LOVE my boots!

I love my new boots! I'm from Australia and I was worried about ordering shoes without trying them on. I also was worried it would take too long for my things to be shipped here. Well, I ordered everything on Thursday night and on Friday received an email that my shipment had "hit a snag." Even with the snag it still arrived by Tuesday! Just 4 days later!! I was so impressed.

I was very confused about what size to get because all shoe size conversion tables say different things. I am an Australian size 7 and was told to get the US size 8.5. They didn't have it so I got the US size 8 and I'm glad I did! The US 8 is bigger than the Aus 7. It's probably 0.5-1.0 size bigger. But this particular boot is quite narrow so it fits my foot well. Because of the lace-ups I don't feel like the boot is too big at all. Plus now I can comfortably wear thick socks with them. This boot is soooo comfortable and warm! The black boots look really funky with jeans so I can wear them casually but they also have really good grip so I can wear them hiking. They're totally multipurpose. So stoked!!! I haven't used them for hiking yet but I'm trekking to Machu Picchu in August so we'll see how I go. :)
