After much deliberation, I finally purchased these shoes for winter kayaking trips based on a recommendation of a fellow club member. I wore them last weekend and am very pleased with my purchase. The boots are are comfortable with a thicker sole than my usual water shoes. They kept my feet completely dry through multiple exits/entries and made a big difference to my level of comfort. I did wear them over socks for extra warmth though it's not necessary to do so. The shoes come in unisex whole number sizes only. I wear 8-1/2 women's and purchased the shoes in a size 9 which was a perfect fit. I will be recommending these to others in the club.
Used them for the 1st time the other night and they are wonderful. they kept my feet warm and dry. I am a male who usally wears an 8.5 shoe. The 9 was too small so I had to order a 10. The 10 is perfect in fit for my feet and I was able to wrap the top around my layers of wet suit, fleece pants, and my nrs paddle pants comfortable.

So I just got these and wanted to put a review up before anyone else makes my same mistake!
I am a woman with size 9 shoes (7.5 mens). I ordered, as advised, the size 8s in these because they're pretty much men's sizing. They fit me like women's 8s. I have to exchange them.
They do seem extremely quality and comfortable, however! I am very excited to get on the river with these and update this as to how warm, etc. they are! I also have stupidly large ankles, so the bootie versions of neoprene shoes I already have cut off the circulation to my feet (not fat ankles, just like... large bones? They're strange but I have to cut anything I get with elastic at the ankle because of this ...abnormality...). ANYWAY! Even in the 8s this does NOT seem like it will be a problem! The cinch at the top of the calves also will be great, and it can be cinched down quite a bit because the strap goes all the way around the circumference of the calf inside the boot, like pajama pants or something.
All in all, these seem great. Can't wait to get a size that fits!
