They're wearable without any insole, but a bit loose. Plus, your feet hurt like hell after a while, since you're walking on wood.
It sounds like we've got similar sized feet. I'm thinking of ordering a pair tomorrow and I'll probably be sizing similarly this time. I already own a pair of a cap toe style Dayton boot (basically these
with a different sole). My current pair is 10.5 (when I sent in measurements they initially suggested 10 until I told them I'd be adding an insole), but I have probably less than a quarter inch of room between my toes and the tip of the shoe. Luckily the high vamp allows for some vertical room at least. But unless Dayton tells me the service boots run longer than their others, I think I'll size up a half size this time.
