I have been hearing and talking about the 'Dayton service boot' for awhile
now in a particular clothing forum. I am sure you noticed the increase of
inquiry since your announcement of 125th anniversary (congrats!)
I have taken the time to try my best using your guide to measure my foot.
The general: I am interested in the distress brown leather w/ pull tab,
leather laces, and a non-slip sole. I am unsure about the width, perhaps
D/medium. (I am more on the flat-footed side)
Shoes I usually wear and sizes include: Vans (size9 -- thought recently I
had to size up to a 10 with their alternative line "OTW"), Paul Smith boot
(Ricard) (size42), Clarks desert boots (size9), Addidas (size9.5)...I
believe I am a pretty standard size 9.
Approximate measurements in inches:
Foot length: 10.75
(I measured by wrapping the measuring tape around my foot for the heel,
instep, and ball).
I have heard great things and really appreciate your time. I hope to
possibly place an order soon!"
Thanks for your email. From your measurements and your prior experience with
Other brands, it sounds like you are most likely a Dayton 8.5.
That said, if you can ring us at: 604 253-6671, we can walk you through
a few questions to help determine the best fit in a Dayton service boot.
Please ask for Kayla or Michelle.
Also, before calling think about whether or not you will be utilizing
anything that might increase the volume need of the boot e.g. an
orthotic device, foot bed, wearing extra socks etc.
We will be happy to serve you and we look forward to hearing from you.
