Finallly the perfect boot for horsewomen. I'm 81/2 so I ordered 9 they fit perfectly, I do have slender legs so I had plenty of room left over at the calf. Spurs fit securly and stay snug if you ride a horse that needs them. Waterproof below the suede, so you can just rinse them off. If your horse loses a shoe don't worry about walking because you could walk for miles without a blister. Must have been designed by a horsewoman. Since I am aging these are great for my arthritis and plantar fasciitis. The only drawback I can think of is they would probalby be hot in hot weather. I would suggest making a pair with holes like the clog and a shorter shaft for summer. Feel great inside luxurious to the feet. Look great in and out. Love these boots!
