Great boots. i am glad i got a size larger, because in my old age i am having problems with my feet, they enjoy having a little extra room to wiggle around in, but at the same time, i can lace them tight enough to give my ankles plenty of support. i made the mistake of not putting the felt soles on when i was wading with the rubber ones on rocks that were covered with rock snot, they were very slippery, since changing to the felt ones i have better traction. i am thinking of buying the rubber soles with the cleats. these shoes beat everything i have worn in the past.
