CT/Loake sizing?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was planning on getting a pair of the Chelsea boots. How accurate is the US size = UK size +.5 rule?

IME, UK size = US size - 1

US 9 = UK 8, for my feet at least

I normally wear a U.S. 9.5D (Alden, AE). I ordered a pair of the suede Chukkas from CT in a 9UK and sent them back in exchange for a 8.5UK - which fit fine. Given that the Loakes are an "F" width which is more analogous to a US "E" width, my narrower foot had way too much room when only going down 1/2 a size. The lesson I've drawn from this based on other English shoe buying expereince is if it is a UK "E" width, go down 1/2 a size; if it is a UK "F" width, do down a whole size. This is my expereince, your mileage may vary......

I agree with the UK+1. I normally wear a 9 US , so I ordered an 8.5 UK, which was too large.

Same here. BTW, I called Tyrwhitt and they said they are an EE width, which he said is normal in the UK, "maybe a bit wider than a US D but not extra wide". Mine aren't noticeably wide, they are just big.

CT is UK+1 for me as well, and I have 11E US feet

Just my personal experience, but I'm an 8 1/2 in U.S. sizing and originally tried the UK size 8 in the CT chukka boot. Upon receipt, quickly realized that the size 71/2 was the way to go.

Agree on the -1 size. Normally 10.5 US, a 9.5 loake chelsea fits great.
