Almost gave these 4 stars because I was looking for sturdy-looking classic wellie & bought these during a sale. But I have to rate 5 stars because they are exactly as pictured, and more. The sole is cushy and comfortable. I wear 5&1/2 in most shoes, 5 in pumps and 5 in rain boots. The 5's fit perfectly and are easy to slip on.
Still waffling on the style. I can wear with skinny pants, but rain boots have no zippers so, while the streamlined shaft is sleek, it doesn't let you tuck in pant bottoms too well. Pants fit inside easily but you can't reach down to your ankle to get them right. I love that they are simple and completely sealed. Probably keepers? but I try to avoid purchasing soley because of a low price. I'd rather save my dollars for things I planned on buying. Might get a pair of Keens instead, for the more rugged look I want. These would make me look forward to a rainy day with puddles to stomp in. We live in the central, dry part of our state. If you live somewhere with lots of rain or slush, these are great boots.

Great boot that looks really nice with whatever you wear. I bought these for an upcoming trip to Ireland in the fall and wanted a rain boot that looked good when out and about for lunch and touring. They run big. I wear a 9 in boots and purchased an 8. My daughter wears an 8 and I had to make a return on hers and purchased a 7. We both have slightly narrow feet - and I would say these run just a tad narrow. Great for us, but perhaps not for a wide foot.

Those are very good looking rubber boots. Almost too good looking for my muddy yard! As suggested, I ordered down to 8 from my usual 8.5 size. The length of the boot would have fit just fine, but there wasn't enough toe room. I returned them and ordered size 9, which is a little large on my foot, but with an insole, they are just perfect.

The footbed is comfortable, but my feet are on the wide side so with trouser socks, they felt a little snug. Without socks they were perfect. I'm 5'2 with athletic calves so the shaft length is fine and the width is OK -- though i could not tuck in my sweatpants (which are thick to begin with). I usually wear a size 7 and i got a 7 so it's true to size. I haven't worn these outside yet so I don't know how they will perform in the rain, but the soles aren't your normal 'lug' soles that you would typically find in a rain boot so i don't know if they will be slippery. Since I'm on the fence, I most likely will be returning these even thought the price was great.
