Shoes were exactly what I was looking for in the price range. The side zipper isn't all that great as you still have to unlace the boot some to get foot into it. Although these were advertised as extra wide, they felt more like a D width boot. They were returned for a refund as no extra extra wide were available. Some people are cursed with very wide feet and on line ordering is their only recourse, which sometimes entails numerous returns to get the size right. Stores seem to only stock D and E widths, very rarely offering EEEE widths. The quality of these boots seemed ok but never really wore them for a true rating.
