ccop149363: yes these are true to size but I did go up 1/2 size because of the extra thickness from a liner + wool hiking sock.
Now to answer my own question in regards to wearing these boots for Philmont. I did indeed wear them at Philmont and I did like them. However, I did ultimately find them a little heavy for me personally given my size and my max pack weight of 30lbs. When I do Philmont again, I will go for more of a "trail" shoe with ankle support than a backpacking shoe. If you plan to have a heavy pack then highly recommend these boots.
