I searched high and low for a comfortable, affordable and stylish pair of combat boots, and these more than fit the bill, they are perfect! They are also very comfortable and flexible (they mold to the shape of your legs and feet). I wear size 5 shoes and got the 5.5, and they felt more than a 1/2 size too big, but with insoles and thick socks, it wears perfectly. They are also very adorable and stylish and don't look too clunky or clown-like (some combat boots can be a bit overwhelming but not these). I can wear them with just about anything in my closet: floral maxi dresses, skirts, jeans, shorts etc. And I can walk around for hours and not feel my feet throb. Even if these don't last too long, I would not hesitate to buy them again, especially at this price point, comfort and style.
