I really want to get Belleville 880's but I am thoroughly confused about which size to get. I'm a 10.5" D width in shoe size. I've never owned boots other than Doc Martins. I'm also looking at boot socks that are somewhere between thick and thin.
These are some of the things I've been reading either in reviews or web sites in general.
At militaryboots.com, it says the following on all Belleville boots pages...
Note: Belleville boots tend to run a full size too large. We recommend ordering a full size down. This means if you wear a size 10, you should order a size 9
Question: are they going by boot size or shoe size, as for the sizing?
Answer: They say shoe, I went 1/2 size larger than I normally wear. I typically wear 11's but the boots are 11.5 and fit comfortably.
**Belleville Boots Run About 1/2 to 1 Full Size Large
If anyone who owns these boots (either 700, 770, 800, 880) or has an experienced opinion, tell me how they chose the size they did and how they fitted, that would be great. Thanks!
