They feel comfortable. No heel slippage and no discomfort on my toes. It's Hampton last so I went up .5 a size from my Barrie size. I can slide a finger in behind my heel so I'm thinking I could have stuck with my usual 8.5 but that probably would have ended up being tight in the toes. It does feel strange having the laces that close but I figure if it bothers me too much, I can stick a tongue pad in there and that should help the laces spread open a bit more.
