    Posted: Oct/18/2008 at 9:28pm
I am looking for some boots that will actually fit my feet, my parents bought me some size 12 boots thinking i would grow into them, but 2 years later here i am with huge boots...so i am looking for anything in the 10-11 range, they dont need to be free but im kinda short on cash right now, anybody got anything?

figure out your real size first.

here is the best place to start.  go to a wall that goes directly into the floor (no gaps or trim or anything), preferably hardwood.  put your heel against the wall with your foot as straight out as you can get it.  put all your weight on that foot and then mark the furthest point your toes reach (your big toe most likely).  then, measure that distance in centimeters, take 18 from that number, and thats the best place to start for your boot size.  its not definite, but i can almost guarantee you your size isnt any bigger than that.

example: my feet are exactly 27CM long.  27-18=9, and that runs true for me, even though i usually take 8.5s because i ride a lot so they pack out more.

youll most likely be surprised with the size you come up with.  after this, go into a shop and try on all the boots you can in that size.  put your foot in, lace them up tight, kick your heel back and bend your leg.. your toe should be touching the end, but not pushing.  that + being comfortable all-around (width, arch, etc) = a good fitting boot.  then heat mold them and youll be good to go.



growing into boots is something you should never do.  its really hard for parents to know that, though, so never let them (or anyone) buy you boots without you trying them on first

Yeah, you need to figure out your real boot size first.
I wear a size 10 shoe but 7.5 - 8 boot.
After that, just do what Spenser said.
Try on as many boots as you can.
