I ordered the shoe version of this model on sale from STP and received another great deal. I am a novice hiker, wanted sturdy waterproof shoes with good support as I have fallen arches. The size of my hiking shoes is 8.5, while they fit, I found that they were a bit short with thicker socks. I typically wear a Sz 8 street shoe, 8.5 athletic shoe. When these hiking boots came up on sale, I decided to try them in. Sz 9. Excellent fit, can put my thinner orthotics in for better support, but I found walking in these boots, as long as I stayed at 5 miles or under my feet didn't hurt without using orthotics. If I walk longer I need my orthotics. I used some waterproof spray on the boots prior to going out on a rainy day walk with my dogs. Feet stayed dry. Please note, I also have a narrow foot. This model and brand came recommended by several hiking sites, while the colors I have are discontinued, I am not disappointed.mshipping was quick and free for my order, plus the price was best I could find online.
