Here is the general rules I've seen everywhere: the sizing is different for every model since the lasts are so different. Even if sized properly, they'll feel just a little small. They will stretch to fit your foot. I actually got the boots 1/2 size large (they fit 1/2 large, too) and, yup, they stretched a little.
Whoever said they're considered the best mid-tier brand, that's also what I've heard. Apparently the biggest competitor, Fiorentini and Baker, is lacking in durability.
