Sizing Recommendations

  • Order the same size that you wear in other leather boots or leather dress shoes
  • Do not order the same size that you wear in sneakers as they tend to run 1/2 to 1 size larger than our boots
  • If you are between sizes, we recommend ordering the smaller size
  • Of the customers who order the wrong size, over 81% order a 1/2 too large
  • All of our boots are in traditional 'D' width
