I had to buy a smaller size in this shoe but I was not sure of my shoe size since I usually wear running and I also have a long narrow foot so it is extremely hard to find shoes to fit. I wear thick socks and tighten them as much as possible. They were so comfortable from the time I took them out of the box. I was totally surprised since as I said before I usually wear running shoes. I am debating getting another pair I like them so much. I use them only for work and they are rugged and protect my feet.

I wanted a heavy duty shoe for work. I usually wear running shoes and sandals. I was a bit scared to wear the shoes but they were so comfortable. I did have to return them for a smaller size. I went down a 1/2 size because you usually have to go up 1/2 size in running shoes. I was worried that the full size smaller would be too short but they were fine in fact they are still big but I have a narrow foot, if I went down a 1/2 size more they night be too short. I can wear thick socks. There was no break in time wore them 9 hrs and do physical work with a fast pace. They are heavy but didn't even notice. I would like to buy more.

I live in Hawaii so I am not used to real heavy duty shoes. I needed a heavy duty shoe for work. I usually wear my old running shoes but needed more protection in the toe area. I tried Keens but I have a narrow foot. I have tried so many other brands and was about to give up. This was my last shot and they were perfect. I was worried about the leather and being heavy duty that I would have to break them in but I used them 9hrs and I am on my feet moving working hard and they were comfortable all day. All the shoes I own are running shoes or Keen sandles I wasn't sure on my real foot size. I wear an 8.5 in running shoes but normaly you size up 1/2 size so I got an 8 its a little loose I don't know if a 7.5 would be too short. So I put they run big. I can still use them because they lace up close to your ankle. I am really fussy about looks comfort and fit. They work for me.

I can't give the best review of these because they are simply too big. They are HEAVY and I would only use them for work. I found them almost too heavy for my needs, which is why I am not replacing them with a smaller size. If I still worked in a dangerous environment, ie. getting your feet squashed, I would recommend these.

I was able to start wearing them all day right away and they never hurt, there was not that usual "break-in period" that you have with most new shoes. I needed a pair of casual shoes that weren't tennis shoes and look good with whatever pants/jeans you wear. These fit the bill.
