They run true to size. I'm usually a 9 (wide) and I sized up to a 9.5 because I like a little more room for hiking boots, to accommodate thicker socks or swelling. I probably could've even gotten away with a full size up to a 10, if I liked them a bit looser. (Keep in mind my feet are quite wide).
I opted for these over the waterproof boot because I wanted something breatheable. What's nice about these is that even if they do get wet they'll dry out quickly due to their breathability! With waterproof boots, I've found they can actually be counter-productive by trapping moisture in the boot.
If you're looking at these because you're trying to decide between the Moab 1 Vent and the Moab 2 Vent, the answer is yes--the second one is noticeably better, in construction and material.
With the Moab 1, it seemed like in trying too hard to be comfy, they were too soft and plushy. The tongue was so puffy that it was impossible to tie the laces as tightly as I wanted to, leaving my foot feeling unsecure. They had too much give for rigorous hiking, and seemed more to me like a good casual-trail-walking boot.
The Moab 2 fixes this problem with more rigid material and an overall thinner, more streamlined build. Feels more athletic, you could say. It is a bit heavier due to the different material used, but it actually feels good. It feels like you're wearing something of better quality, and even with the added weight these boots are still definitely on the lighter end of hiking boots.
They're supportive and sturdy wihout feeling too stiff or clunky, which is exactly what I wanted.
Also a nice detail--they don't seem to need breaking in the way other hiking boots do. They feel great right out of the box!
Another thing to note, which was a big part of why I chose these boots, is that they have pretty decent arch support. I have high arches, so having good arch support is important to me.
I like these so much that I'd definitely consider ordering the waterproof version before it snows next year :)
I bought the size that I usually wear in sneakers, to allow for my feet to expand somewhat with long walks, and it worked out perfectly.
