They are very comfortable. At the beginning, it felt strange to lace up on the size. I have thick calves and not so straight legs, but these boots are flattering and mask the true shape. Since we've had only one sub zero temp day and absolutely no snow this season, I don't know how they would do in a severe weather condition. When I walked about a mile on the frigid day, they kept my feet toasty and supported them very well.

These boots are definitely smaller than marked. I am a true 9 and they felt at least half a size too small with the liner. No point using them without the liner! Also note that the circumference around the top is a wide 18". This was far too much space for someone with slim calves and I laced them as tight as they would go. The padding is exceptional, and I am sure that they would do a capital job at keeping one's feet warm. However, they were unwearable given the sizing issues. I returned them and ended up with similar but less heavy boots from Kamik.

These boots performed terrifically during a trip to Banff in Canada this winter. My feet stayed warm and dry during long walks in deep snow. The boots were comfortable enough to wear all day. The traction on the bottom is good enough for walking around town but I did needed to add grippers to the bottom for ice hiking. I usually wear a size 8 in regular shoes but I ordered the 9 which I think I needed because I was wearing such thick wool socks but if you wanted to wear these with just your regular socks you could probably get your regular size. They were very easy to get on and off.

Was very worried about fit of this boot, as so many reviews said to order up. That size was not available, so I ordered my standard shoe size. Initially, the boot did feel too small. But after a day of wear, the liners settled out and the fit was great! I wore thin socks, and they kept my feet toasty warm in 20 degree weather. Highly recommend!

Love Zappos! And love these boots. They arrived just in time for the latest winter storm. I am typically an 8 1/2 but went with a 9 based on reviews. With regular socks they were comfortable, but roomy. If I choose to wear thicker socks, they will still be fine. If you have larger calves, these are the boots for you! And the arch support is great.

These boots run small. I am a standard size 8 in most shoe brands and some times a 7 1/2. I ordered an 8 and they were squishing my toes.

Finally, a warm pair of boots! I live in Vermont and spend time outside and in a cold hockey rink. My feet have never gotten cold in these. And, they are cushy comfy.

These boots are great! It's really hard to find good snow boots that look decent and fashionable at a reasonable price. They're comfortable, warm, and very waterproof - even in the craziest of weather. Other reviews have said they don't fit right - I'm a 7 and they fit me well. They are tight at first, but the liners are very thick and expand to your feet within the first day of wearing them, so don't be discouraged if they feel tight at first. You can make sure you got the right size by trying on the liners by themselves, if those fit, you got the right size.

This is a great boot for the snow and cold and stylin', too! If I wear thick socks, the liner tends to come out with my foot, but otherwise I love the boot. It gets too hot for inside and warmer days. Keeps my feet dry. I get lots of comments.

This boot is increbily comfortable and warm. It's definitely made for winter's worse. Initially thought it looked bulky and difficult to drive in but I was pleasantly surprised that the opposite was true. I've even worn them shopping! An excellent value for the money.

Great boots. They are super stylish and cozy. I wore them tubing and they kept my feet warm and dry the whole time. Since they lace up the side I could see where if you have really skinny calves you may not be able to get them tight enough around your leg. I have average calves and they fit just right. I would definitely buy Baffin again. Excited to finally have boots that look great and keep my feet happy.

Warm boot in cute package. Also tried Baffin Chloe, but that was more bulky and not as cute. This kept my toes warm in deep snow. A boot this warm has to be bulky and heavy, but this one is cuter than most. I wear a 9 and bought this in a 9; any shorter and I would have had to size up.

Trying these on in July was torture, so I know they will be awesome in our cold and snowy winter months.(yes it snows in AZ, quite generously at 7,000 feet)I ordered a size larger, 8 based on other users' suggestions, but preferred the snugger fit of the 7.

These boots felt stiff and confining. I wouldn't want to walk far in them... They are not tight but have little flexibility.They lack the style I was hoping for also. A disappointment...

I disagree with the reviewer who said to order these a size bigger. I tried that, but the next size up was much too large. The key is that you have to put the boots on the way it tells you on the little card that comes with them - remove the liner, but that on your foot, and then put your foot with the liner on it into the boot. If you do that, you should have no problem, whereas when I tried to just put the boot on the normal way, it was a struggle even with the boot that was a size larger. I ended up getting my normal size and I'm happy with them. One reviewer mentioned feeling unsteady walking in these boots because of the height and shape of the sole. I didn't have too much a problem most of the time, except they don't really bend at the ankle. But going up and down stairs I had to be pretty careful and hold on. These aren't ultra-high-style, but considering they're first and foremost warm and practical, I think the style is pretty decent.

I wear an 8.5 and ordered a 9. These are pull on boots. Since the laces are just decorative, it was really hard to get my foot in with the liner. I have trouble getting cowboy boots on though - so take it with a grain of salt. These seemed like they'd be great in really cold areas, but I don't need the power that these lined boots give.

from high desert (cold part) of Oregon

I respect the Baffin brand and quality, so ordered this boot as a substantial winter boot. It seemed well-made. I was looking for something quite warm but not as heavy as the old Sorel 1964s that I had years ago. My husband has a pair of Baffins that he raves about. His feet are very wide. I definitely go for function and quality over style. I wear 7 1/2 and sometimes 8 in shoes and like a lot of room in the toe box. I ordered an 8 in these, but they were too short (toes touching the end) and too narrow. I exchanged for a 9, and the length was okay, but still too narrow. I had on a mid-weight sock, and wore the boots in the house for about an hour each time. I know that Baffin's liners are meant to be snug and form to the foot over time. What's interesting about the narrowness in these boots, and in their Snowgoose style that I tried on at a store, is that the narrowness of this Baffin toe style (I see it on several of their boots: a hard plastic toe area instead of rubber over the whole front of the boot), is that it feels wide enough in the ball of the foot, but too narrow in the toes. As if my toes were piled on top of each other. The arch area was also uncomfortable: narrow and rubbing toward the front of my arch. The whole boot felt like it was narrow almost to the point of tipsy. Another note: this is a boot for moderate cold, not serious cold and not for being outdoors for hours at a time in the cold. However, if you have a narrow foot and want a cute functional boot for fairly cold weather, this would be a good choice. I've exchanged this boot for a boot that folks report runs wider and has a colder temp rating, and will rate them when I get to use them!

Tried these boots because all the reviews. The boot itself fit my foot, but it seems like the inner lining runs small. I unfortunately had to send them back.

I ordered these boots because I am needing a comfortable and warm snow boot for winters at school in New Hampshire. I am usually a size 10 and sometimes fit into a 9.5. I actually like the boot accept it was too short and narrow around the ball of my foot. I could feel this tightness as soon as I put it on and knew I needed to return them for something else. A little disappointed, but hopefully I'll find a better fit in a different style/brand.

Caveat: I returned these. Based on the reviews posted here, I ordered a full size up (I'm an 8, and ordered a 9). I probably could have lived with the roomy size, but they are really ugly. The photos don't convey how high the foot is. My husband took one look at these and said I looked like Frankenstein, and indeed I did. The height from the floor to the top of the arch is easily 6 inches. They would probably be great for subzero weather. But if it's that cold out, I'm not sure you need all the style elements.

Disappointed. I am usually a perfect size 7 and am able to ignore everyone's comments about sizing, but these 7s were way too short/small. I wasn't expecting that. What I was halfway expecting/afraid of was that the calf would be too wide, as most boots are on me, and it was. There was no way to tighten it. Plus, the boots are kind of short -- only go up to the lower calf. If you are really trekking through snow, you need something that comes to the upper calf, or below the knee, or else snow is going right down inside! They were also chunkier/less stylish than I was expecting. So overall, boo.

Brands I'd also recommend: I prefer my plain-jane Sorrell boots

Why make a boot in large wide sizes when the liner inside would barely fit a child? Ridiculous! I tried taking the liner out but then there is no comfort or warmth in these boots and my feet flop around inside like I'm wearing buckets. I just received them 5 minutes ago and am sweating from the struggle of trying to put them on. Seriously the liner inside is barely a size 6 and my boots are a size 11. Why wouldn't the liner be as big as the boot? I will be returning these and continuing my search for boots that fit properly. VERY disappointed.

This was my second attempt at getting a pair of Baffin boots to fit. I really wanted to love them. I am a true size 8, and don't normally have to go up or down in size at all. Well, I tried the size 8 in the Baffin Chloe boot and my toes were smashed into the front of the boot, even when sitting down, but crushed into the front of the boot upon standing. They were *way* too small. So, I ordered a size 9 in this style (size 9 was sold out in the Chloe style), and seriously, they didn't feel *any* longer (maybe 1/8 of an inch?) but did feel looser in the heel and slid up and down while still smashing my toes into the front of the boot (whether standing or sitting). I think this boot just doesn't fit my foot at all. I thought about trying a size 10, but with how loose the heel felt in a size 9, I knew it wouldn't work. I'm going to try a different brand, sorry Baffin! You do make a cute boot!

These are really cute and easy to slip on which is a must for me with snow boots. They appear to be good quality. Unfortunately they are a little short in the toe so I have to return them. I pretty much wear a 7, I ordered 7 and they are a little short. If I were wearing thick socks they would be uncomfortable.
