    Incredible Boots - 9/29/2014
    By: from Florida

    I was so excited when I opened the box and saw and felt these boots. They were even better than I had hoped they would be, incredible quality, rich rugged leather and they felt great. We needed a 12 and they don't make a 12 but the12.5 was definitely the way to go. Another fabulous Orvis product. You know your customers!

    Great boots - 1/15/2014
    By: from Minneapolis, Minnesota

    Love these boots - just what boots should look like. I still have a pair from 30 years ago. Great in the snow, handsome to wear in town, and a warm pair of socks is all that is needed for Minneapolis.

    Great boots - 1/28/2013

    I have these boots for myself, so I ordered a pair for my husband. They are great boots, durable, and perfect for walking in the woods hunting. They do run narrow, so I had to send these back for a wider pair. Those came in and are just right.

    A Great Gift - 1/1/2013
    By: from Vancouver Island, Canada.

    Seldom does a product live up to its hype. These boots do. When I was in college in the United States my good brother asked me what I would like for my birthday. I said a pair of Gokey snake proof boots since I collected snakes. As foreign students we were short on cash so he said he would pay for one boot if I paid for the other. I paid for the left he paid for the right. I still have the boots which have remained in good condition.

    I first ordered these boots after seeing a buddy of mine wearing his that he bought in the 80's. So I ordered a pair thinking they would be great as well. I normally wear a 10.5 boot with a normal width. So just to be on the safe side I ordered a 11 with a normal width. The boot itself is made from great material. However, it was waaaay to narrow! I couldn't even get my foot all the way in to the boot because it has a VERY narrow neck at the point where the zipper ends at the base of the boot. So be wary of this. I returned the boots without a problem and ordered a 11.5 E and love them! my foot easily fits into the boot, and is properly snug with the right pair of socks. I use them for hunting and riding the trails with my horses. I would recommend them to anyone, but be sure to get a wider size than normal!

    Comfortable and Functional Boots oddly cut - 3/14/2012
    By: from Virginia

    These are excellent boots. The quality of the leather is unrivaled and they are well made. They are attractive and functional. I was amazed how well they fit, they are cut with wide toes which makes them very comfortable. The only thing I would question about these boots is the cut. The top of the high snakeproof boots are cut twice as large as my calf and I have rather large calves. It seems unnecessary, somewhat bulky, impractical, and not particularly attractive. I went with the Sandanona Pull-On Boots instead and I feel less awkward if I wear them on my way in or out of town.

    Hard to get correct fit - 7/19/2011
    By: from Texas

    I ordered a pair of 12 D's and they are way small. Took them to the local Orivis store who ordered a 12 EE, better, but still way small....narrow and too short. We even put my foot in a measuring machine and it came back 11 1/2 medium. I wear a 12D in everything else so the message is order a whole size larger than you think you wear. Boot is nice looking and you don't have to wait six months to get them like with Russell. My only complaint is having to send boots back and forth for correct fit.
