im worried that i didnt size down enough on my beckmans. im brannock 10d, and bought 9.5 boots. i have lots of toe room with thick socks, like a thumb and a quarter or close to an inch from big toe. is this normal? my right foot is slightly smaller, and has more room, boot fits looser and longer. ive tried the iron rangers in 9, and returned them for 9.5 because my toes were hitting the front of the boot. i dont know if it would have stretched out to fit, they did stretch it for me multiple times at the shop. my 9.5 iron rangers have less toe space than the beckmans, i think that the heel of the beckmans sits a couple mm further back than iron ranger (from side profile this seems to be the case).
the shape of the toe on this boot seems to be long and "pointy", i dont think my toes would fit close to the end of the toe box because of how it tapers slightly.
i tried the beckman in 9 once, but on my smaller foot, and it was a very tight fit, but then again these things soften up considerably. i worry that my larger foot would not have enough toe room. I dont want to look like im wearing huge boots, which these are long.
so is it normal to have these boots run long with extra space in toes? thanks for your advice! sorry for the rambling. i have gotten responses on reddit that this is normal, and i appreciate the help, i just want to know other peoples experience with the boots.
