Overall the boots are adorable. I would rate them a five based on quality and looks. And being able to buy the youth sizes (because they run extremely large) saved me more than 50% compared to adult pricing. However, as others have mentioned in their reviews, they run large. Very large! I am a woman's 6. I originally ordered a 5. I figured due to the material and reviews they may stretch a little. The 5 was huge! A friend of mine who wears a woman's 7.5 said they were a little loose on her. I exchanged them for the 4 which fit much better. Still a little more roomy than I'd prefer but I'm afraid to go a whole size smaller. Also I really love the look but don't love the price of the adult version. If they came in half sizes I would have went down one. I suggest ordering 2 to 2.5 sizes smaller than you would normally for a child or woman.

I wear a woman's size 8 and my foot is 24.7 millimeters long. I asked to check the insole sizing of the 6 and 7 youth, which I was told were 25 millimeters and 27.5 millimeters respectively. I ordered the 6, expecting them to be a little tight but not bad. When they arrived they were GIANT! I measured the insole myself and the youth 6 is closer to 27.5-28 millimeters. No where near a 25 millimeter measurement. My fiance who wears a mens 10 wide can get his foot in them, and while they are a little tight, they fit him - his foot measures 28 millimeters. So in short, a youth 6 somehow would fit a MEN's 9 - 9.5 comfortably. Id say thats way off, and way off from even what I was told when I inquired before ordering in hopes to avoid this issue to start. These are NOT children's sizes or youth sizes. I was really excited about these, but they look like clown shoes on me sadly :( Hopefully the 5 will fit, and I am waiting on an insole measurement for that, though at this point, who knows how accurate that will be. Not thrilled I now have to exchange these when that was the point of asking for the insole measurement to start. I give 2 stars because they are cute, but otherwise Id give them 1-2 none for the sizing headache these are causing and the slow replies with CS.

The boots were well made and looked great, but overall seemed large. I ordered a size 1 for my daughter who currently wears a 13.5. Her feet were swimming. I wish they came in a 13. Really cute but had to return.
