Has anyone tried the Blondo 'Mady' waterproof lace-up boot? If so, what can you tell me about the fit (true to size? Or size up for my UK 5.5D (slightly wide) feet?) Are Blondo booties actually waterproof (not just water resistant), & comfy out of the box (or do they require insoles & breaking in)?

These tick all my HEWI boxes for practical dark brown ankle boots with gold hardware (but also a little casual 'edge') for a while now, so these are very tempting (weatherproof but with an easy side zip? What sort of (comfortable!) sorcery is this??) but I would prefer not to have to pay international return shipping charges for exchanging the wrong size

PS - It seems Blondo also has an all white leather ankle boot at Nordstrom (the red laces should be easy enough to swap out, though I'm sure some would be happy to leave them as is - looking at you, Angie ). Just a PSA for those of you who like white soles on your shoes
