Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
These fitted me pretty well but were a little bit wide across the toes. The box was slightly damaged plus the inner sole had been twisted by the paper packing. The shoes were a bit creased across the front so I think somebody had definitely tried them on and walked around in them ? Maybe returned them? They were not advertised as returned goods but they were a good price? I kept them because otherwise they were ok but I’m glad they were not bought for somebody else as a gift for example. I wore them straight away and they did not require any breaking in. Extremely comfortable. I don’t like the fur trim on the tongue but it is hardly noticeable when the boots are laced up. They are not ‘wellies ‘ by the way.
