Runs small

Reviewed by Character from CA on Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Order 1/2 size to 1 full size up from your normal shoe size. I got an 8 (I normally wear 71/2), and even that feels a little tight (narrow) at the toes, but leather should stretch a little with wear. They are not slip-on shoes due to the tightness of fit. If I wanted to wear thick socks in these, I should have gotten 81/2.
On the bright side, the construction of these shoes is really rugged, and they seem like they will last a long time. I'm a bit disappointed that there's no shearling under my soles, only top and sides of the shoe have the shearling lining.
I do have high arches, but I think the arch support in this shoe is slightly misplaced (due to the general sizing issue), so it seems to be more forward than would fit my foot. Nevertheless, it does not cause any discomfort during wear, nor do they chafe anywhere.
All in all, I think these shoes will be useful in keeping my feet warm and dry in rainy CA winter when running errands around town.
