I could not decide what size to order. I called a local Timberland Store who said most of their boots are sized a little large to accommodate a sock, so i ordered my normal size. When they arrived - with no sock - they were so tight I could barely get them on. The next half size was sold out, but they were so cute and SUCH a GREAT price - that my hubby and I decided I should go ahead and "try" the full size bigger. They are perfect - with or without a sock! I got the "Dark Olive" color. They are true to color. I have a couple of skirts to wear them with but my favorite is a long, plaid, flannel skirt with black lace trim underneath - they are adorable with that one! Dress them up, dress them down, comfy, cute, and functional boots at a STEAL! And NOT available in ANY land store around MY "town" - which I love b/c I won't "run into" anybody else wearing "MY" boots!
