Love the boots! I was worried they wouldn't fit based on some reviews I had read prior to ordering. However, I am an 8-8.5 and these size 8 fit perfectly with even a little room in the toe area. The calf area is a snug fit for me but that's because I have danced for many years and have a larger calf to fit over. I'm 5'7" and 160# so the fit worked for my legs with leggings on. The upper feels soft and supple, easy to move in, have a good feel in the foot.
