You'd recommend 1/2 size up from your 4497/2298 boot size for 2298 Bourtons? I imagine most people are fine taking the same size as their 4497 and 2298 boots.. Just for me I'd probably need an insole or tongue pads to take the same size.I think that’s contrary to advice I’d give but as I’ve said to you your feet are your feet so what works for you but generally I’d suggest half up if anything. Probably why lots of DR pairs appear on Grailed! ?
I'm going to assume you're referring to 1/2 size up compared to 4444 Bourtons. My post may not have been clear.
