Rated 5 out of 5Â by RachDC size up if on the cusp
I'm a 8 most of the time but 8.5 now and then - these were a solid 8.5. They are a challenge to get on b/c the ankle area doesn't give much, so I'd say for sure if you have wide feet - they are probably not going to work for you even if you do size up - but if you've got narrow to non-wide then they are likely to work for ya.
I thought they were really comfortable, a tad stiff (if you've ever tried Dansko's on - the sole kind of reminds me of those), but for me I like the firm sole b/c it's better support and once they break in but lets you know they arenâ€™t going to fall apart - seems like a we made shoe.
Very happy w/this purchase and the price is awesome to boot for a pair of booties :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KelsoM Love these!
Not quite sure why these aren't getting the best reviews, I think these are perfect! I am a solid size 7 and I never ever have to size up if anything I have to size down to a 6.5 for shoes sometimes, but I followed the instructions and reviews and got a 7.5. Kind of wish I didn't, they are a little loose, but not too much that I will return them, I just wish I knew how the 7 fit (my anthro doesn't sell shoes so I have to order online). As for comfort, I think they are really comfortable, I haven't worn them a full day yet but when I have they have been great! They are not too tall either, perfect height!
Also, I have pretty wide feet and I had no troubles getting my foot in this.

I originally ordered these in a 61/2. They were extremely tiight and I struggled to get my feet in.
(My right foot is a 6 1/2 and my left foot measures a 7)
The size 7 arrives and it's still tight on both feet. Additionally, I found that the sole of my foot, while wearing it, had no cushin, but rather a stif, hard surface to stand on with no cushin whatsoever. They make High quality shoes that feel like you are walking on a wood board?.....that's what these felt like, with an awkward bump/ elevation that felt like the half boot wanted to remind me where my toes end and my foot continues.
