Do you believe in “out of the box” comfortable or have you been burned too many times by ordering footwear online only to box them back up and return to sender? 

If you like the look of this vintage military-style lace-up boot by Rockport Cobb Hill, I can almost guarantee a good fit as the  Rockport Cobb Hill Bethany boot runs true to size and width.

Do you have a medium width foot across the mid section but need a little more room in the toe area to accommodate a wider forefoot? I do, and the Rockport Cobb Hill Bethany seems custom made for my foot. I could even wear a thicker sock and the boot would still fit nice and snug, but not tight. If you have a wide foot, try one of Cobb Hill’s wide width ankle boots such as the Shannon, Pandora or Alexandra.

The footbed is cushioned like a sneaker with moderate arch support. If you must remove it to insert an orthotic, you can–it’s only glued down loosely.

The rubber lug sole provides good traction and measures 1 1/2″ for a little lift. The back zipper is unique for an ankle boot–it’s not uncomfortable at all, doesn’t snag on socks and makes for easy-on and off while the laces stay tied. 

I’m wearing the Rockport Cobb Hill Bethany in dark red leather. It’s a deep red brown–perfect for the holidays!

    I bought the stone colored Bethany about a month ago and LOVE them. I teach first grade and I can wear them all day and through after school errands and my problem feet are still happy. The red ones are ADORABLE! I may have to buy another pair!

    do you think these would work for bunions? thanks!

  3. Kirsten@BarkingDogShoes says:

    I have bunions and they work for me! I have a medium width foot, wider at forefoot due to bunions and I love these boots–no pressure on them at all.

    Will these boots work for hallux rigidus?

  5. Judith Cornish says:

    I have mid-foot arthritis in my right foot and find I need a rocker bottom lace up boot which give me good ankle support – any suggestions?

    Which do you like better for comfort (both look good) between Taos Crave and Cob Hill Bethany?
    The Crave looks a bit sharper to me, but if its heel is the same height as my Kara, a lower heel and higher arch in a good looking boot might be an advantage.
    Thank you.
