The boot has a wide toe box which is comfortable for women with wide feet. I normally wear a size10, but the 9.5 fits well. Its large enough to accommodate my foot in a nicely padded hiking sock. This boot has a stiff sole which protects the foot when hiking on rocks or scree. The sole is made by Vibram. If you don't like stiff soles on a boot, you may not like this boot.
The boot is completely waterproof. I have tested it by having to hike along creek beds. My foot never got damp and the boot always kept my feet dry and warm. The leather uppers provide excellent support for the ankle. The boot also has a rubberized toe scuff guard. This is a nice feature and protects the toe.
This is a wonderful hiking boot for backpacking and day hikes.
