Here's the trouble with these. It's not the product, per se, rather the instructions by Sierra Trading Post to buy a whole size larger because these run small. I would say buy a half size. I ordered a whole size as recommended by Sierra Trading Post and they were too big.
As for the product, the cuff is not very wide and has no elasticity to fit over certain pants nicely. The materials are fantastic though, so these boots are what you make of them if you know what you're getting into.

I really liked these boots. they were for me and I can wear a mens 7 but I couldn't get these on. very narrow entrance and wont work if you have a high arch I guess. I wear an 8.5 or 9 in womens. but they are very nice boots and I would have kept them IF I could get them on....

This boot was easy to take on and off and is very comfortable for wearing around town. It is warm enough for brief periods of time in below freezing temperatures. The sole is comfortable and grips the ground well. I wear a size 14–15M and the size 15 fit exactly as expected- a touch large so I could fit in a thick winter sock. I have had no problem sliding the boot on and off and the right and left boots are the same size unlike in other reviews. I treated the leather with Sno-Seal and had dry feet after many exposures to slush from melting snow plus the salt from the sidewalks doesn't stick to the treated leather. I look forward to many good years from these quality boots.
They're very light boots, weighing in at 1lb, 2oz each.
I personally wouldn't buy these boots for heavy work - I suspect the felt tops wouldn't hold up the way leather would, and the uppers are a very soft leather that scratch pretty easily. That is just my guess though, based on their look - I've not used them long enough to know how well they'd hold up first hand, and they may in fact prove very durable.

Boot weighs approx. 1-1/2 - 2lbs. Not heavy. Worn with a good (smart wool) heavy weight sock, they are quite warm.
