Very interesting that you bought the same size in both and that they fit equally well, as they are different lasts. I wear the shoes (last 4444) half a size smaller than the boots (last 4497s) and this is the normal recommendation. Just shows how tricky it can be. Glad that you love them so much. My suggestion, wear them, punish them, polish them ... they will look super and last you forever.
