These boots are very good looking. I usually wear between a 7.5 and an 8. I ordered both sizes so I could find the right fit, but sadly they both are going back. The 7.5's once I was able to get them on fit fine in the foot with an everyday gym sock. The problem I had was when I tried to walk- the area on the tops of the foot where the leather meets the rubber would bend down and stab the top of my foot. I could take maybe 2 steps comfortably. Then I tried the 8 and they were huge. I could not believe that it was only a 0.5 size bigger, I had to check to see that they had not sent me a 9 by accident, but it was an 8. The 8 was big. Both inside and just looking down at them they made my feet look huge. My feet were moving inside the boot when I was walking, and I did feel a little pressure where the rubber and leather met again. I don't know if over time when they break in it would go away, but for $200 I couldn't justify wearing painful boots.
They did seem like they would be warm and dry though.
