I usually wear a size 8.5 in Brooks or Keen, so I ordered these Bogs in a size 8.5. To be fair, I have not worn Bogs before, so I wasn't sure how they ran size-wise. They fit larger than expected -- they felt a 1/2 to a full size too big. However, my son, who wears a size 9 in New Balance, tried them on and loved them, so now he has a new pair of boots. While I might not normally pay so much for a pair of boots, I don't regret picking these up on clearance. It's nice to be able to shop local and not break the bank. They seem like a good quality boot, and if they are indeed waterproof, even better. I might treat them with some water repellent spray (also from Lamey Wellehan).
