Based on reviews and the website, I ordered down a size. (Depending on the shoe, I'm sometimes an 8W and sometimes 8.5W US.) My feet came right up to the end and my toes were squished. So, I ordered a size up. These are so big that I have to wear extra thick socks so they don't slide off. The buckles on the also sides don't stay put if you try to tighten them, which is almost the most disappointing part. I may yet still order the short boots - I understand they run a bit smaller, so hopefully the size 9 won't be as big as what I ended up with in the tall boots. It's so very difficult to find wide width rain boots, I'm willing to give these a third try. Here's hoping.
Rarely does it snow in Texas but it did early January and I discovered I needed a rain boot and purchased these. Well, it does rain and I wore these in goopy, slippery mud. They kept my feet dry and warm. When done, I just sprayed them off with water and they look brand new again. They fit as listed. I bought the 18" to make sure that my pants would fit inside and still have plenty of room. If we get a snow next year, I am ready. In the meantime, I'll not have to worry about wet feet again.
Soft, cozy, and worth every penny
Love my boots!
They are comfortable and soft they fit my calf and my foot perfectly I love these rain boots I could not be happier.
