I really liked these boots. Unfortunately because of a motorcycle accident I broke my left foot and that caused my ankle to over-pronate, every time I would walk it would cause a really bad pressure point on my ankle. I realized it wasn't the boots, because the right foot was perfect.I'm a 10.5 and I bought them in a 10.5 the fit was true. Stiff, but still good flex. I ended up returning them and getting the Burton Ambush, which resolved my ankle issue.
