These are fantastic boots. True to size, I normally wear 8-8.5, got an 8 and they fit perfectly. So very comfortable. I love them despite the fact that they are slightly difficult to take off (think undoing the laces all the way down then hard pull). I'm hoping it gets easier as I wear them more, it's only been a few days. The heel feels non-existent. Seriously the best boots I've ever had.
My only complaint is the horrible laces that came with them. Too short and one already frayed after only 4 days.
