I deliberated for a while about what size to buy. I didn't want to over emphasize the advice to buy a size lower when there seemed to be a vocal population saying the boots were true to size. This was not a good idea. The boots came today and they are exactly a size too large on my 11.5 sized feet, I should have gone for the 10.5!
I'll return them for the lower size because I think they're going to be very nice. I think 4/5 is fair. They feel warm and seem very durable. When you put your jean legs over the top they're quite handsome. The tops look a little lazy though, not a fashion product.

These are great. I think they are true to size, but the top cuff may be small for bigger folks. I am a skinny dude My feet slip in and out easily, giving them a sense of wear slippers in the snow. I think these fit smaller people better, for us they are luxurious.

I am a woman with feet size 11. I generally wear men's size 81/2. The 81/2 in this boot fits well. The heel is well fitting for me, it might be tight for a man with wide heels. The toe box is roomy. Perhaps the problems of size have been solved.
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.
