These boots just showed up at my door today, got them for a stellar price on S&C. They fit my feet/ankles just fine, although I haven't tried them with socks on yet. There is not a ton of extra wiggle room but they don't feel overwhelmingly tight by any means. They feel pretty stiff/heavy duty, very good construction, but I guess I thought that they would be a little bit thicker than they are, that's why I only gave them 4 stars. Anyways, I'm very happy with my purchase and I'm eager to put them to use!
