The logging boots and every Billy Reid shoe run a size small. I normally wear a US11 and wear a size 10 for Billy Reid. I checked out the logging boot this weekend again -- it's nicer than I remember and has some very cool details (contrast seams, contrast faux-stitched welt). Leather and construction are top-notch. I guess the part I like most about them is that unlike other boots of the same type (Caterpillar, Timberland, etc.) they're more modern and slim. They lace up high with leather laces which is a nice touch.

I spoke to someone at the Dallas location, and he says they run true to size. According to him, if I am a 10.5 in Brooks Brothers, then I should be a 10.5 for the logging boots. haha, so from what why said and the SA, i'm still not sure what size to get.

haha...i might just pull the trigger. I just called a SA at the houston store and they also recommended me a 10.5 if i planned on wearing a thicker sock, based on me wearing a 10.5 in BB.

Both SA at the Dallas and Houston store were really helpful, even though I was planning on purchasing online. +1 in my book.

Brooks Brothers shoes have all different sizing. Some are true some are not because they're all from different shoemakers and have different lasts.

^ why, it'd also be helpful if you tell which shoemakers you're a size 11 in.
post #24 of 143
good point why.

man i hate buying shoes online. haha another SA told me to buy in my sperry topsider size. he would usually size down 1/2 a size, but for the logging boot he said he wouldn't size down.

so he recommended me an 11, since thats what i wear in sperry.

Yeah, I thought about that but with different lasts it makes it hard to reference. My foot is pretty much exactly 11 inches from big toe to heel. I wouldn't size down for the logging boot. I'd personally wear a 10 for the logging boot but a 10.5 would work too.

i just bought a 10.5, so i'll update you guys.

Done. I ordered a pair of the Loggers in size 9. I wear a size 9 in Red Wings as well. Hopefully it works out or they'll end up on the Style Forum Market.
post #28 of 143
Nicely done fellas. Please let us know how the turn out.
post #29 of 143
I'm going to go with a half-size down because I have such narrow feet, size 10. I suppose since there's a handful of us all blindly ordering the boots, we can sort things out in swaps

I called the new york store and was told to size down by .5 from the 9 I usually wear.
