These are incredibly comfortable, and not nearly as heavy as some other men's platform boots I've worn over the years. I normally wear a women's size 7.5-8 W and not thinking about the fact that these are men's shoes, so wider in the toe already, I ordered a size 7 and it was far too big. A size 6 would have fit perfectly, the toe on these are very comfortable and wide already.
However I also have very wide calves (18 inches around, relaxed at the widest point of my calf) and they're all muscle so they don't really squish into a shoe and these fit me at the top of the boot but they didn't really look good, it was obvious that they were meant to be laced tighter there. If you have large calves and find women's shoes often too narrow these will fit very well, but if your calves are like mine then you may need to buy a zipper enlarger thing or longer laces.
