cute boot, comment on fit

Reviewed by kbee from Illinois on Thursday, July 16, 2015
I have not had these boots long enough to comment on durability, but would like to comment on fit. After reading the reviews I chose to order my original shoe size of 7 1/2, but had to exchange them for an 8. My feet are not extremely wide, but I have a high arch and instep which often creates a problem for the fit of my shoes. Unfortunately I should have ordered 1/2 size up because while length was fine, the boots were much too tight with a mid-weight pair of socks. The left boot was a bit tighter at the bottom grommet above the big toe, and was still that way with the larger size, but maybe it's just my feet. All in all, if you are planning to wear a mid-weight sport or hiking sock, I would order 1/2 size up unless you have narrow feet.
While I have not yet done any major trekking with these boots, they are proving to be quite comfortable and I sloshed thru a few puddles and walked thru the wet grass and they kept my feet dry. I particularly like the 2 grommets at the ankle, allowing me to keep the arch a little looser and yet keep the ankle tighter for support.
