I ordered a size 9 and I'm a size 8, which seems to be just the right amount of difference to accommodate a thick pair of wool socks. I'm very glad I did not order two sizes larger as one review suggested you might need to do. With the thick socks, a pair of long johns, and tapered blue jeans tucked in the boot, the side zip was snug but not uncomfortable at all. After 10 hours of wear today, I can say I'm quite pleased with the purchase.

Beautiful boot, but runs a full size smaller than its true size (ie, if you wear a 9, it fits like an 8). So my daughter who wears a 9, needed a 10, but wanted to wear wool socks for extra warmth and ended up with an 11 and they do not look big at all. They are really pretty boots and Zappos rocks! Obviously it took a little bit to figure out the sizing and with all of their amazing customer service, free shipping and the final pair literally arrived at our door 12 hours after we placed the order and we couldn't be more pleased!

I LOVE THESE BOOTS. I have some foot issues (recently had ankle surgery in Sept to repair some tendons, and I have a benign tumor in the arch of my very flat feet), and because of the recent surgery I was looking for some boots that were functional, stylish, and above all, comfortable/supportive. I'm typically a 7 but usually like to order up in boots and sneakers, so I ordered an 8 in these and although slightly loose, they overall fit really well and I don't mind the extra space in case I'm wearing thicker jeans or socks. I did take 1 star off for "style" simply because I prefer brown-colored boots...and Tundra, if you read these, please make this boot in a coffee/cognac brown color!! That said, I know I will still make plenty of use with the black ones and they appear dressy enough for work, parties, etc. For reference, I'm 29, 5'2", 140lbs, and the boots come up about 5 inches below my knees. I have not yet experienced wearing them in rain or snow but feel confident based on the material that they will hold up well.

Ordering day: Was a little apprehensive about them due to mixed reviews. Bought anyway. Day 1: Dressed up specifically just to wear the boots. Dressing up wasn't needed, but it was fun since I got new boots! They felt good. A little snug across the top of my foot, possibly b/c they were new and needed broken in. Warm! Comfortable! Nice arch support. Day 2: Wore them under jeans. HOT! I m the type of person who if my feet are hot, I m burning up, if they re chilly I m freezing. I was sweating hot all day inside one store in particular, but I didn't need my coat when I was outside. Also went to 3 different grocery stores shopping and walked for hours. My feet only started hurting within the last hour of wearing the boots. Any other shoes I would have been dying and given up before finishing shopping. As I wore them they stretched and began to fit as that size usually does, a little big but not too big. Great! Day 3: Swore off shoes today. Not going anywhere, not doing anything. After hours of shopping, I deserve it. Conclusion: These shoes are great. Warm, these would definitely do great in low, LOW temperatures. It was 40 degrees on day 2 and I was very warm (while in the store too warm). Comfortable, they say they re for wide calves which is basically true, kind of snug but not too bad. A little snug all around at first but then, as they re worn, they stretch to normal size. These look great either on top of a pair of leggings (or skinny jeans if you can pull it off) or under jeans. The fur on top of the legs adds warmth. Easy to zip zipper, the inside flap makes it so you don t feel the zipper on your calf. I was afraid they d look chunky and make my big feet look even bigger, but they actually made my feet look slimmer! They almost had a rain boot look when I first took them out of the box, but they look MUCH better on! Definitely worth the price (which is pretty good too!).

Very comfortable and fit well! The only thing I would say is that if it is a rainy or particularly melt-y day, if you step in water it will go right through the zipper. So they really are meant exclusively for snow.

I just received my Tundra Boots Ruth. They are very pretty, as pictured, and the fit is true to size. I wear between a 6-7 and I ordered a 7. They have a bit of extra room...but I think that will work out well if I choose to wear a sock. Very nicely made with a fleece lining, and a bargain for the price. I would have liked to have seen a bit more traction element on the bottom of the boot but they are probably fine. Ordering through Zappos was a pleasure. Customer service was warm and friendly and knowledgeable. I was very particular about the boots being absolutely waterproof and good for snow and rain...and Tiffany was very thorough in checking this out for me. I received my boots very quickly and in short, am delighted with them. You can be sure I will order from Zappos again and again.

This boot is true to size. I have a wide calf, 16.5" and this boot fits great. I could even tuck my slim jeans in them. They have more of a dressy, slim lined look as opposed to the Baffins I also ordered. Haven't tried them in the snow yet so can't say how durable or waterproof they are.

I am so impressed with these boots. They were a total impulse buy and I am so glad because now I wear them all the time. For the price point, they are incredibly well made - surprisingly comfortable, keep your feet and legs warm, but not overheated where you sweat, resist water (I stepped ankle deep in a puddle and felt nothing and I wore the boots all day) and stay clean (I have walked through brown snow and salt and they do not show anything!). I highly recommend giving these boots a try!

I was looking for good boots to keep my feet warm and dry. I live in Minnesota and we have snow, slush and rain about five months of the year, so a quality pair of boots and a good price was very important. I found both with my Tundra boots. I have gotten lots of compliments on these. I love them. I bought them a half size bigger to compensate for wearing two pair of socks during the winter, but found that if I wear two pair of socks plus these boots and I am inside for any length of time, they're almost too warm! Long story short, if you need a good, comfy pair of boots at a fair price, these are the ones you should go with.

If you have the right size feet for these boots you will love them. They look stylish, are tall enough to keep the snow out when walking with high drifts, and seem warm. I normally wear a size 8½ so I first went with a size 9 based on some of the reviews. They were way too large. I would have to wear super thick wool socks all the time to keep my heel from sliding up and there is not always a need for that. I then ordered a size 8 thinking that would fit perfectly but my toes are pushing at the top. So, there is nothing wrong with these boots, guess I just did not have have the right size feet for them.

I ordered a size up (I usually wear an 8 and ordered a 9) based on previous reviews and REGRET it. I strongly suggest ordering true to size. I tried them on with thick socks and jeans underneath and they are still a bit too big. But they are great shoes, warm and fashionable.

These provide style, comfort, and warmth. What could be better? These boots do not have a clunky look to them. They are quite attractive. I did take the advice of another reviewer and expected the 8 I ordered to be too short. Generally take a 7½ or 8 and in boots, usually the size 8. They were perfect. All six boots I ordered this season fit perfectly. What a surprise for hard to fit me. I was shopping for one and kept two pairs. This one and another from Khombu called Lily Zip. I am going to review that one next.

Brands I'd also recommend: Mountrek, Columbia, Khombu

I LOVE these boots! They are the most comfortable shoes I own and I didn't even have to break these in. They are great in the rain and snow. Strong material and sturdy make. These boots are a great deal for the price. Really good quality.

I am a 6.5 to 7 in shoes. I bought a 7. They were too big. The size 6 fits perfectly with a med weight wool sock. Based on other reviews looks like there is some inconsistency in shoe sizes. All that said, nice looking boot, and very comfortable and good price.

I love these boots so far. They're simple, warm and comfortable to wear, even all day. The suede-like material looks great. I haven't yet had a chance to yet them I'm rain or snow. I hope the weather-proof claims hold true.

I bought these boots for my teenage daughter; she has been wearing them all day at home since we received them, they feel very warm and are comfortable. She usually wears sneakers, size 7 1/2, so I ordered size 8, but received size 9! Well, the boots fit her, maybe slightly too big with regular size socks, but definitely the right size with thicker winter socks. She also has plenty of room to stuff her jeans in them. Overall very satisfied with this purchase.

These shoes are really great. I haven't worn them in the snow yet, but I have worn them on cold and rainy days and they are comfy and stay dry. They are kind of like more stylish Uggs. I really like them!

These are great in the New England snow and very cute. Comfortable except the heel can be painful if I don't wear thick enough socks.

The boots run small, so I had to order them two sizes larger. I have narrow feet, so the medium width is not a problem. They feel fine, but I wish that they had an arch support. Other than those two things, I am very happy with them. I really like the way they look.

Seems to run a bit large and not quite as nice looking as a normal boot but looks like a great one for cold wet weather. Just not what I was going for in the end.

Most stylish warm winter boots I could find under $100. Really liked the price. Seem well made but not sure how many seasons they will last. I have narrow calves and they're a bit big but would look fine with jeans!
