: I love sheepskin boots but really need them a bit higher Would about 16-18 inches be possible? Also could you tell me the width of the foot at the widest part for size 12? As I always look for maximum resilience and comfort could you indicate the thickness of the sheepskin wool (fur) in the interior?

Asked by: Hilary - 2/11/2016
A: Hey Hilary,

The Cornice boot is the maximum height we would go on our boots. It measures at 14 inches. That is 10 inches boot and a 4 inch cuff added. For a size 12, you would order a 31. The widest part in that size measures at 4 1/8 inch and the sheepskin thickness is 5/8.

Hope that helps,

Q: Are these boots very durable and able to be used often in very cold ice and snow conditions for a person who walks everywhere here in very cold and snowy Iowa? Are the boots waterproof also? Again, trying to find boots, shoes that are not made by slave-labor workforce to the best of my ability, but need very sturdy and long lasting boots. Thanks.

Asked by: Amrit - 3/2/2016
A: The Drift boot is a very durable boot. The upper is 100% US sheepskin, with a cowhide overlay on the heel and toe for extra durability. The insoles are replaceable. The TPR sole is very durable as well, and the boots can be re-soled if needed. They can be waterproofed with a silicone spray.

Q: Being a leather boot, do these tend to stretch a bit once worn? I wear a size 8 but my leather work boots are all 7.5. Also, the cut-out on the toe. Is the leather cut out to expose the material from the inside of the boot? If so, does that inside material "push" out through the cut-out over time? Thanks!

Asked by: KH - 11/16/2016
A: Good morning,

These boots are actually sheepskin with a leather overlay. They stretch a little but not much so I would recommend you get the size 26. The cut out in the toe is just for looks with a double layer of leather so no material will come through.

Hope that helps,

Q: Is the centimeter sizing measured from tip of big toe to heel? Mine is 25.4. What do you suggest?

Asked by: J - 10/19/2018
A: The centimeter sizing is measured from the tip of the toe to the heel of the last that we use to build the boot, so a size 25 would be snug without a sock on a 25 cm foot. At 25.4 cm, I would recommend the size 26.

Q: Are these slipper boots? I've had a pair of UGG boots for 23 years and they are finally wearing out. I wear them all winter around the house chorin and lounging. I wear them shoveling the driveway, quick trips to the store...I am looking for something to replace them that is comfortable like a slipper but wearable. Will these fit the bill or should I get the actual slipper boot you make?

Asked by: Brian - 10/1/2020
A: I would consider the Drift Boot more of a boot than a slipper. The molder rubber sole is flexible and comfortable with excellent traction, but will p[ick up snow and dirt if running in and out. The Colorado Moccasin or High Top Colorado Moccasin are durable enough to wear in and out, yet comfy enough to curl up on the couch in. I would not recommend shoveling snow with the leather sole.

Q: I’m an active walker in the winter here in Minnesota. Looking for a waterproof/semi waterproof, WARM, good tread, boot to power walk my dogs on the Mississippi River road trail. I like the distressed drift sheepskin boots. Would this work or do you recommend a different style? My US shoe size is 6.5-7. What size do you recommend? Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Laurie

Asked by: Laurie - 12/31/2021
A: The Drift boot would be a great choice for you. They can be waterproofed with silicone spray or other leather waterproofer and seam sealer. I would recommend the size 24 if you like a snug fit on a bare foot, or the size 25 if you prefer to wear socks. Thicker socks and possibly a thicker insole would be perfect in the 25.

Q: Can they be worn in snow? Waterproof? Love the hats we got years ago!!! My hat is about 30 yrs old and looks new!!!

Asked by: Denise Snell - 10/13/2022
A: The Drift boots are built for snow! They can be waterproofed with anything approved for leather. We find a silicone spray water proofer is easiest, while oil based water proofers offer the best protection.

Q: I have a very wide foot which requires a large square toe box. What boot would best suit me?

Asked by: Diane - 11/17/2023
A: All of our boots are built around the same sole, so all will be a similar width. The toe box is rather square and wider than average, so I think you have a good chance of fitting in any of them. Let us know you have a wide foot in the comments section during checkout and we will find the best pair for you.
