I actually fit into a child's 7 boot, so I got these hikers at my local sports store when I needed the extra ankle support for a recent injury. I have to say they are becoming my favourite boot to wear anywhere! They are warm, cozy, and offer lots of ankle and arch support for my feet. Not to mention the velcro closure means no annoying loose laces to tie again and again. I can't wait to test them out actually hiking this summer.
