duuuuuude..... your boots look so nice. i'm not a chromexel expert. however, i've bought aldens that fit a little big and a little small in the past. a little big is fine, thick socks or insoles make them work just fine. a little small does not work for me. i've tried breaking them in, wooden shoe tree stretching, not wearing them all day...... epic fail, all 3 times, sell for a loss.
