I grabbed a pair of high top grey suede wallies around a month ago, and I'm totally in love with them. What everyone has said is true, they're wild comfy and look great with pretty much everything. I haven't tested them in serious weather conditions yet, so hopefully they can withstand the winter. Also, yeah, I sized down one full size and they fit perfectly. Go down one.
I've also tried out my homie's desert boots, and those are great too. Clarks is where it's at.
