This is very true. I have the NW last in rough out boots I use for work and you do need to size up. If you go lace to toe you can go one size narrower. I wear 10 E in the Semi-dress and Farmer/Rancher but in the smoke jumper lace to toe NW last I wear 10.5D after first trying the 10 D which was to short.
I've been offered to trade for a pair of Whites in Horween British Tan Chromexcel as trade. If anybody has this leather can you tell me how robust it is? Is it a good thick capable of being worked hard or is it a thinner leather?
