These hiking boots are beautiful, well made, the leather is gorgeous and the fur just adds to it. I am a 7.5, I ordered the 38. You need to size up. They were tight on me with a trouser sock. So I ordered immediately and sent the 38s back for a 39. With a thick hiking sock, these are perfect. I love them. I got them to go with the fur cape offered on Overland, they look amazing together.
