    You got that right. All my life, before I started wearing real shoes, I just sized up to an 11 or 11.5D

    Then, I found out I am actually a 10EE.

    So, there you have it.

    I am thinking 804 in UK 9.5 "G" fitting.

    I sized down .5 from rain to 804. I found 804 similar in width, and the instep about the same, possibly more generous. Also the 804 is definetely longer. Probably 4mm or so in the same sizing.

    Because I need the width in the forefront.

    I have average instep with wide forefront.

    Alden Aberdeen fit like a glove in 10EE or 10.5E.

    EE is better.

    I know that boots are quite a bit more forgiving in general.

    Better to be a bit bigger than smaller is what I mean.

    I don't have the shoes with me but basing on memory 804 is wider in the toe and narrower in the heel vs rain. 804 is longer overall but I don't feel much difference in terms of fit length wise so i am guessing the heel to ball should be similar. I would not be able to size down on 804 vs rain but i have a wide forefoot.

    Might be best to ask Skoaktiebolaget guys.

    Question. If I take a UK 9.5 Wide in Rain, would you recommend the same size in 804?

    Lengthwise i would take the same size. Width wise depends on your feet and preference (snug, loose).

    I follow one size difference for uk vs us sizing.

    Is the 804 more like the Detroit in overall proportions? I guess is my next question...
