This is a fabulous boot. The rubber is soft, the footbed is comfortable and the height and calf size perfect. I have very skinny calves and narrow foot and heel. I did put a soft sole lining in which made the boot fit snug. No sliding foot with this boot and there is lots of room for big toe. I can wear these all day with no problem, unlike the cheaper boots I owned that were too wide and sloppy on the foot. Since I walk on uneven terrain, it is important for the foot to not slip around in the boot. I highly recommend these. Definitely designed for a woman”s foot and not bulky.
