I was looking for a pair of boots like these to wear with jeans in the winter. After reading the reviews about size issues I still ordered my regular size (8) because I wasn't sure about the fit. Turns out that the 8 was too big in length. I was also surprised that the toe box wasn't as roomy as described. I don't have fat feet but have had foot surgery that requires some height by the big toe. Anyway, I reordered the 7 1/2 which was the correct size lengthwise but now I had toe volume issues (not enough). I was pretty surprised because lots of reviewers said that had plenty of room by the toes etc. That was the ultimate reason I had to return them. The other is that the black leather is so stiff I couldn't imagine it ever breaking them in. By the way the laces are really long and detract from the overall appearance after you tie them.
