I was a little concerned about the fit when I read previous reviews about these boots. However, for me they're just about perfect! I have a bunion on my right foot but the boots have a wide enough toe box to accommodate for it. The heel height is great (not too high) and the aggressive tread on the soles make these a very sturdy winter boot. I bought the grey swirl print because the color blends well with my navy blue dress coat.

Long story short: I tried on the size 7, 7.5, and 8. I'm not sure if the other reviewer who suggested maybe some vanity sizing was going on got a mislabled pair, but I'm usually a 7.5-8 depending on the brand, and I'm an 8 in these. The forefoot is quite tight (the opposite of a Keen fit there). The heel is a comfortable height. There is not much arch support, but except for a Born boot what does? The tread is nicely aggressive. The boot is quite tight around the calf, I'm a climber and may be able to wear leggings inside these boots, otherwise these are under-the-jeans boots or something to wear with a skirt/dress.

The shaft of these boots is huge! I am 5'6" and 124 lbs - ideal weight and very fit. These boots are ridiculous! They stood out a good two inches from my trim and muscular legs. Sending back and of course at my expense. Thanks again STP.
Color is a metallic, shiny blue grey. Not like the photo. Very disappointed but mostly the fit is the most shocking. Why is everything and I mean everything vanity sized?!

These were delivered in only the STP box, no packaging so they slid around while in transport. Also, the box had been taped with only one piece of tape and it was barely hanging on once I receive the package. This is a shortcut I've noticed STP making for at least a year. I don't appreciate it since shipping is rarely ever free and never are returns.
I have another pair of these boots that I bought last year in the dark brown leopard print. They have a matte finish with almost a velvety nap. These are like the material of a soft-shell coat, the striping is not as defined as I expected and the color, to me, had a blue cast. The reflectance of the material might have been what made it look bluer rather than grayer. I can't imagine wearing these. They look cheap.
Sizing - maybe these are for plus-sized women or people with really, really large calves but these stood out from my legs a good inch or more. I am trim and very fit so my calves are small; I am 5'6" and 120 lbs for reference. My feet were swimming in the boots and maybe mine were incorrectly sized although I checked both and each said 6.5 which is my size. I do not recommend these boots if you want a sleek, streamlined look - they are oversized and bulky. Have boots now gone to vanity sizing?!

These boots just might be the answer to "keeping it classy" while attempting to endure the inclement New England winter.Hoping that the sleek microfiber and Gore Tex keep my feet dry and warm, without looking like an Arctic Expeditionary force! Sturdy treads on the bottom. These are not knee-high. The biggest concern that I had was they run small and a tiny bit narrow. Ordering a half-size up corrected the problem.
