This is such a nice boot and seems like it's made well with great quality. I love the heel height and look of the toe. HOWEVER, I normally wear a 8.5 M shoe and in boots I tend to wear an 8 M. I ordered and 8, sent it back thinking it was too small and tight. I reordered an 8.5 and it felt even tighter. I checked both sizes to be sure they were the correct size sent and they were the correct size. If I hadn't already found something else, I might have tried the 9, but I've NEVER worn a 9 size shoe or boot. My feet are narrow so I typically order a regular medium width so I can wear thicker socks. I would consider a WIDE in this boot.
