These boots are awesome. I wanted some brown lace-ups that were more rugged-looking than most other boots I'd been seeing. The color is lighter than what they look like on this site & than what I was looking for, so that's why I'm giving 4 stars. I usually wear a size 9, but other reviews warned that these ran big & that one should order a half-size down. They didn't have an 8 & 1/2 whenever I looked so I didn't order for months. I kept eyeing them, though, so I finally decided to risk ordering an 8. They fit great (with thin socks) & are pretty comfortable. I just got them last week & I've worn them at least 5 times. There was no breaking in period necessary; the 2nd day I wore them involved walking around downtown for 3 hours, & my feet were fine. I'm very happy I went for an 8 & finally bought these boots.
