How do you choose something so important without checking them out in a store? I started with looking for the basics, mid-height, waterproof, light, with good reviews. I studied various backpacking gear review websites and watched a few video reviews. This helped me narrow down my choices, and finally I decided to give these boots a try. My normal boot size is 10 US or 42 Euro. The reviews say these run a 1/2 size small. I took a chance and ordered an 11. The tag in the boot says size 11 US, 42 Euro. I put them on as soon as they arrived, and knew right away that these are keepers! They have a nice narrow heel with no slipping and the lacing pattern lets me lock down the instep without being tight. The insole feels soft and supportive underfoot, like a dream. My feet are dry all day, every day. Sure-footed on a variety of surfaces, damp or dry. Bliss!
