    generally m.a+ are true to size, though there's some wiggle room in models with bigger toe-boxes, if you're talking about the bison leather backzips they fit dead-on true to size though.

    Thanks for the info - TTS to 1/2 size large would be perfect for me.
    See photo - I think so? My knowledge of shoe construction is spotty at best.
    Eva Gentry - they're a 39.

    I have found that it varies. I have the boots Brad posted above in 43 and the boots that you posted (but in calf not that buffalo? leather) in 42. The fit is almost identical. I am selling one pair of ma+ boots in 43 because they are a bit big on me.

    I don't know what happens once you size down to 39 though. PM me if you want more info.

    That is a great price for those boots.

    That's an insane price for those boots, but it makes sense I suppose since they're in women's sizing and footwear's never been the best seller for m.a+ womens' at store-front. (at least not when I was selling it).

    Pretty much exactly my experience.

    Those bison leather backzips fit TTS (no question). I tried on a 41, a 43, and my actual size (42) before committing.

    However, my tall staple boots (same as Brad posted above, except in Guidi cow leather in beautiful petrol color) are in a 42 and I easily could have sized down to a 41 because of how voluminous the toe-box is.

    That last pair is incredible - the classic S23M shape, the bronze hint coming through under the beautifully shiny black, the colour and textural contrast with the white cotton laces - everything is perfect...
