Glad I Purchased

Well some wouldn't think it, but it can get cold-ish down here in Georgia. My sister from Iowa, while visiting during Christmas, commented on how much more humid it was down here and how much colder it made 30 degrees feel compared to the same temperature in Iowa. I've been wanting a pair of warm boots for my more casual, lazy and sedentary days (i.e., weekends) when, during the winter I like to wear flannel lined khakis, chamois shirts, sweaters, etc. and these fit the bill.

I just got them, but I'm lovin' them. Makes me wish it were November instead of February so I'd have all those winter months ahead of me during which to wear these.

I must say, as other have commented, the construction seems flawless as does the leather. These are very nicely made indeed – I have some quirky compulsion to buy extras of things that I like and store them away; I'm somewhat tempted to buy another pair of these in case some tragedy renders these boots unwearable (no, I don't know what would cause that either).

With respect to sizing, when wearing dress shoes with thin dress merino wool socks, I wear a 9.5D in Allen Edmonds, Alden, and Brooks Brothers shoes. For tennis shoes, running shoes, and most casual shoes and boots, I wear a 10D. The boots that I have are a 10D and when worn with boot socks or ragg wool socks, they are pleasantly snug. A 10.5 might be an option, but I think, given more wear and bending, and a bit of compression of the shearling with wear the 10 will be the best fit. Accordingly, for a boot or casual shoe, I would say that these are true to size. I would also say that the width is a true "D" width.
