I read through this thread for the purpose of getting info on sizing before ordering the Mountain Light Elkins. I also called and spoke to someone at Danner before sending the order through their website and they also recommended to size down by 1/2. So I ordered a size 9.5. I found the last to be true to size and did not need to size down from my normal shoe size 10. Well, to be more exact, if these were worn without socks, the boot 9.5 would be OK. So I've returned them...
