I love Teva sandals. With high hopes I bought these in my usual size 8.5, and they fit just fine once I was able to get them on. They are hard to get on, I had to loosen all the laces to the toe to get them on. Once on the sizing was good though. Cute style, but they are built much more lightweight than what I was looking for. The traction isn't very grippy, they are thin-walled all around, and the soles are pretty thin. Not sure how long they'd hold up to hiking in the mountains on hilly & rocky trails. They seem like a casual sneaker-boot. I walked 4 miles in them and decided that I needed something thicker/more durable for the types of hikes I do, so I returned them. Ankle support is adequate tho. Didn't test their waterproof abilities, but they had the inner liner like other waterproof boots. I think that if someone was looking for a very casual/sporty lightweight boot for around town or flat easy hikes, these would be fine, but it's not really a 'hiking' boot imo.
