Propet Tatum Review
Propet might be best known for making incredible walking shoes, dedicated to ensuring that customers get the best walking experience as possible. They make great quality footwear for a variety of people, giving you comfort, value, and a plethora of size and width options. The Propet Tatum Slouch Mid Calf boots are just one of the many items they produce. They have a great look to them that customers really seem to like. They come in both black and brown so you are sure to be able to pair them with most outfits. Whether heading for a night out or going to the market these boots are going to fit right in.
The moderate price tag might turn some people away but they are highly durable and will last you quite a while, not needing to be replaced any time soon. They, unfortunately, are not the most comfortable, as they are lacking in underfoot cushioning. That can be easily rectified by changing out the removable footbed with an insole that will best suit your personal needs. Other than the underfoot experience right out of the box, they are super comfortable and do not need to be broken in. Overall, customers really seem to like these boots.

The rubber of sole works together with the tread pattern on the bottom to help make sure you have a decent amount of traction while you are out and about. You are not going to have to worry too much about your feet slipping out from underneath you just because your shoes were not up to the task. On wet or dry surfaces, these are going to be able to hold a decent grip to keep you upright.
Unfortunately, some customers were just not happy with the footbed of this product, saying that they were disappointed in them. One mentioned that when ordering them you might want to make sure that you have a little extra room in them for a new insole or insert to give you a more comfortable underfoot experience.
They have a Nylex lining inside of them to help give you a more pleasant in-shoe experience. The uppers themselves offer a decent amount of ventilation but mix that with this lining and you are sure to have feet that stay both cool and dry all day long. It is important to ensure that your footwear of choice has a decent amount of ventilation, especially if you are going to be wearing them for long periods of time or in warmer conditions. Since the air can get into the foot chamber you can bet that the air will cool down your feet, but it will also allow any sweat to evaporate quickly and leave the foot chamber. The Nylex materials help this process by collecting the sweat or any other moisture and beading it up into droplets that will roll off the lining to help keep you dry. These are going to promote a healthier environment for your feet and help eliminate some of the stinky odor that can occur in your shoes.
Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot of information out there on the exact weight of these boots. That being said, there are no complaints from customers out there about them being overly heavy so it can be assumed that even though they are not the lightest, they are not too heavy either.
As for arch support, there is not really a whole lot right out of the box. There have been some complaints by a few reviewers that stated the footbed was very disappointing and did not give them what they were expecting. That being said, the insole is removable and you can always add something that will better fit your needs. You can get something that will give you the support that you need, where you need it to improve your in-shoe experience, however, they are not the best right out of the box.
The great thing about this product is that you will have that freedom to move. The slouch uppers are made out of soft leather that will bend and move with you while you are on the go. Additionally, the sole will allow for a certain amount of flex so they will bend with your foot with each step that you take. If you are going to be doing a decent amount of walking around in these you will be able to appreciate the amount of flexibility these can offer.
They are only available in two color options but customers have no problems at all with that. They come in both black and brown so they will go with just about anything. Whether you are heading for a night on the town or just wanna spruce up your everyday casual wear these boots are going to be a great choice and they will fit right in.
The rest of the boots, however, have an amazing amount of comfort. The heel is just the right height as to not make it awkward or uncomfortable to walk in. The soft leather uppers are flexible and breathable to help give you some wiggle room without sacrificing support, as well as keeping your feet cool and dry.
It appears that these are running pretty true to size so that is going to help take some of the guesswork out of choosing what to order. You can generally just go with the size you would normally wear for other similar products. If you are unsure you might want to take a little glance at a size chart just to make sure you are getting the correct fit the first time so you do not have to worry about receiving an ill-fitting pair that will need to be exchanged in the future. Please note that they do go midway up your calf so if you have bigger legs then they might not fit you properly.
