Run a little large but excellent quality

Reviewed by Mary from NY on Sunday, December 24, 2017
I normally wear 8.5 in regular shoes, a 9.5 in running shoes and most hiking boots. I have a slightly wide foot. I got these in a 9.5. Tried them in the store and thought they were great. The 9 fit as well but I opted for 9.5 since they were my regular size and I figured hiking socks would take some room (I was not wearing them when i tried them on). They are excellent quality and I used them for the first time on an overnight backpacking trip with a short hike (4-5 miles total). Hike had slight ascents and descents, relatively flat and some rock scrambles. They held up well, even though they were a little big in the ankles and length. The shoes laces are very long. I tightened them as much as I could and I wore a pair of smart wool socks, but still felt some slippage. They were waterproof, as I was slushing through mud and it was rainy. Insulation was just ok- my toes did get a little cold still.

In hindsight I should have gotten the size 9. With these I will wear another pair of socks or see if I can give away.
