lots of varying feedback on this boot, looked at reviews on amazon as well. here's my 2 cents. i have a wider foot but typically wear most womens brands in regular/medium width. for reference, the length of my foot is a perfect 8.5 but sometimes i have to go up to a 9 depending on the maker, i am consistently a 39 in campers, dankso and birkenstock. i can't stand hiking boots, most of them are synthetic and uncomfortable especially the water resistant ones...what i really needed were a pair of boots that were weatherproof for camping and light hiking with good support and comfort. i was surprised about the price on these blundstone and i know they are imperfect however i couldn't see anything out of the ordinary that would affect it's performance. i went with a 6 M, (there was no 5.5 which is the recommended size for an 8.5). i wore these around the house with thick socks for about 30 minutes...my toes spread out nicely and they are extremely comfortable right out of the box. those who said they weren't comfortable probably didn't get the right size. i could have gone to a 5.5 if they were in wide, as there is a bit of length in the toe box. i also read reviewers who said the toe box was narrow which i also found surprising because my toes are quite chubby and i had no problem there either. i used to wear doc martens in my youth...the style is similar without the lacing. even though returns are a pain with STP, these are a deal so i would go for it if you are seeking an alternative all weather boot. i am very happy with my purchase.
