    Danner assumes that you wear those boots to work and hiking where you will be wearing thick socks. In this case go True to size or size down 1 from brannock if narrow feet. Def size down 1 if you are going to be wearing them with thinner (regular) socks

    It's a toss-up between 9.5 E and 10D

    i'm planning to wear it with both regular and thick sock 50/50 time

    i'm in non-city place now so can't measure it with brannock. i have only a drawing of my foor - it measures 285mm.

    new balances insoles are the ones that can be taken out measure 290mm

    i'm very surprised cause was expecting opinions like 10 or 10.5 but not less!

    You can buy two mountain lights for what you pay for a pair of viberg!

    le kraken, err for the larger size in that case. tight boots is not good for you

    the custom viberg makeups are 2x the price of the mountain lights. the standard hiker 66 is 440

    That is good advise go TTS.

    I wear 11.5 in almost all my shoes/boots. I went with one half size down to an 11 in the Danner Stumptown, They were too small, 11.5 would have fit just fine.

    le_kraken - go true to size on danner mountain lights. Seriously - why wouldn't you be wearing your smartwools with those? Get the stumptown mountain light over the II, leather is nicer.

    from one pint i would fell more comfortable ordering a TTS 10.5

    BUT

    ebay seller who was helping me with sizing information says insole measures ~290mm and the outsole is 330mm.

    where is 40mm difference?! is it thick leather? or measurement is wrong? 330mm for 10.5US is way to much i think.

    i'm using all the sources cause i need these boots fast and with no mistake, sorry if i bother you guys

    FWIW, here's my sizing breakdown.

    i wear 11 in most sneakers: Nike, adidas Rod Lavers/Stan Smiths, etc.
    I wear 10.5 in Clark's desert boots.
    I wear a 10 in Red Wing.

    I went with 10 in the Danners. Chuck the insole things that come w/ them. They're worthless. Buy some Superfeet (green or blue) and you'll be golden. Your Achilles area may be sore for the first 12-15 wearings, depending on fit, but that softens up.

    I wear
    6.5 Daytons ( :crackup: )
    7.5 F+B 745,
    7.5 Chucks,
    8.5 Nike Runners,
    8 Nike/Keds sneakers
    7~7.5 dress shoes
    and went with 8 E Danners. It definitely fits big when worn with thin socks but I would never wear it with think socks anyways so I guess it doesn't matter. When worn with proper gear, fits and feels great.

    As for leather its a thick single leather that covers the whole boot. Because of its thickness some it will hurt your feet. Could be your Achilles area and for me it was toe joint area. Very tough, but prone to scratch ( I don't know maybe because I wore them to Yellowsone/ Moab etc. etc. ?). The deciding factor for picking MLII for me was the contrasting stitch of MLII, which I did not like for when I oil them the stitch will stain.. The color tone is also a bit different, with MLII being darker, but the toughness is the same IMO

    I just tried on some Mountain Lights at a Levi's store of all places and I would recommend people to go with their true size. I wear a 10.5 or 11 in Nike's and my true measured size is 10.5. I tried on a 10 and it fits ok with a medium thickness sock. So I would go with that size if I used the shoes for walking around town. However, there are much better looking boots for casual wear, these boots make you look like a mammoth. I would most definitely hike in these boots, in fact, that is what they are made for. That being said, when walking downhill on a hike, your toes are going to get pushed forward and the hardy leather construction on these boots will hurt after a while if your toes keep jamming into them, especially if you are wearing a thicker sock. In 10, that would have definitely happened since I only have about a half inch of space in the front.

    I would recommend getting your true measure size, they will be very comfortable and roomy with medium to heavy socks and won't beat up ur toes if you go hiking with them.

    i'm an 11.5. I wear an 11E on the alden trubalance last. When trying on the Mountain Light, the 11.5EE is the one that worked for me. 11 was too narrow
