Rated 5 out of 5 by TheCuban GOOD BOOT, GOOD PRICE!
They fit fine right out of the box, they are really good looking, and appear to be fairly well made, especially for the value price. The stitching and finish is comfortable on the feet. If they wear as good as they feel and look, I'd say these are a terrific value! I ordered a half size up as recommended and that worked out fine.

Love these boots! They are so comfortable and they fit my feet like no other boot ever has. My first order was black cherry in color and what a beautiful color they are. I ordered another pair in black. thank you for making such an awesome boot at such a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoolDog Very comfortable boots
I was surprised how well they fit without a break-in period. I got a lot of compliments from my friends on how nice they looked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by acvette09 Sized normally! But otherwise great boots.
When ordering, this boot has a little side note, saying it runs small. I disagree. I wear a 12, so because it "runs small", I ordered a 13, and I was swimming in it. Not a big deal...I just have to exchange it. But it will cost you $10 in return shipping unless you live next to a store. So I personally would order your normal size. Otherwise they are great boots!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RBinSanBerdoo Surprisingly good...
Nobody ever accused a boot manufacturer from the Indian subcontinent of understanding what Western boots are all about (in particular, a Texan), but this boot is surprisingly good.
The boot is still new to me, but there are two significant negatives (more may become evident, eventually, but let's give credit for a very good effort for a cost-effective boot):
1. The composite sole, which is made of a material right out of the 1950s (it seems to me). Past experience with similar soles indicates the compromises which were made to meet the necessary price point, but I hope I am incorrect about that;
2. The shaft lining is man-made and (therefore) will be much hotter than leather (or even fabric and even synthetic fabric, if breathable). It is clear Shepler's made the necessary compromises to bring a lower price point to that segment of the market.
I needed a less expensive boot for rare occasions dress wear, and this boot fits the spec. They are not Lucchese or even Dan Post, but they beat the all man-made materials in some manufacturers (and quite frankly, the man-made shaft characteristic of some other well-known brands).
Shepler's says buy 1/2 size larger, but that did not prove correct for me. My size is between 11-1/2 and 12; sometimes one fits, the next time I need the larger size. So I took Shepler's word, and ordered 12EE, just in case. I could have ordered the 12D, which would have been fine.
That said, the sole/foot lining compromises in the less expensive boot in EE wide were well mollified with $10 Dr. Scholl's Extra Support insoles. Perfect fit...and no negatives to the necessary sacrifices Shepler's made to bring this price point to market.
