I have small feet (size 4) but due to carelessness, I have developed pincer nails on most of my toes. Because of this, I have had to buy slightly bigger shoes to give me plenty of wriggle room. I had Hunter boots size 4 previously but they were ridiculously snug. I loved these Joules so I ordered them both in sizes 4 and 5.
I am very pleased to see that size 4 in Joules is a generous size, particularly with its wide toe box that gives my feet enough room to stay comfortable. In this warm-ish weather, I have placed insoles in my boots so I can wear normal cotton socks. In winters, I shall remove the insoles and wear my heat holder socks. I would say stick to your regular size. I have not worn these in the wet weather yet (haven't had to go out much in the rain) ... but the boots look sturdy and certainly are beautiful. I love the navy and yellow combo. Good price too methinks.
Wore boots for the first time for dog walking today. Comfy boots but rather large and I'm a size 8 generally in footwear. The answer for me maybe thicker socks and extra insoles. *UPDATE* Have just purchased another pair of these boots just because I was getting a bit bored with wearing the first pair I brought (they are still in good shape after a couple of years wearing them!) I went down a size as the older ones are a bit big in my usual shoe size. Now the new ones, in a funky design are perfect! Arrived promptly and well packaged. Highly recommended. 😃
Though slightly big, I am assuming allowing for boot socks. These wellies have now been tested in a torrential downpour and I was really thankful for my nice dry feet and socks. The gold coloured dragonfly gives them a feminine edge and I have been complimented on how nice they are. Rather than having a loud colour or just dead plain. So worth paying a little more for comfort.
They look lovely but not only were they too big but they also felt heavy. Probably more suited to dog walking on level ground or a trip to the shops rather than trundling through woods over rough terrain.
Lovely boots wore them for the first time yesterday to walk the dogs with all the rain we have been having very useful just a smiggen to big I ordered the 8 I'm normally a 7 I do have narrow feet with normal socks still a bit loose I will put some insoles into foot this time of year ,but they should be fine when wearing much thicker socks very comfortable, I had them on for alsmost 2 hours walking on all kinds of surfaces . Plus the are a lovely looking ankle wellie very pretty on a dull wet day the box they come is also a keeper
admittedly this is my first ever pair of wellies so it may be error on my behalf... bought them to wear in my dog grooming salon the first few wears they fit cozily and hugged my feet really well, but after a week of wearing them they started to stretch. I had to buy thick wooly insoles and wear thick welly socks to make them fit as they did as i first bought them. theyre no longer work wellies but theyre great to walk the dogs in the summer...looking forward to buying a second taller pair for the winter and this time i'll size down :-)
Loving my little boots. I went for size bigger as I would any welly so warm socks or insoles can be used. I'm happy after 2 hours on a wintry morning standing around and having comfortable dry feet that stayed warm.
I LOVE THESE BOOTS. THEY ARE GREAT FOR WALKING MY DOG. THE GRASS IS ALWAYS WET WHEN WE GO AND THESE BOOTS WERE GREAT. I LOVE THE DESIGN NICE AND COLOURFUL. I WILL GET A LONGER FITTING PAIR FOR THE WINTER.
I love these boots. This is about the 3rd pair I have had. The others have only lasted a season but I note that this pair has a 12 month guarantee so hopefully they will last longer. Ideal for walking the dog. I am a big size 8 & they fitted just right.
