    No offense intended but it seems like the same sizing questions keep popping up again and again - they are answered several times and not far back. I could really care less but give Fok a break.

    Yeah, I know, sorry to be a :foo:. But for a full-price one-off preorder for a boot I've never tried (and won't have a chance to try on) that's over $700 you can understand there's a little anxiety. I've read the thread but haven't seen any exact comps.

    My question about UK vs. US sizing on the order page still stands, tho.

    To be fair, all the talk of UK and US sizing and sizing up and down is a bit confusing. So maybe we should throw that talk out the window and say the following (please correct if I'm wrong):

    Go to a store that sells Aldens and try on the Indy boot, which is on the Trubalance last. Make a note of the size that fits best. It will typically be the size that is 1/2 size smaller than your usual U.S. size. This is your size in the Viberg 2045 last, and you should order that size on the Styleforummarket site.

    To my understanding, the order page is in US sizes, but viberg's boots fits big, so people have compared it to UK sizes, hence all the posts saying it's UK. I wear a 9USD in Allen Edmonds shoes, and a 8.5USD in LL bean's Katahdin's engineer boot (which fits big). I will be ordering this boot in 8.5 on their order website.

    The Katahdin, I believe, sizes similarly to Alden's TruBalance last, so this fits in with @Ambulance Chaser 's suggestion.

    1) The sizes are as marked by Viberg. They correspond pretty well with UK sizing.

    2) I don't have any Quoddy, Allen Edmonds or Chippewa boots, so someone else may be of more help. I wear a size 9.5 in the Trickers 4497 last, and in the Church's sahara. I am also a 9.5 in the Viberg lasts. I am also typically a Euro 43-43.5. Maybe someone with direct experience with those other brands can chime in here.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    ^^Thanks, Fok. Sounds like I'm a 9, given that I typically take 42.5 in euro sizes (and 43s are typically too large).

    Rarely have I been so excited about spending $750. I think the last time was when I ordered from ToJ...:slayer:

    Cheers,
    Peter

    We both wear 42.5 EU, youre going size 9 on this one and I'm going size 8.5....lol it's almost like playing russian roulette, too bad we can't try them on before eh...I was torn between 8.5 and 9, but I'm going to settle on the 8.5 because the 2045 last fits wide, E wide...

    Perfect thanks a bunch, that confirms it for me....8.5 it is! It's so confusing because I go on size conversion charts (EU/UK/US sizes) on google search, and all the charts are different depending on the website...

    You should probably be fine, and if not, it may be within the margin of "sock error."

    I also wear EU42.5 (US9.5D) and am going with size 9, which is my Alden Trubalance size. With a boot, better to go a little big rather than a little small. You'll be wearing it with thicker socks, and there are more eyelets to lace up and keep your foot secure.

    Fok, will this MTO boot have any StyleForum logo stamped on the insole or anything that will make it unique to SF?
