These are great boots and Overstock had them at a great price. However, be sure to double check sizing, as this product uses Australian shoe sizing. That would be fine, since we already owned a pair of these boots and are familiar with their sizing, except Overstock was not clear on which system they were using. They listed the size as 8.5 (9.5) which makes it sounds like your are getting a 8.5 Australian, 9.5 American--YOU'RE NOT--you're getting an Australian 7.5, which is an 8.5 American. Confused yet? Why list the 9.5 sizing if you're getting a 7.5 Aussie? Anyway, the company who ships these was willing to accept a return (after making it sound like it was my mistake), but we kept the boots and gave them to my nephew who can use them for his job.
My husband has always wanted a cowboy boot, but has never like the big boot top of them (he has skinny legs, lol). He bought his regular size 12.....way too big... we went to a boot shop and he was fitted, and turns out, boots of this nature must be very snug around the ankle and foot, and then will gradually shape to your individual foot.... he ended up with a size 9.5!!!!! These are great boots if you get the proper size!
Grading as per heading, 1-10 : Design : 9.5 Color : 9.5 Leather : 9.5 Hardwear : 9.0 Heel : 4.5 Size : 5.5 Quality 9.0 Closing : Boot is great, Sizing could be in the ee, eee, dd, ddd. Heel is Too nerrow NOT GOOD IN THE CONSTRUCTION FEILD
These boots were a gift and I am so excited about them! They definitely run large (I usually wear a 9.5 or 10 in USA W, so I went with a 9 USA W - 6 AUS M). I can tell I need to break them in a bit, but they are wonderful and should be warm and sturdy for Midwest winters, hiking and just walking around every day. Also, Overstock delivered the boots in only 2 days, even though they estimated 3-8 business days. Very pleased!!
