Goldilocks And The Red Boots

I’m historically awful at picking out snow boots.

That’s why I’m inviting you, the internet, to round two.

Here’s an overview of the situation.

Last year I bought these.

I tend to make rash decisions, products of a cocktail of childlike enthusiasm and its less endearing counterpart, childlike impatience. More simply, I have the brain of a ten-year-old and the responsibilities of an adult.

This year, in an effort to avoid more buyer’s remorse, I’m doing online research. Consistent with my ten-year-old brain, I love the pictures, but the words, not as fun. See also, confusing.

Online product reviews are often given the “more is more” treatment. That works until you read ten reviews on the same product. It feels like Goldilocks got wasted and tried on the pair of boots I’d really like to buy.

THESE WAS TOO BIG. NO, THESE WAS TOO HOT. NO, THEY WAS PERFECT!!! I MEAN, THEY SEEM LIKE THEY WOULD BE GOOD IN SNOW BUT WE DON’T HAVE SNOW WHERE I LIVE HEHEHE. OH WELL! MAKE SURE TO ORDER ONE SIZE SMALL, BUT ONLY IF YOU WEAR THICK SOCKS, THEN THEY’RE JUST RIGHT. OH EXCEPT IF YOU WEAR THEM IN THE SUBWAY. THEN THEY’RE SLIPPERY. REALLY SLIPPERY. OH YEAH, I COULD HAVE JUST TOLD YOU IN THE BEGINNING THAT THEY’RE SO SLIPPERY I BROKE MY TAILBONE, BUT NOW THAT I’VE WAITED SO LONG TO MENTION THAT I LOOK LIKE A GIANT LIAR WHO WANTED TO WRITE AN INTERESTING REVIEW. WAIT. WHY AM I IN THIS HOUSE? THIS ISN’T MY HOUSE! HAHAHA.

That said. I’m thinking about buying these. Too red? Too something? Just right? Vote? Please?
