size fit as i expected. felt only a bit heavier than i anticipated when comparing to a similar Muck brand boot I was replacing. My first pair of Mucks held up through 5 hard fall/winter seasons in the woods hunting and in the pastures tending cattle. I was very impressed. A great gift to receive or to give. My one issue with Muck is the comfort. For short periods of use they're great, but after a long day on my feet the lack of support in the boot's construction contributed greatly to foot and leg pain. I will be using inserts for this new pair.
