These shoes look great, but they fit quite small. I'm a US9.5, and I ordered a US10, and they were still to tight in the toe box. Even sizing up to an 11, they're tight with thicker socks. They also rub on the ankle, if you have big calves like me, and that can irritate the skin. I've taken to wearing them with higher, thin socks. They look great, though. They repel water, and are just stylish enough to give an outfit a bit of panache while still going with everything.
If you're going for comfort, I think the normal Chelsea boots would have a more forgiving toe and less risk of rubbing on the high ankle, but after breaking these in, I really like them.
I love my pointed Chelsea boots. They fit well and are very comfy. The quality is excellent as is the customer service.

I would give 5 stars on both counts and will definitely purchase others from Wills. The pair I have my eye on are currently out of stock!
