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.
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!

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
