Just received the Herring Tregony boots, love them instantly and the leather feels great.
I'm not sure if I got the sizing correct.With normal socks and without an insole they feel a bit too big, maybe half a size, or one size max.
With an additional wool insole they fit much better. I want to wear them in winter obviously, but I don't know if I should always count on wearing the insole.
I have a good amount of room in the toe box but my instep is rather low, so there is some are in that area. Would you suggest the hassle of returning them for a smaller size?
I guess it depends where you are located, for shipping.
I'd say return them for a smaller pair.
I have a pair of Herring boots I bought in their sale, and they're a half size large. Hadn't go my size at the time so I figured they'd be okay with thick socks.
Usually wear them in winter and with thick socks and insoles, but still sometimes feel slightly big. Wish Id held out for better size.
So, return them if yo can. Herring are good with returns.
But please take a few good photos and post them here first.
Much better to see these boots in the real world than the photos on Herrings site.
