I just returned from a ski trip and these boots were great. They were brand new but very comfy and kept my feet warm in absolute blizzard conditions. The big decision seems to be sizing. I am always an 8 and never vary from that, but I took the advise of reviews and ordered down to a 7. The 7 fit but my toes were touching the end of the shoe and I was afraid it would rub if I wore them for any time. The 7 also rubbed the back of my heel. I had to go elsewhere to find an 8 (sold out)and that one fit great. I didn't find it run big at all. I was able to wear one thin pair of socks and one very thick wool pair with comfort. The larger size also didn't rub my heel either. I think the thick socks helped and I did use some band-aids to play it safe but I wore them very long and no problems what so ever. For me, I found they fit true to size with enough extra room to fit thick socks. I also was able to get my pants and underlayer tucked into them with comfort. For those pondering size, the only advice I can give on sizing is to just order both and keep the one that fits best since you will probably have these for many years.

Does the 9 fit better than the 8? I am usually an 8.5 but ordered down to an 8 and my toes are touching the top. I am trying to decide if I should send them back or see if they break in

I am looking for a size 8 in this boot with the red lacing and stitching but can't find an 8. Store here told me to order my size. I know someone who has these and she has an 8 and she wears an 8. I wear a 7-1/2 but in boots always do an 8 because of the socks. I don''t know what you paid for your 8s but they are on sale everywhere locally at 50% off now because stores are getting in their spring footwear. They only have 2 left here but in an 11 and 13. Do you want to sell your 8s?
