Not extreamly padded, but comfy with proper socks. Super quality leather and well made. Boot will last and should get even better with time. Could go 1/2 size up and some people should and some shouldn't. I have a slim leg and foot- I bought my size and it just fits with a not thick sock. A thick sock for more cushion or warmth- or if you have a foot that's a liitle wide you may want to 1/2 size it up. I found that the leather is so good that it should stretch out just a tad to really give me a nice fit. I would not want to go up and although my foot is slim its not overly slim!
I recommend boot with casual jeans like levi's, western wear, ect. They are lovely and rustic. I can't wear them with some of my modern, high end dressy jeans. These should last a long time and are very classic not trendy so you will never go out of style with these and this makes them worth the money! Get some boot butter to seal and soften them up even more and you'll be blessed. The socks I am wearing with them are lightweight slim wool- not ultrathin but not bulky at all.
Also- liked the way it was laced when shipped to me- very cool BUT I will probibly relace it the old fashioned way because I think it will be easier to adjust this way- the laces are leathery not material.

I sure don't need another pair of boots, but I just couldn't resist these. I know I will wear them for years, and often. They can be dressed up or down, and are a beautiful color. Full disclosure: I have not worn them more than just around the house to test them out. They seem very comfortable and stable, despite the height. And with the laces, I can adjust them to custom fit my feet and ankles!

There boots are beautiful, the leather smells wonderful and feels great, but if you have a wider foot I don't believe these boots are made for you. I feel my foot is a normal width, but even loosening the laces, the boot was still way too tight. I ordered my size, but believe I could have used 1/2 to 1 size larger. Not sure if I am going to try a different size or just return.
