I think this is a great all-purpose winter boot that manages to combine style with function. I ordered my normal size, a 7.5, and the boots
fits great. I have room to wiggle my toes which is important for long days of walking. I am anxious to see how these boots
perform in rain and snow. I have been wearing them for two weeks now but we have had minimal rain. I'm hoping they truly are weather resistant. The footbed is very comfortable and provides some arch support
. I have worn these for an entire day with a good amount of walking and my feet felt great. A note about the narrow ankle area: They can be a little difficult to get on with the narrow ankle area. I generally wear skinny jeans
tucked into these boots
. Sometimes I will roll/cuff my skinny jeans
once and then put them on so that any extra bulk from the jeans
is above the narrow ankle area. Once on, they are completely comfortable around my ankle. I wouldn't let the ankle area discourage you from purchasing these.
