I just got these boots today. I was eagerly anticipating them because my current pair of Merrell winter boots are about worn to pieces, but I keep wearing them. I pulled these new Polorand 8 boots out of the box, loosened the laces and my feet just sunk into them. Just exactly the right size, I wear 9 1/2 and that is what I ordered and got. They feel like a foam glove wrapped around my feet ... totally awesome. I will have to write another review after I take them out into the Alaskan mtns this weekend. But upon first impression and fit, they are great.
