I just received a pair of Alden Shell Cordovan Chukkas and I know these fit a 1/2 size large, but I still went with my normal size of 7.5D. If i wear thicker socks they fit very well but if I wear thinner socks they leave a little too much room than I am used to. Should I go down 1/2 size or just stick with the size I have now?
As i dont like to wear thick socks. I always go for a snug fit in the beginning. After the shoe/boot breaked in, it will fit like a gloves.
