Ok, so i'm a woman with a big hoof .. that being said, it's up to you how much credit you give my review ;-)... This is a really comfortable boot, with good ankle supported, & it feels lighter than other weighty boot i've worn. It has room in the toe area for comfort (rather than feeling cramped), but my ankle is strapped in well, & doesn't push on my ankle bone like others do due to the padding.
I spent 1hr trying on boots & shoes in store, walking/manouvering up & down the ramps in store -i was really impressed with the hold of the shoe on my foot & the surface, & also with the service staff. This is the 2nd boot i've bought from Cotswolds, & i have to say, i always come away feeling confident in my footwear - the footwear staff really know their stuff, & have lots of handy hints re lacing, etc.
