Yeah, they are just snug. Otherwise, they look like new. I've had these boots since I was 14 or 15 years old. I'm now 25. They were in like new condition when I bought them, so I don't know exactly how old they are. I don't think they're ancient. My foot hasn't grown but my calf has. I remember that they were sized as a "narrow" and I am definitely not narrow anymore. I did have them stretched once. It helped, but not enough. The boots are fully lined. They are very, very nice quality, hence why I love them so much! Though I will admit I haven't taken the best care of them. Thank you for the tips!
