LOVE These Boots!
I read several reviews on these boots before I purchased them. I took the advice of other buyers and went up one size (which is why I give it 4 out of 5 stars), I'm glad I did because they fit perfectly! I don't wear socks with them as they are slip on boots and it's a little difficult to put them on because of the area where the croc and upper meet, once I got over that part they were on and I was off to an outdoor festival.
I usually don't recommend wearing brand new shoes for the first time knowing you are going to be on your feet for hours, but these boots were very comfortable!
For the fashionistas: these are casual-looking boots. If you want to wear these with a dress, they will dress it down (but that can be a good thing). Think of "Western" boots. They are great to tuck jeans into though...I know these will be "go-to" boots this winter.
Oh, and I have larger calves and because they fall mid-calve, they fit a little loose! Enough to stick my jeans into them. =D
