I got these shoes based on their design. I wanted an over-the-ankle boot without going halfway up my shin. These shoes fit that criteria perfectly. They are very comfortable, well made and breath well too. They are true to size (a little wide) but still fit well. They also have sliders made into the shoe (a nice touch for the price) All in all, a very well made shoe with a lot of extras (especially for the price!) I would highly recommend these shoes.
