I have wide feet so I usually have to purchase men's hiking and athletic shoes. As with any hiking boot, I bought these a 1/2 size up, in a women's size 11, and they worked great for me. Took strenuous all-day hikes both in Denali Nat'l Park and in Chugach Forest (south of Anchorage). These boots were comfortable and kept my feet dry during stream crossings, with very little break-in b/f my trip. I did replace the soles w/ cushioned athletic insoles for a little more arch support. Loved the boots and so happy to be in the women's version for a change.......
