Thank you. The sizing advice/experience on the board is a bit contractictory - one person said he was a size 12 but for a 1000 Mile boot had to go down to 10.5. Someone else, like you, said they went down one half size.
It's interesting that the 744 Ltd 1000 Mile shell cordovan boot fits, in my experience, TTS: I measure 11 on the Brannock, that's the size I got for the 744, and it's absolutely perfect for me. Several stores that carry/carried the 744 Ltd also recommended TTS. I've read that several people found the boot a bit narrow (which can be good or bad, based on foot shape). I am a C width and I find that the 744 fits much better in the heel area than my Alden Barrie last shoes.
Others may disagree, but it seems like sizing is highly dependent on which 1000 Mile boot you're talking about & the shape of your foot.
As for the Krause boot, if I do order it, I will likely go with 10.5, which is one half size down from my Brannock size.
