My favorite Boots!

I have had problems with bunions and sore feet for quite a while, and these boots are perfect. They are snug around the ankles, and roomy in the toe/ ball of foot area. The soles are very flexible, so my feet are getting more of a bare foot action. At first my feet had to get used to them a little bit, because of the bunions. The joints in the ball of my feet were not lined up correctly, so it took a while for them to start correcting themselves. I also wear a toe separator between the large toe and the next one, which I think helped the joints get aligned better. Anyway, these have become my new favorite shoes! I wish there were other colors in my size, because I want to wear these every day! Two thumbs up!!!

Narrow, barefoot, tight ankle

First these are beautiful, well made shoes that I wish fit me. I am usually a EU 41 US 9.5 and these 41 groundies Odessa boots are a tiny bit long but the 40’s were too tight all over and I couldn’t get them on.I have a high volume foot with a high arch wide mid foot and narrow heal. This boot is narrow AF in the midfoot where my big and little toes sit. I can get it zipped at my ankle if I struggle but it’s tight. I think this is mostly due to my high volume foot taking up a lot of the space in the boot there.Once zipped in it would be really great and comfortable if there was just more room midfoot. The toe box is wide so lots of room for my toes but not for the mid toes. Narrow heal seemed fine.I’m sad not to keep these but if you look at the photo my foot literally was bigger than the sole of the shoe.

Good arch support, but not for barefoot shoes

These were very cute and look very nice, as pictured. But as for barefoot shoes, they have too much arch support to qualify. My feet are used to true barefoot shoes, and these were super uncomfortable. If you are used to arch support, you may love them. But I had to return them.

Healthy feet!

I love these boots! Just what I was looking for in terms of natural foot shape and zero drop soles. I only wish they came in a darker brown, but these go surprisingly well with most things after all!

Old style better

Wanted to give these a try as I have the older style of Odessa with the more rounded bottom, as opposed to this more distinct, straight bottom. There is more structure to the bottom, though it is still zero drop and barefoot style. It was NOT as comfortable as the older style, which was like being barefoot. Groundies needs to go back to that style because it was AMAZING. This new one got sent right back to Amazon. NOT worth the $$…it’s not even that they weren’t as comfortable as the previous style…these were not comfortable at all. 🙁
