    A question with regard to sizing on the SLP boots. I know there are obviously many different models, but what general sizing should I know about before ordering online. I actually live in an area that doesn't allow me to try on any SLP boots at all unless I traveled hours to do so.

    The problem is that I have seen mixed opinions all over the place about the boots. I feel most say they fit "true to size" but I've seen reputable SLP owners in threads like this and others online mention sizing down 0.5 size to potentially a full size. I've heard suede has more give so you could size down a full size on the suede boots. I'm a size 42 in most sneakers but I'm wondering if I should go with a 42 or if a 42 would be a more comfortable fit?

    Not my experience. I can wear up to a 42 in Nike sneakers (and I'm usually between 40-41 in other brands), and I had to size down to 39 for a pair of Jodhpurs. All the SLP boots I've ever tried ran way large.

    And the point is instantly proven, yet again - order the pair you want from someone with a good return policy and don't assume varying styles (and materials within styles) fit the same. If buying used and you don't know the fit of the particular model then ask the seller for the info or buy at your own risk.

    My sizing experiences. Athletic shoes are hard to compare to because the sizing varies so much depending on model.

    Nikes: ~8.5 depending on shoe
    Y3: ~7.5-8.5 depending on shoe
    Margiela GATs (highs and lows): 41
    Pierre Hardy: 41
    Common Projects (achilles): 40
    Common Projects (chelseas): 41 (40 is slightly too tight)
    Raf Simon (astronauts): 40
    balenciaga multimatieres (high): 40
    balenciaga runners: 41
    Lanvin: 7
    YSL combat zip (leather): 41
    YSL SL/01 (leather): 41
    YSL SL/01H (leather): 41
    YSL jodphur low (suede): 40.5
    YSL jodphur high (suede): 40.5
    YSL chelsea (leather): 41
    YSL Wyatt (sidezip leather): 41
    YSL Wyatt (harness leather): 41
    YSL Wyatt (harness suede): 40.5 for older seasons, 41 for current season

    Also, this is my understanding of materials:

    Suede (most flexible) > buffalo (more flexible, used in the silver/gold wyatts this season) > python (lined with calf) > calf (least flexible).

    Not sure where the "cordovan" from the Eli boot this season fits, but I just tried on a 41 and it was uncomfortably tight. Also, pretty sure it actually isn't cordovan.

    I thought he was asking for other people's sizing experience to extrapolate his own size? I figured if I included multiple brands he can get an idea of what to order, just trying to be helpful. Specific models like gats/achilles/ect. are pretty consistent compared to (for example) nike sizing.

    100% cotton has me a little worried
