Fit just right,
March 7, 2012
from NY
"I have owned Gokey shoes and boots for years, and am always impressed by their comfort, durability, and being made in the USA.
I always read the reviews carefully before a purchase. Therefore, I bought a size 9 instead of my usual size 81/2. They fit great! I look forward to many years of comfortable wear.
My only question would be about sizing, and why Gokey for several models seem to struggle matching one's traditional fit?

Watch the Sizing,
November 23, 2011
from Harper, Texas
"Well-made, light duty boot, not designed for serious field work. I had to return the size 11, my normal size, and ordered an 1l.5, which fits.. The width would be a bit cramped for people with wide feet, but the 11.5 works for me with light- to medium-weight socks.."

"The materials and construction are first rate, but D- width, the widest available, was too narrow, so I was forced to return them."

First Time Disappointment in Gokey,
November 12, 2011
By: NoReply
from Boulder, CO
"I ordered the new Gokey Camp Boot with great enthusiasm and anticipation of its arrival. The pictures depictated just the new style I was looking for. Have owned 3 other Gokey shoes, boots and mocassins over the last 21 years and love their quality and lasting craftsmanship, but when I received my boots, I found the length to be too short. I wear a size 9D. The quality of the shoe was just what I expected from Gokey, worth the cost. Perplexed at this, I called the Orvis rep and she was eager to help and I ordered a 9.5, which I have never have worn before, but went with her suggestion. Well, the replacement pair came in yesterday. The length was great, but the width was so narrow, I could not tolerate wearing them for 15 minutes. Sadly and so disappointed, I am sending them back and ordered the Gokey Rambler boot. I have owned this style Gokey since 1990, but after many new soles, its time to retire them. I do hope I don't have the same issue when the Rambler's arrive. Do understand, I do and have recommended Gokey to friends and family for years!
My rating of 3 is because of the not-true-to size, at least in my view. The quality of the leather and overall boot I would rate a 5, no doubt!
