I live out on forest land that was converted to a very large housing reserve. There are about 26 miles of gravel roads and dirt multi-use trails for recreation. I have had a few foot surgeries so I needed to give up running and go to walking to save me from more pain and surgeries. I have 2 large dogs that need to be exercised daily so I needed a super comfy stable shoe that I could wear in all types of weather, especially rain since I live in WA.state. I took a chance and ordered this shoe without ever hearing about the brand or trying one on, but it seemed to fit the bill for what I was looking for. The low price made it ok for me to take the risk. I ordered a 7.5 and they seem a bit long compared to my asics I wear in 7.5, but I tend to wear a bit thicker sock when walking or hiking so the extra length is not bad. Pleny of width for my slightly wide foot but not sloppy. They are made with Gore-tex so are supposed to be waterproof, but strangly I have not had to put that claim to the test yet. The sole of this shoe is a slight rocker shape so it is a very cushiony soft ride. So far I am very happy with my purchase and I hope they stand up to lots of miles of wet muddy walking. Perhaps consider a half size smaller than what you currently wear.
