Overall quality of the build and materials is exceptional, but they are a bear to get on and off. There is plenty of room in the toe box once on, though. I normally wear an 11.5 but bought an 11, as they run about a half size big.
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.
