It feels odd to post a review about boots you're sending back, but in case it's helpful:
These feel true to size if a bit wide (which normally works for me). From a visual inspection, they also seem very well made (looking at the stitching, the relative symmetry, etc.) and the upper felt comfortably snug.
However, the sole is incredibly stiff , more so than all but one pair of hiking/backpacking boots I've had previously (Montrail Moraines), and I found that level of stiffness really uncomfortable in the long haul. However, if you ARE looking for a super-stiff sole, these may be the boots for you.

I loved that these boots were comfortable right out of the box: they were very supportive without weighing a ton. There was no break-in period, none.

Unfortunately, neither the waterproofing nor the soles have lasted. They now wet through very quickly, and there is a crack across the sole at the ball of my right foot. I have had them for three years, but they've seen relatively little use in that time (the tread itself shows minimal wear).

As another reviewer said, if you don't plan to wear them often or for long hikes, they're probably fine, but if you plan to hike in them more often, I'd look elsewhere.
