    Stevent - no idea on my Brannock sizing, but in Viberg measurements (as advised by Morgan after looking at my foot tracing), I am a 10.5 left foot/10 right foot in Viberg.

    So generally I go for a 10, and the left boot stretches to accommodate.

    I'm also a 10 in Alden Trubalance, 11 in Alden Plaza, 43 in Common Projects Achilles (but I like a *tight* fit with thin socks in all my trainers), 11/11.5 in Converse.

    Again, what works for me may not work for you; I wear different gauge socks for different boots/sneakers, and like a very defined feel for my shoes (others like a loose fit).

    Thanks Arizor.

    I wonder if I should go for size 8 or 8.5 for 110.

    For 2030 last I'm going with 8.5.

    I have 2040 lasted boots in size 8 and the fit is spot on.

    I'm 9D TTS and wear the following:

    Alden Trubalance Indy in 8.5D (amazing fit)
    Alden Plaza boots in 9D (fit is right but right foot can use a bit of room in width)
    Alden Barrie shoes in 9D (perfect)
    Carmina Rain and Inca lasts in 9D
    Common Projects Achilles in 42 (perfect fit)
    MMM GAT in 42 (a bit tight but not uncomfortable)

    Depends on how the length suits you Steel.

    The length for the 110 is noticeably shorter than the 2030 (or 2040, afaik).

    So, if your foot fits nicely into the length of the 2030 in a size 8.5, get an 8.5 in the 110, as if you go 8, your toes might be poking out the end.

    Steel,

    Have you confirmed this sizing works best for you? The reason I ask is that I am:

    I am 8.5D TTS

    8D Trubalance (a bit big and I wear an insole)
    8D Barrie (fits perfect)
    8.5D or 8E Plaza boots
    7.5UK Trickers 4497 (a bit big but good)
    7.5UK Tirckers 2161 (fits perfect)

    I had originally ordered my 2030 boots in a 7.5 as it matched my Trickers sizing and was a half size down from my Barrie sizing. After talking with Morgan and sending him my foot tracings he felt I should be going with the 8 as opposed to the 7.5

    I know defiantly from a lot of suggestions in this thread that for 2030 last it best to go with your Trubalance size or .5 size from my TTS. So for 2030 I'm 100% going with 8.5. Now I'm almost positive based on Arizor's finding about 110 being short that I'm also planning to go with 8.5.

    FYI a friend of mine has these boondockers in size 10 and he wears Alden indy (shell cordovan, if that makes any difference) in 10.5. I am told both pairs fit him well.

    I myself am between size 8 and 8.5 in alden (barrie last) and my 110 lasted vibergs are size 7.5. I put in some thin taco insoles and wear thin socks with them. There is only about 1/3 inch left between the tip and my toes. I dont "feel" they are too short, but my heels have complained loudly - I end up getting blisters on my heels after a 10 minute walk every time. The part where the leather is sewn together is killing me.

    My other oxfords (310, 160) are size 8, they are a lit bit long as my heels slip up a lit bit when I walk. But that does not bother me much and I can say I feel comfortable in them. Besides that, I can always wear thicker socks and use insoles with more cushion. They feel comfortable from day one but I am not sure if its the size or the last that fit me better.

    I have not worn my only pair of boots outside so I can't say much about the fit yet. I am usually size 9D (or 9C if I have such options) in nike, new balance etc. Size 8-8.5 in red wing / whites.

    It is hard to compare an individual's sizing to other as one may most likely have different shape of feet from other. However, I'd suggest you to go with 8 on 110 last if you are a US 8.5 on trubalance last because I'm almost a same size as yours in the shoes that you listed.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Here's some more insight after reading your response.

    I've dealt with Guy from Viberg a few times and his help and customer focus were always outstanding. This time it was no different. I've sent my feet trace and my observations from wearing my 2040 lasted boots in size 8 to him.

    Looks like you were right, I'm going with size 8 in Boondockes (110 last).

    Hmmm... Cinnamon looks so good. Sorta wish that I'd ordered a pair for myself.

    Those cinnamons might actually be my boots. Size 8.5. I really hope they fit.

    Thanks for posting the pictures.

    Those cinnamons do look good...kind of regretting not taking the plunge. Although hopefully we do a similar make-up with the copper task roughout. I would definitely be in for that.

    They do look good huh? The Black pair too. Still can't believe it had the fewest purchases, it's definitely my pick of the three. Such a nice simple boot.



    I'll try to post something tomorrow!



    No problem! Pretty sure they are yours then. I don't think we had multiple 8.5s going thorugh.
