Hi, I'm Jae from, and I'm here with Rachelle to talk about laced boots versus zippered boots. Now, if you're talking about pure ease, zipper boots are going to win every time. What's great about a zipper boot is that it stretches a little bit more than a lace boot would, while a lace boot you'd get a more customized fit, it would take a lot longer to do them up. A zipper boot also offers the best access because you're able to put your whole leg and foot in with the boot unzipped. If you're trying to put on a lace boot you'll have to put your whole leg and foot into the boot before you can lace them up. This is problematic especially if you have a wider calf and have trouble getting the boot on, you can only unlace the lace boot so far before you'd have to put it on. Another thing about a zippered boot is that it's just quicker to put on. You can slide 'em on really fast, zip 'em up and get the best fit. A laced boot will take a little bit longer to lace up and tie every time you put them on. Now, if you want the best of both worlds and really love the look of laced boots you can look for boots that are laced down the front but have an access zipper in the back. That way you have the look of lace boots without actually having to do them up every time you put them on. And that's lace boots versus zipper boots. I'm Jae with and we'll see you next time.
