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.

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.

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.

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.

Great rain boots! They are super light weight. There is not much too them which is excellent because you can customize the inside for your comfort ie. orthotics, insoles, wool liner, etc. I wouldn't wear them in the snow as they will likely absorb the cold not keep your feet warm at all, even if you wear wool socks. but rain like in Vancouver BC where they were made, they are perfect for throwing on and heading out.

Conceptually, it sounds like a great idea for a shoe: lightweight, waterproof and stylish. However, in reality this boot suffers a few key flaws. The first is the sizing, which I've found to be way big. It's difficult to get a snug fit also because the boot shaft is too large as well. I ended up not lacing them up all the way and wrapping the excess lace around the shaft to get a secure fit. The other biggie is breathability, or specifically the lack of it. Expect clammy, sweaty feet after about an hour of wearing these. Also, the footbed can get slippery as a result of the material used, which is why they put little nubs on the bottom. Sweaty feet might not be that big of an issue with some good wicking socks, but the lack of insulation compounds the problem in sub-freezing temperatures. Imagine walking around with cold, wet feet all day long and you'll get the idea. Wool socks are a must. This shoe is great for: - wearing around town if your city goes crazy with the salt when it snows, - spring/summer rain storms, -intense mud/bog-like conditions. This shoe is not good for: - any type of physical endeavor, - situations where you need warmth, - hiking.

Purchased these shoes after seeing my husband's. These shoes are ULTRA light that it's hard to believe their even boots.(think Crocs but way more fashionable.) I wore them in Chicago when it snowed (with wool socks of course.) I'm normally size 5.5 (woman), and the size 3 (men)/size 5 (woman) fit perfectly. The shoes are not very breathable...so if you tend to get sweaty feet, then these aren't for you.

Love my Jimmy's! They compliment a lot of outfits so you can wear your rain boots and still look fashionable. Can be worn tied up and tight to the ankle (great for under pant legs) or loose and untied (great look for over skinny jeans). I receive compliments nearly every time I wear them from both women and men. Notable: Animal free (yay! vegan shoes), waterproof (yay! dry feet), washable and odor-resistant (yay! no smelly feet), microfleece (yay! no cold feet), shock absorbent (yay! comfy), & lightweight (yay! no trudging around in heavy, awkward rubber rain boots).

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.

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.

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 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.
