These are a perfect look, feel, style. They are not tight by any means, but hold the foot well all around, so I would say they are snug (positive compliment)... I tried others from Overland, and while they fit, they left ample room, especially on the top of the foot area, not sure if this was for some very thick socks... or just the inherent design of the boot. These will feel at home in the woods as well as any urban setting - streets, cafe... etc.
Bought them for our European trips in the winter time - for Christmas.
