|99% of the time I’m a size 9. I read through the reviews and wasn’t sure if I should size up or not. The only shoes I ever did that for was my Nike free run 5 where I ended up getting a size 10. So being a prime member, love the free returns, I bought 9 & 9.5.|
I’ll be going with the 9.5. I feel the slightest amount of pressure, and my big toe against the top of the boot in the size 9. I think that extra bit of room will make it better for the week-long camping we’ll be doing in Iceland. And Yes the shoe is very stylish in person!! I will update my other review once my trip is taken (may 2017) to update on the performance.
Updated after the trip:: Amazing pair of boots. No time needed to break in. However, sometimes it does rub against one of my ankles…definitely wear high socks. Overall still very happy with the quality, style, and price, especially as I am only a moderate hiker. I’d purchase again.
