Note: Rothco boots tend to run a half size to a full size too large. We recommend ordering a half or a full size down. This means if you wear a size 10, you should order a size 9.5 or 9. Canvas & nylon upper. Black leather toe & heel. Black rubber Panama sole.

As far as comfort goes, they do not come with insoles and are not padded, so I was responsible for my own comfort there. With a set of moisture-wicking foam insoles from the local grocery store, my boots feel like an uncomfortable pair of Rockport loafers. I haven't owned any other pairs of jungle boots, so I can't say how these Rothco boots compare with others.
Three months later - I've let them sit and air out. They are tolerable to wear if I am in a well ventilated area. My husband won't ride in the car with me if I'm wearing them. But it's getting better.
I have been wearing these boots for three months. Mostly every day. I'm not on my feet a lot but I work in a building with concrete floors. I also ride a motorcycle most days but I don't drag my feet at stops or anything. The soles of these boots are nearly worn out already. Under the balls of my feet the boots are flat and thin. I had my last pair three years and I don't think these will make 4 months. I think I'm going to go back to Doc Martins and just pay more to get something that will stand up to life.
Size 11 sneakers fit me well, and size 11 hiking boots fit me well. But, these Rothco boots in size 11 stick at least two inches beyond the end of my big toe, like clown shoes. I simply won't ever wear something that over-sized.
Otherwise the boots seem fine, and I might buy a pair the next size down if the vendor approves my refund for the first pair.
Either Rothco has its sizing wrong, or multiple other shoemakers do. I wish the manufacturers would size their items accurately, and consistently with the rest of the world.
One note, unless you wear thick socks, these are rather uncomfortable. I wore them for two days on a hiking trip in the everglades by about the 3rd hour, my feet were killing me. I put on another layer of hiking socks and they were ok for a few more hours.
The SMELL is like that of strong tar. I've aired them, used leather cleaner, and weeks later they still have some odor.
Update: almost a year later and still holding strong
