Actually, the only other boots I own are hiking boots! These are very comfortable, especially with liners. I used the Kamik Hilo Rainboot liners. The boots were a little narrow in the toes area, but liners helped. I usually wear a size 9.5 but the 10 worked just fine. I wore them on plane all the way from Houston, TX to Homer, AK and then some more at our destination at a lodge across Peterson Bay for our son's wedding. I never knew rain boots could be comfortable AND keep my feet dry. The ties in back are "cute" but not the best idea for wearing pants outside the boot.
Glad I got them, even tho. the rainfall and weather in the Houston area does not often require rain boots!

Ordered these boots and when they arrived...wow! They are beautiful. Very true to size - ordered a 9 and am usually a 9. They are so different and very comfortable. Everyone asking where I got them from. The lace up detail on the back adds an extra sparkle to a very elegant gum boot!

These boots have the most awesome style for totally waterproof footwear. The ties in back rock these kicks! The interior makes them a comfy wear - not "rubbery" at all. They are size accurate - for their height they're very easy to put on and take off. Would have given them another star if the center seam weren't visible on one of the boots....take a close look at the enlarged picture. They're so cute it wasn't a serious enough flaw to return them.

I wanted a stylish rain boot to wear in the rain, snow, and slush. I like the subtle pattern of these and the black color will be timeless. They look really cute with black or grey leggings. I like the ribbon up the back. It makes them all the more different and unique. It's not just for decoration though, it also helps adjust the boot to fit larger or more athletic calves. I do have athletic calves so I welcome the flexibility (especially with leggings on). I'm also shorter (5'2) so they cover my entire calf, hitting just below my knee. When they arrived, the left one looked really "dull" compared to the right. I was just about to order a second pair and send this pair back when I noticed it was a waxy film that could be scrapped off. Using my fingernail, a washcloth and a little bit of effort, I was able to remove whatever it was and make it shine. For a boot that retails higher in price, you shouldn't have to do this. I was willing to go through the pain so I wouldn't have to go through the hassle of returning and save myself the return shipping fee (STP does do a great job with returns though). Overall, they are comfortable and appear to be a good quality boot that I would recommend. Also, I usually wear a 7 1/2 or 8 in shoes. I ordered these in a 7 and they fit perfect (with a lighter sock).
