7.0

For Buttero boots, they run large.

I've had the Butteros for 2 years and have worn them in all conditions. Very solid boots. I've replaced the heels twice but the soles are still going strong. I use Obenauf and do use shoe trees. I expect to get many more years of wear out of these boots. The leather is very substantial.
Hands down superior to the Frye's IMO.

Frye look alot uglier than Butteros IMO.

Agree with the guy who said Fiorentini and Baker. Same price point, and nicer shapes, especially when you have bigger feet. Buttero gets really chunky in bigger sizes.

How do the Fiorentini and Bakers compare to Wings and Horns? The look seems kind of similar on the 745s.

The leather's surprisingly nice for the price point though not nearly as thick as the W&H. The W&H is giving a fashion twist to a work boot, while the Fiorentini's are really just a fashion boot.

try tacco leather insoles to take up space in the butteros if you happen to buy one size too large.

I am a 8 in converse, and 9 in Nikes. I bought the 41 in buttero work boot which was too large but were pretty happy with them after putting in an insole.

What size insole did you purchase?
Are they still very roomy with the insoles inside the boot?

Good summary. I want some Fiorentini's at some point.

Just tried to order the 7.0 Buttero's and they are sold out.
Hopefully they will restock soon? Is Barney's the only place to get?
I may just suck it up and pick up the W&H boots.
Based on a size 8 Converse and 9 Nikes, what size would be in w&H?
Thanks.

for insoles I was using some cheap shit for a while, but someone on sufu directed me to Tacco leather insoles and the deluxe version fits my feet great. Get a size 10 mens insole for size 41 Buttero boots. (I ordered them from The corner cobbler website but I think other places have them)

Barney's in Dallas has them (Butteros), ask for Miguel in men's shoes. You are either a an 8 or 7.5 in W+H's; I sized down .5 from my Chucks size.

So it looks like I am SOL with a size 40 Buttero and the Brandos are no longer appealing.
I came across these Timberland Boot Company boots.
Anybody have any experience with these?

What model is that? Link? edit- found it: http://www.timberland.com/product/in...ductId=3717552 code work15 brings the total down to $335 shipped. I'm not sure if it can be had elsewhere cheaper though.
