I liked these out of the box, and was excited to try them on--sadly, I couldn't even get my foot into it. I wear an 8 -8.5, so chose the 8/38, and it's just way too small. I like the blue, I love the lightweight feel, and it's flexible with seemingly good grip (untested). I'm returning for a bigger size, but am loving the Pajar Iceland boot for all those reasons, so I may just keep that one and be done with it.
Felt a full size smaller than marked
Felt true to width
Moderate arch support
