These run large. I bought a 10 and my 10.5 sneaker insoles fit into them perfectly. I wear them with either a sneaker insole+athletic socks or heavy cushioned hiking socks (without insoles). Without either of these, they would be way too loose.

I love these boots for the practicality. They are simple and easy to clean. Luckily this winter hasn't been bad and I haven't tried em out in the snow but i would recommend wool socks or extra layering for warmth. But they are great in the rain. I am a guy and haven't seen anyone else wear em but I get a lot of compliments for them.

Do not let the material and its construction discourage you! This is a great boot, it's different and having one in your closet won't hurt you at all. The rubber in the forefoot that wraps around the side keeps your feet nice and warm, it traps heat; I would say though that ventilation is therefore not that great. Like someone said before, this is like flip-flop for winter. The weight is also a plus, lightest thing on your feet.

When I pulled these boots out of the box I said "where are the boot liners?" There seemed to be nothing to these boots. The footbed was just simple and looked like a flipflop footbed. However, when I put them on and laced them up, they felt amazing! They are surprisingly warm and can accommodate a thick sock. Oh, and they are light! Definitely the lightest pair of footwear I have owned and that includes many pairs of sandals. I tell people they are my winter flip flops. Very happy with these.

I usually wear an 8.5 and got an 8. They are a bit loose but that's usually how boots are to accommodate thick socks. I would highly recommend buying a pair to wear with these boots as they lack a liner. I've been wearing them in MN and wore gym socks. I found a sore on the bottom of one of my toes from frost bite. Wear thick socks for freezing temps. I'm still really glad I got these. They are profoundly lighter than Sorels yet still keep snow and slush out just as well. They look great and I've gotten lots of compliments. One issue I had was with the heel seem of my right boot. It chaffed a little the first few days I wore them but has now stopped. Awesome boots, just remember they aren't winter ready.

Love this shoe and in in sole is so comfy. Because there is no half sizes I got the size 11 also to allow for thermal socks, but they still feel a little too big, Maybe I should have gotten a 10.

I love these boots. I bought them when I lived in Chicago for the crazy winter. They insulate and hold out water like crazy, have good grip on the ground so you don't slip, and are really awesome-looking. It helps to wear thick socks with them though, because the upper section is quite large (even for my big ankles). Whenever I didn't wear thick socks with them, I'd tighten the shoestrings as tight as they'd go and they were still not completely snug.

OMG like walking on air! These must weigh ounces a piece. Its like owning a Croc with a nylon upper. The tongue of the shoe is sewn to the sides so water doesn't leak through. I have large calves and large ankles and these fit but are snug (size 9 mens/11 womens) However I want more colors please bring them back.

I ordered these shoes and was surprised at how cute they were for rain boots - unfortunately they were way too big for my sister who wear's a size 6 shoe and too small for me - I usually wear 6.5-7. I had to return them and I don't think there's a chance the women's 7 will fit since reviews say they run large.

Before I received them I was very excited because this was the only company that I found that offered black duck boots for men. Two weeks after wearing them though my excitement dropped a bit. They're very light which I kind of like but upper part is made of canvas which is durable yet flexible (the problem) and the leather strip in the back bends with your leg. Which has led my boot to have a permanent bend and permanently buckle out mid way up the boot. It's not the end of the world because it's always up under my pants but it just bugs me knowing I paid so much for them and they did that in 2 weeks. Other than that issue I like them.

When they arrived I was really disappointed. I have been looking for all black duck boots for awhile and finally found them. There was a snow storm coming and I got them just in time however, I wasn't going to be able to wear them. They are made out of pretty much nothing...no lining and weird rubber insole. The only perk is that they are light and the weight would be good for walking through large amounts of snow however your feet would freeze. Not happy that I have to return them because I do like the way they look but they are really not functional.

These are the poser of duck boots. And for the price, you are totally getting ripped off. If you want quality duck boots, buy from L.L. Bean, seriously. First off, yes, it is super light! I fell like I am walking in my socks. For a Fall/Winter boot, it provides nothing for warmth. The nylon rip stop fabric that covers your ankle is like wrapping an umbrella around you to keep you warm. It sucks for hiking in the outdoors. And it sucks even more fort he snow. The only thing this Native duck boot is good for is aesthetic and street style.

I typically wear a 9 or 9.5 wide. I ordered this boot in a 9 medium. It felt both too long and too wide. No matter how I laced this boot it slid up and down when I walked. Also, there is a ridge where the rubber bottom meets the nylon upper. This felt very uncomfortable. There is nothing positive I can say about this boot.

So I got my chance to wear them out yesterday during a rainstorm and I couldn't be more disappointed. First I slid everywhere. second the hard rubber that meets the nylon on the back of my ankle cuts into me. Third they are way narrower than marked. My regret is wearing them as I don't think I'll get my money back. Who wants a shoe with no traction.
