Bummin, these 9.5 trench boots in brown cxl are sick as H E Double Hockey Sticks (about the nicest looking standard work boot I've seen), BUT the fit is all things considered too small, as my toes touch when I walk- standing still they're spot on but that's not really practical frown.gif Alternatively, the 10s fit like ass on me (like insanely too big!). So my conundrum is do I try to stretch them, or do I sell em and give up on the trench boot dream?

10 + insole + thick boot socks.

I hear ya but it bugs the crap out of me when I need to compromise with a whole bunch of filler. Like a 14 yo girl stuffing her bra!

Your toes are touching the front of the boot in the 9.5?

boots aren't supposed to fit like sneakers or dress shoes.  you should have some wiggle room in a proper fitting boot.  as long as your heel is locked in and there isn't more than say 3/4" in front of your toes it's probably ok.  an insole will snug them up just enough.  soon enough you'll forget the insole is even in there and you'll be able to enjoy your stylin boots for years

The 10s gave me about 2 fingers of wiggle room. And my heel was swimming in my right boot. Trust me they didn't fit

If they are OK standing; that makes me think that your feet are sliding forward.... What is your heel doing during all of this? Is it planted? Maybe add a tongue pad to stop your foot from sliding.

i know you're against the 10s, but if your toes are touching in the 9.5s 10 should do the trick - maybe you just need to try them again? Also - dropping an insole in there just makes them more comfortable and fills the volume - a lot of people purposefully size up so they can put an insole in. The boots look too sick with that denim - you just gotta find the right size
