    I'd go with whatever your regular US shoe (not sneaker) size is.

    Are you ordering from Zappos? Because they are really good about returns and they have a ton of Purcell styles, now that I look, I might have to buy a pair myself.

    first post. i find that the leather purcells run SMALLER than my canvass chucks. i have never tried on canvass purcells, nor leather chuck taylors. just thought i'd add to the uncertainty. [​IMG] EDITED for clarity.

    They are about the same length as Chucks, but they feel narrower, so if you have wide feet (D or wider) I would order 1/2 size larger than Chucks.

    edit: hello denimdestroyed... welcome!

    ah, I suspected as much, Tangerine. I don't have wide feet, but my toes like to fan out a bit.

    Thx for the welcome! [​IMG]
