I love the little side details on these boots and so far I've found them very comfortable and warm. I even bought a second pair to have as a backup when the first ones wear out because they were such a great price. If you're looking for a nice, well-made boot without breaking the bank, I highly recommend these shoes.
For reference, I wear a 7.5 in most athletic shoes and ended up getting these in a 7. They fit comfortably with socks without being too tight or too loose.
