I could see why UK dist. BBs only have the UK size. Anyways, it appears mine have either both or US only. and rebel222 is right, depends on the last. The archdale last (the chisel sq. toe) fits me fine. The rounder toe harrington last doesn't quite fit the same or at least on my foot. I will say in general BBs tend to run larger. For instance, I fit into a 8UK in BB in the archdale, 8.5UK in Lobb on the 8000, and 9UK in EG on the 888. YMMV.

This has been my experience as well. I'm a 9.5 D for US, and almost always an 8.5 UK, but for BB archdale went with the 8 UK. It is a bit snug, but fits better than the 8.5 UK which was too large.

Apart from the Stratton, BBs do tend to run a half size large in my experience.

Remember, sizing can vary once you move from average to larger sizes.

To clarify, BBs do NOT run large in my experience. but it always makes sense to try them on first if you can.
