Run huge, fit is way off
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 7.5 & 8
Have a pair of Salewa mountaineering boots that I love, tried these. Purchased in the size I already own, they run very large. In comparing the same size same brand footwear side by side, these are about a half inch bigger! Returned for a half size smaller. The length fit well, although the built-in gaiter fit floppy and lose around my ankle. Upon trying with adequate socks, encountered a massive amount of room and slip in the heel, which would only lead to blisters. I have a fairly proportionate foot, it is hard to imagine these would fit any woman in the heel/ankle area. Too bad because they are awesome looking shoes!
Suspect that both pairs I received had been tried on/returned before, as tags were removed along with very light wear on the tread.
