following up!i just received my thursday captain boots. they look and feel great (smell a bit plastic tho). unfortunately, i didn't take my right size. they suggest my dress shoe size but the boot feels spacious.
i've never owned boots before - how should i properly size them? should they fit similar to dress shoes? if so, then i need to size down 1 or even 1.5 from what i purchased.
my rule of thumb is they should fit in a way where my toes don't pinch and aren't excessively roomy at the toes. Try it with the type of socks you'd be wearing them with, and see how they feel. I'm a 9.5E. Got a pair of 9.5 diplomats seconds. Initially, I thought they were too tight (i used my dress shoe size), but after wearing them around the house, they actually fit fine it seems. Still testing them out.following up!
