The Good

  • Comfortable, sturdy heel
  • Fold-down insulated layer for versatility

The Bad

  • Difficult to get on and off
  • Thin, weak laces
THE VERDICT

For a pair of warm, comfortable heels that can take you from the office to the snow-filled streets, the Timberland Swazey heels were more than sufficient. The fleece lining and waterproof leather kept feet warm and dry, and the wide heel and lugged outsole made for a stable shoe on wintery sidewalks. Compared to other boots tested, the Timberlands were cute for all types of outings, but were not as comfortable for all-day wear if on your feet a lot. 

FULL REVIEW

Style
The Timberland Swazey heels are perfect for out on the town when you want to look nice, but still feel comfortable and sturdy on your feet. The heels have a five-inch waterproof leather shaft with suede accents at the top, and an inner fleece lining on the shaft that can fold over to change up the look from swanky to cozy. 

Comfort
For three-inch heels, these were comfortable going out and wearing to the office because of the wide, thick heel and snug fit. After a few hours standing and walking though, feet became slightly uncomfortable on the top of the foot above the arch. 

Traction
On icy and snowy sidewalks, the Swazeys had decent traction with the rubber lugged outsole, but were not as stable as other boots tested considering they do have three-inch heels. 

Warmth
With the fleece lining, the boots kept feet warm and dry while walking around, but feet grew slightly cold when standing still in below freezing temperatures. 

Quality/Durability
A few markings were noticed on theleather after initial wearing.
