I love these boots. I bought them so I'd have a more casual winter boot that I wouldn't have to take another pair of shoes to work to change into. I wouldn't wear these on a blistery winter day though. They fit great. The upper part around my ankle is a little looser than what I'm used to in a boot but other than that, perfect!!
Went with the recommended half size up which worked for my right foot but like another reviewer the toes of my left foot uncomfortably hit the front of the boot. Since I started at a 10 I had to go up to an 11. It is a little loose but worked ok for the left but is too big for the right. The second pair was on sale so I decided to keep the 11 left and 10 right boots and donate the other odd size pair.
