I ordered these boots recently in the suede color. The
colors are great and will match with many many outfits. I
live in Iowa, and my family lives in Chicago, so these will
get lots and lots of use! I really like that they have the
rubber on the bottom. This will be very practical for the
slush that seems to be on the ground constantly. Sizing:
Unlike other reviews I read online, these boots fit true to
size. I am a size 8, ordered a size 8, and they fit fine.
They weren't too tight in any area. I can tighten the laces,
and they fit perfectly around my calf. The only thing
fit-wise is that they are a little stiff. I'm sure this will
loosen up with wear.
These boots rock right out of the box. Have worn these boots
on several 3-4 day trips in Western NC, WV, VA, and NH. Some
of those trips were spent hiking all day in the rain, and
through streams and muckity-muck, and my feet stayed warm
and dry the whole time. They also accommodate strap-on
crampons quite well too.
