    Hmm... according to this thread that particular shoe fits a little big/wide, so it sounds maybe like a US 11 D...?
    12 3/16 inches is too short for a US11. A typical US11 boot is about 12 3/4. Go trace both your feet on paper with the pencil kept vertical, if both are under 10.75" (and over 10") in length and under 4" in width at the widest point they will probably fit.

    It's probably UK sized.

    # Marked Size: 10E, as pictured
    # Outer Sole Length: 12 3/16 inches
    # Insole Length: 11 7/8 inches
    # Outer Sole Width: 4.25 inches

    That's about a 10.5 US C.


    You're good. Are you just really close to that and know your own size well or do you work with footwear?

    Thanks. I am a US11E. I had to learn all this because I was buying shoes on the internet and started landing ones that didn't fit. Trying to size yourself to a shoe you can't touch until you buy it is difficult; both of your feet could be differently sized by a wide margin, not to mention you're taking a two dimensional reading on what is ultimately a three dimensional problem. Depending on the last, the materials and the shape of the shoe it still may not fit. My advice will give you nothing more than a ballpark unfortunately. The trace method is a hack, you should really get to a footwear store and stand on a brannock device to get the measurements for your arch and better figures for the rest. Even then those figures are only good for narrowing down what your size is as all shoes are different and will not fit the same.. I think all shoes are a compromise unless you have unusually D sized uniform feet or you go bespoke.

    Oh and there's a contradiction going on in the width if it's stamped an E but measured at 4.25. edit: Photoshopping the sole photo to 12 3/16th inches makes the width 4.264 inches wide, so their measurements are probably pretty close. The shoe is slightly off axis in the photo though. I'd have to stage my boot flush and then as this one is pictured to get a percentage of error, if it's even 5% then the boot rapidly becomes a D at 4.477 inches. Ask the seller to remeasure it if you could. [​IMG]

    UK E width is narrow... the US equivalent is C width... 10.5 C is the correct US size

    Love how he admits he's worn it 10 times but lists it as NWOT [​IMG]

    Not Worn Often Though?

    Great self-promotion and reserve. I think he admitted to wanting to make money off of this on sufu and maybe here. don't really see why you can't pass off a great deal.
