They are true to size and were a great bargain. They fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable. The side zipper makes it easy on and off. I can't wait for cold weather to wear them.
I ordered the Excel boots in taupe in a 7-1/2 wide which is what I normally order because of foot problems. They are a bit bigger/wider than some of my other Easy Spirits but that is fine with me. I have circulation problems in my feet and also have arthritis in one foot causing a small bunion. The extra width provides me so much more comfort and I can also insert my orthodics. I always wear thicker socks in the winter so they fill up any extra space. I just ordered another pair in grey.
My feet were swimming in this shoe. I ordered 7 1/2 but it felt like it was at least 8 1/2.
