Splurged on these to replace my cheap wellie knock-offs which split at the seams a few months after buying. Best investment ever. Upstate New York is full of puddles and slush and Kamik
Ellie lets me tromp through them all with no leaking or wetness. They look great, feel great, keep my feet dry and I love that they are made in North America and are recyclable. I usually wear an 8 1/2 or 9, ordered these a 9. They fit excellently with tights or thin socks
(a bit of extra room) and are snug with thick socks
. The boot part is contoured to your foot and ankle so it is a bit of a push to get in. I'd recommend sizing up if you don't like a tight fit. I am 5'9 with 15 inch calves, the shaft ends below the widest part of my calf and is slightly snug on my lower leg, as are all tall boots
are on me. Whenever I wear these out out I am complimented on the deep red shiny shade. These are great looking rain boots
, and I am pleased I chose them over Kamik
Olivia, which have a decorative buckle (why bother with a fake buckle that doesn't adjust anything?) and no Polartec lining.
