I saw a few reviews about sizing up and down. Decided to bite the bullet and get my actual size 14. They fit great and I was wearing tube socks. Delivery was quick and had no troubles whatsoever during any part of the process. I enjoyed the shoe, the site, the deal I received and the humor that came along with it.

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....
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.
