These boots are brand new and in the box they came in. They are a roomy size 6.5 or a tighter 7, though undoubtedly will stretch somewhat. I recently bought them from an online retailer but found them too tight as a size 7 (no room left for thick socks). The retailer returned me the same size twice so I gave up trying to deal with them - and thought I might as well sell on ebay. They are nice boots otherwise, with buckles on both sides.
