I bought these boots for my husband for a present. I ordered the size he normally wears in boots and they fit him perfectly. The color is great...even better in person than on the web. The brown leather actually is a bit lighter than the picture shows, which I like. Hubby says they are comfortable and really likes them a lot, and he is very picky about boots (he had been shopping for a brown pair for three years...I finally just bought him a pair since he wouldn't make up his mind!). They are a high quality Ariat boot. Would recommend to anyone!
