To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These boots don't have magnificent treads or anything (they're a dress boot and not a full winter boot). The sole on them is really great though. So many of these dressy mid-weather boots have hard bottoms that slip while walking on dry pavement sidewalks. I'm a fast walker so that can get pretty dangerous at times. These boots though have a nice rubbery sole - not slippery at all. They also have nice slim lines for a flat dress boot. I'm very happy with them.
I wear a 7.5 but I buy size 8 in boots to allow for thicker socks or insoles. At size 8 these still fit slim but not too snug.
