What’s Better? Zipped Boots Or Slip On

We Have The Answer!

Truthfully, you are the deciding factor. Zipped boots and pull-on styles have unique advantages, but at the end of the day, what you want out of your next pair is going to tilt the scales one way or the other. Now, who’s ready to get started? Here’s what you need to know!

Zipped boots and slip-on kinds both save you time

Are you always rushing from place to place? Do you need shoes that can keep pace with your hectic schedule? If you’re sick of struggling with laces when you’re trying to get out of the door, then Spendless Shoes has the styles for you!

Zipped boots can get on and off of your feet in no time. Ladies who want something that will take seconds to slip in and out of will find these are a breath of fresh air. So, where do pull-on styles stand for ease of wear?

Actually, seamless designs a worthy contender for zipped boots as the fastest fit onto feet. All you have to do is wriggle your feet inside and let the elastic side guests work their magic.

However, there are some distinct disadvantages too.

It hardly happens, but ladies who do up their zipped boots absentmindedly could snag low-hanging pant legs or other material in their teeth. Getting clothes caught in the fastening is annoying at best and cloth-ripping at worst. Meanwhile, a pull-on pair could fold over, led to a lot of jumping, or force you to twist your ankles and feet into odd positions if you are struggling to fit inside.

While it’s rare for customers to have these problems with slip-on or zipped boots at Spendless, we still think it’s worth mentioning before you start shopping.

So far, we’ve been focusing on shorter ankle-high styles

However, if you want a tall pair, your choice of pull-on or zipped boots narrows significantly. This all comes down to fabrics more than functions, but there is a focus on the smoothest transition as well.

For instance, the majority of our knee-high looks are zipped boots. These shiny synthetics would make an awkward pull-on style as the elastic panels would crease and the material can be rigid.

Even our faux suede thigh-highs are zipped boots! While the closure is only small and the majority of the fit involves sliding them on, this feature lends extra support and more secure wear.

As a key part of the look, the decision to go with zipped boots or a pull-on can dictate the aesthetic that you pull-off.

What about the look?

Zipped boots capitalise on their ability to host a fashionable tassel or metallic charm. Every time that these decorative shoes are zipped up, you get to enjoy a more accessible tab and a fun add-on in one! Simple, yet effortlessly stylish, subtle add-ons like these add a lovely feel to zipped boots.

At the same time, if you’re partial to a pull-on style, you’ll get to enjoy a smooth finish that zipped boots can’t give you! Unlined designs make the sleekest, chicest, silhouettes. We wouldn’t fault you for passing zipped boots up for a slip-on on this case. One of our most fashionable slide-on shoes is Chelsea boots, which have an honourable spot in our range for women, men, and kids. The entire look is based around the elastic panels and makes an effortlessly iconic casual statement.
