Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
First and foremost, the design and look of these boots are what caught my attention and in person, they look exactly like the pic.
Secondly and even better, I slipped my foot in to be pleasantly surprised with the cushy foot bed!!! No breaking in time - the first go round felt like they weren't new - the leather is so flexible and bends from the get go, the foot bed has a layer of something similar to memory foam so the sole confirms to your foot, the laces are a little stiff but it's actually a good thing when tucking them away, and lastly the zipper didn't stick and although that may seem silly to highlight, it's important to me that on a pair of tall boots, there's a smooth zip to get out the door quick and fast.
These are true to size but if you're stuck on sizing, go smaller - I wear a size 8 in most brands of boots and the Born Lecia size 8 is a tad roomier in the base and the higher calf area, than my other boots.
Lastly, the height and look/ feel of the top - I'm 5' 5" and from my heel to my knee cap, that measures about 19 or 20 inches; the top sits about an inch below my knee cap - the shaft height is dead on 17.25 inches and I love the height. The top is neither constraining or roomy, it's perfect from the top through the calf (mine = 13 inch around) down to the ankle.
