The zipper pulls on the boots can become entangled, posing a fall hazard. Synclaire Brands has received 3 reports of the zipper pulls becoming entangled to each other, including one injury that occurred when a child wearing the boots attempted to untangle the zipper pulls. The child lost her balance and hit her head on the sidewalk, causing a laceration to her forehead that required stitches.

The boots have zippers with gold-tone SW logo zipper pulls on the inside side of the boots. The model name and size is printed on a white tag inside the top of the boots.
