    Dayton doesn't strike me as a terribly online company. If your CC has been charged just chill. Come to think of it, nobody post until you get your damn boots [​IMG]

    This might be of help to some others who might want to order before the sale ends and are still confused over the sizing issue just like me. I found references made to Paul Smith boots when sizing w+h boots on few other threads and since I was out to get PS Cesar tdy, i thought i might just give a little info about how it turned out. I ended up fitting well(snug) on a uk8/us9/42 pair. 1/2 a size up would have been gd for a little toe room. uk9 caused some heel slip.

    Meso, i was reading the PS thread and found that you fit a 9UK in Cesar. What size did you get for your Dayton? I was told a 9.5EE.

    Brannock -11
    Vans 10.5
    Heel to toe -11inches
    Adidas/Nike - 11.5/11

    Is the general consensus that Red Wing Gentleman Traveler size = Dayton Service boot size?

    Dayton advised size down 1 from red wings.

    Considering many on this forum already size down 1/2 to 1 size for their GTs, I'm not sure if that's sound advice here. I'd say it's more accurate for some of the more true to size Red Wing models though. I wear my 1907s in my true dress shoe size of 11.5D and they fit pretty close to my 10.5D Dayton cap toe boots (can't say how those compare to the service boots though).

    Just saying what Dayton themselves said.
    The math adds up, at least to my mind.
    Anyhow. I'll report back when they arrive.

    I'm probably a natural size 9. I usually wear 41 42 for CPs. My foot length measures around 10.3 inches so they probably going to give me a 8. The people from dayton will take care of you if you just measure your foot. Just outline your foot and measure. Set!

    Btw anyone know when to oil boots in general? Got the OK oil along with the boot.

    I'm wondering this myself, as I already had the brown W+H collab for a good few months now. I'm also really hesitant to oil it because I don't want to darken the leather.

    I was a 11- brannock. The told me 9.5EE. Without brannock info with just the measurements they gave me 8.5EE.

    Might be a dumb question...for those buying the charcoal nubuck version, are you going to apply anything on the boots to protect the leather?
