At the same time I received my ReCashmere Stroopwafel Sweater (reviewed here), I also requested their Boss Boot in black ReKnit. I love a good, simple ankle boot. I’ve worn through two pairs of black BP Trolley booties (yes, I ordered the same pair twice!) and was looking to replace them.
I first tried Everlane’ ReKnit material with their Day Glove flats last year, and wanted to try them out in their updated ReKnit pattern. The ReKnit Boss Boot was originally launched earlier this year at $156, but the price has since been revised down to a palatable $115 because #2020.
While I have worn Everlane flats and sneakers, this was my first time trying their boots. The original leather Boss Boot runs narrow, and the ReKnit version does as well. I have narrow feet and my regular size 7.5 fits well.
If you have wider feet you may want to try both your regular size and sizing up 0.5. On the one hand, the ReKnit material has some give to accommodate various widths, but the toebox tapers fairly aggressively!
I like that this new micro-waffle-esque ReKnit pattern is still soft / stretchy, but has more hold than the previous ribbed variation. I recall worrying that the Day Glove would slip off my narrow foot, but I’m not concerned with these.
While the ReKnit material can be spot cleaned, they can’t be run through the washing machine due to the leather trim. This is not a dealbreaker for me, as I don’t wash most of my shoes aside from my Rothy’s. In fact, I like the extra leather reinforcement at the heel, it provides a nice bit of structure.
The only downside of this material is the same for all knits / fabric – you may be able to see the outline of your foot. I have almost-bunions on my feet, and you can see them stick out a bit. However, like with my Rothy’s and Allbirds, this doesn’t bother me personally.
Overall, I like how sleek this style is, with the narrow ankle and pointed toe. It’s definitely on trend while also being practical – I’ve jogged across a parking lot in these with ease.
If you prefer a rounded toe, then the ReKnit Day Boot may be a good option. These also come in a wool ReKnit, like this beautiful Oatmeal version (though personally, I’d be too scared to wear such a light color!)
I hope you find this review helpful, and as always, if you have any questions please feel free to comment!
