This boot is perfect! At first I thought maybe the leg shaft would be too high for my 5 ft 3 inch stature but the 18 inch height looks great. I usually wear a size 8 with room for a heavy sock . The sizes must run small because they feel more like a 7 1/2. Overall, I'm very happy with my investment! Oh, and when it says "wool lined" , only the bottom and over the toe area has wool. So, this boot is not totally wool lined which is a bit of a deception on their part.
