Other reviewers recommended ordering half a size up which I did: they fit just right as ordered.
I had this shoe make and model 4 to 5 years ago and loved them except: 1. The top two lace loops were metal hooks which shredded laces every 2 months or so, and 2. The rubber toe caps delaminated across the top in about two years.
Hi-Tec resolved my first concern with this shoe as the laces now pass only through eyelets, a significant improvement from my point of view. Only time will tell if toe cap attachment has also been improved.
I like these shoes for their light weight, comfort, lack of flashy-ness, and go almost anywhere capability. They are not water-proof but I wear them in the rain without much negative impact and if I realy get them soaked they're dry by morning.

Knew Hi-Tecs ran small from previous experience, but this is ridiculous. I normally wear an 11, so I ordered 12s, one full size larger and my toe butts up against the front of the shoe. Ridiculous. Giving them to a buddy whose foot is a half-size smaller. Won't make the mistake of ordering Hi-Tecs again.

I have size 13 feet, but I ordered size 14 shoes since STP advised ordering a half size larger. The shoes came much too small even though I ordered one full size larger than I wear. Very disappointed since the shoes seem awesome in every other way. Big footed people, be warned.
