These boots are super cute and comfortable. Normally I wear a 10 sometimes a 10.5 in shoes found at Walmart, but knowing I will be wearing thick socks (wool) with these boots, I went up to an 11. I've also started wearing a certain sandal brand and I fit only an 11 in their shoes/sandals.
These hiker-style boots fit perfect! I wouldn't use these for actual hiking, but they make for a cute fall/winter hiking-style boot. (We hike and go backpacking, so I have some experience with hiking and good footwear for hiking.) I can just see me in these boots sitting around a campfire sipping hot chocolate at a campground, though! (Well, once Covid-19 is under control. We backpack because it's fun and to avoid crowds at campgrounds...lol)
*toe looks narrow, but doesn't fit narrow
*nice raised heel
*soft tongue material
*strong laces loops
*easy and quick to lace and tie
*The grip could be stronger. The boots are a tad slippery on dry smooth surfaces. I imagine they are more slippery on wet smooth surfaces. Safety is important, so I took off one star for this.
Overall, I recommend these boots, but I recommend going a size up from your normal Walmart footwear size.
