I have tried on three pair of the Oboz Yellowstone's in three different stores and each pair was sized differently. At the REI Flagship store in Denver both shoes in my size were too snug. A half size larger made them too long. At the Ft. Collins store the fit was accurate but I could not bring myself to pay [$] for them even though they felt very comfortable. STP had the last pair in my size sent to my house from their Reno store. The left shoe was a bit snug where as the right shoe was very tight. Too bad because with the extra one day discount these were only [$]. I have never encountered a shoe that varies so wildly in size. Because of Oboz's inability to size a shoe it makes me wonder about the rest of their quality control in the shoes construction.I also got a pair of the Asolo FSN85 boots for [$]on the same one day special which I love. For a light hiking shoe I picked up a pair of Danner Exo Edge on clearance from Sportsman's Warehouse in Thornton, CO for [$].

Fortunately I read the previous reviews and ordered up 1/2 size, which seems to provide a good fit. Initially I found where the top of the tongue and laces hit my ankle to be a bit uncomfortable on the right foot. But after wearing for a while it felt ok. Another minor issue is that the laces reach almost to the top of the tongue, which I addressed by running the laces from top to bottom around the top hook, rather than the normal way. I liked them enough to order a 2nd pair as backup for when these wear out in a couple of years.
