Shoes & Socks $14 KXOS Grade: A
I love these black boots. If only her meet shoes were made to this quality! Our Kirsten wears this pair most of all! This set or boots also comes with three pairs of Kirsten's socks.....very nice if you ever want other dolls to play dress up with Kirsten, or if those little collectors in your home loose them
The black and white are from her Flannel Underware Tan Horizontal stripe are from her Meet outfit Tan vertical are from her Apron Dress

I love the black boots too. They're soft and easy to get on and off and the laces are real laces, not nylon. Originally this set came with Kirsten's Meet boots. I traded my extra Meet boots for the black ones and Susanna is thrilled with them. She can play pioneer and not worry about her big feet breaking Kirsten's old boots.
Ooo I bought these and they are my favorite boots so far! So sturdy. I wish her Meet boots were more this quality too instead of the squishy soft kind they are now...imagine walking 10 miles in the prairie in those lugging pots and pans! Eek!
The boots - they are made from the same plasticky-canvasy material as her meet boots but they pull it off well. I love how study they are! The laces have changed over the years, now they are cotton fray checked strings rather than the original laces with aglets. They have pretty much replaced Kirsten's brown boots in our house because they go so well with many different outfits! Highly recommend them, A+.
The socks - in concept, they are supposed to be identical replacements for Kirsten's meet, birthday, and winter socks, but they actually vary slightly in color so hey, there's a little variety. I was really glad for the meet pair as the ones Kirsten came in have not held up very well. A

I generally avoid Mattel made shoes so my 3 item order of shoes and socks was a bit odd, but I had high hopes for this set as I had great luck with Kit's work boots. My only complaint about the set is that it comes crammed into a box that is too small for it. The boots fit my PM Felicity, are easy to get on and off and the laces are long enough to tie easily. The material on the boots is maybe a bit thin and mine don't have metal grommets for the lacing (I saw a set on display at a store that did have them), but they are soft and flexible and seem well made. I really liked the socks, as I didn't have any of the outfits they came with originally so they are not duplicates. One pair (tan and brown striped) is the pair that comes with the birthday dress, the second set (orange and tan stripes) are the same socks that come on the doll, and the third (black and grey striped) are the ones that came with her Flannel Underwear. A nice set that I get plenty of use out of. A

I considered this to be one of those necessary evil items to buy, because, let's face it, Kirsten's "Meet" booties are just atrocious.
The new boots do not have eyelets, which I am told is a historic detail? They're easy to get on and off, but more importantly, Kirsten looks better in them than in those awful brown booties!
The socks are the same ones you get with Kirsten's Meet, Birthday, and Flannel Undies. I don't think they're anything special, per se, but the fun thing about them is that you can use them to share with another AG doll, which is what I use them for.
I think the best shot of the boots on the doll is with this shot of her Meet dress...
