Ready for the rain now!
Love these! For sure, order a size up. I have a very narrow foot and could barely get them off! I wear an 8.5 and ordered a 9. These boots make a rainy day much sunnier! I am sure I will order another pair soon.

Quality Rain Boots for a Great Price
I did a ton of research on rain boots, I really wanted some good quality and comfortable boots, but I didnt want to spend a ton of money for something I realistically wont (hopefully) wear all that often. I found that the Kamiks consistently got great reviews, but I also read that alot of reviewers said they ran on the small side. I'm typically exactly a size 6, although I take a 6 1/2 in certain brands, such as New Balance or Puma. I wanted to make sure I'd have enough room for thick socks, or to tuck in my pants so I tried on a different style of Kamiks at a local department store. The 6 did fit a little big snug, so I ordered the 7. The 7 is still snug in the shaft, which isnt a bad thing (keeps rain out!) but a little loose in the foot area. This works out well, because it allows a little room. Although I've only worn them once, I walked over a mile at a rugged pace - not only did I stay completely dry, but they were super comfortable as well, and the traction is great on slippery surfaces! Highly recommend these, what a great value. They are cute as an added bonus, too.

Great for those with small calves!
I'm 5'6" and 110lbs with small calves (13" at widest) but slightly large feet (8-8.5) and always have problems with boots. After reading other reviews saying that these run small, I gave it a try, and they are wonderful! I ordered a 9 but then exchanged if for an 8 since the 9 was too loose around my ankle/foot. The 8s are a snug but comfortable fit without looking too bulky on my narrow calves/ankles. My 8.5 foot fits comfortably without any toes pinching and I can still tuck even my bootcut jeans into them. The dark brown is a nice alternative to the basic black! It's a great price for a sturdy boot!

These boots are great- they're comfortable, stylish and great quality for a reasonable price. I've bought similar boots from discount stores for a similar price but these are much better quality (Kamik is a great name). The calf is slightly tight but I can fit light jeans or pants in them (my legs are pretty muscular). I knew from a previous purchase that Kamik boots run small so I ordered 1 size larger and they are a perfect fit.

Fun, Fashionable & Comfy. Very Small!
So, I have a couple pairs of Kamik's. Olivia and Ellie. The Ellie's look more like patent shiny boots, and these Olivia's look a bit more like traditional rain boots. After having read others reviews, I knew that Kamik's run very small ... particularly at the top of the calf (recommended for "slim calves," and also across the bridge of the foot (where the foots bends where it meets your leg). I went up 1/2 a size in the Ellie's to a 9, and they are still a bit snug, but very comfortable and supportive...and in these Olivia's, I went up to a 10 (when I normally wear an 8.5), and they fit very well with rain boot liners and an cushioned insert that I put in. These fit a little larger than my other Kamik's, in my experience, but still run a bit small. I love them, though. And Altrec had them for a great price! Love these boots and love shopping here.
