They believe they are quite true to size. I wear 8 in Wolverine's 1000-mile boots (which supposedly run big) and these fit me well but a bit snugger than the Wolverine (my 8 Wolverines can take very heavy socks - these may be a bit too tight with the same socks).
I hope that's helpful.
For sale a pair of Buzz Rickson officer chukka boots in size 8E. Original shoebox is included.
In fantastic overall shape. Superb, unsurpassed shoe making craftsmanship. These were made as exact replicas (ti the stitch from what I hear) of military officers chukkas.
Very hard to find (available mostly, if not only, in Japan). Retailed for $500.
