hese boots just arrived at lightening speed thanks to Zappos. After reading all the helpful customer reviews, I ordered the black in 9.5 (my regular shoe size) and the brown in 9. What people say here is true--the toe box is at least a half size long. That said, though, the regular (B) is narrow, perfect for my very narrow foot. The 9 fits like a glove, with a medium weight sock, but I did have to shoe horn my feet in due to the high instep. I expect that it will soon get much easier, as the leather, which is gorgeous, almost
immediately starts conforming to your foot. The black was not available in 9; I'm on the fence and may keep
it in 9.5, to wear with two pairs of socks then winter hits full force. The foot ankle portion of the boot is narrow and a close fit; the calf was big on me (13" calves); but the boot is such high quality that I'll live with it. The boot has a "biker" look but is streamlined and still feminine looking. Fantastic arch support, wonderful lug-soles, I can tell that I will walk my dogs in these all winter in the snow! Finally, after buying many pairs of boots from Zappos and sending back some, I can say that you do get what you pay for. These boots are a great price for such comfort and quality.
