Although I originally bought these boots for the Autumn/Spring seasons, they have kept me dry and warm during this mild winter we're having. They fit true to size and have a very unique style and color (I got" cinnamon"). As claimed, they are waterproof. I have worn them out when it rained and my feet stayed dried. My biggest complain about the boots is that it is a bit tricky to get my feet in, particularly when I'm wearing thicker socks. I found the size to run true and fits comfortably with tick socks, but it's just a bit harder to get my feet inside the boots, so I have to use the aid of a long shoe horn. It also took a while for the boots to be fully broken into. The most uncomfortable part for me was the zipper area around the ankles. It would fold in a way that it would dig into my ankles. The last few times I wore it, it hasn't dig into my ankles it, so I think it's now properly broken into. Otherwise, these are a nice pair of waterproof boots.

Great fit! Wear a size 10. Ordered same. Very comfortable right out of the box. Am 5'9". Height of boot is nice for dresses/skirts and with pants tucked in. Only concern is the finish. Dripped a drop of oily substance on boot. Soaked in and had to work to clean it. Left a lighter shade of brown where cleaned. Finished by spraying the boots w/Obenauf's water shield. Another good product. Hope that helps w/any future stains. Purchased the plain brown. Am very satisfied.

I almost sent these back because they were a bit of an impulse buy but I decided to keep them and I love them! They are well made and so comfortable. I have gotten tons of compliments and requests as to where I purchased them. They run true to size. My only minor complaint is that they could be a little tighter in the calf.

These are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I love how they look too. Great with skirts. I know some reviewers were complaining about them being big around calves, but I have slim calves and they look great. I like how there is enough room to tuck in jeans if I want.

I had a similar pair of Merrells for years and they were very comfortable. I thought these would be similar as they look alike but these are much tighter around the ankle. I hope they loosen over time.
