Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I will echo what others have said here regarding the sizing issue. My shoe size is a 9.5, so I ordered a 10. It was too narrow in the toe box so I returned it for a 10.5. This has worked out well with the moderately-heavy merino wool socks that I usually wear. The insoles that comes with the boot are very thin with little arch support (cheap!), so I've upgraded those with a better quality, more comfortable insole. Besides being my everyday shoe here in N. Idaho snow country, I've had the boots out snow shoeing a couple of times and they have performed well. My feet haven't overheated and have remained dry - what more could one ask for from their boots?! Another great product from North Face!
