    I wear a size 9.5, but one of my feet is wider than the other - so I got a size 10 and they fit fine. Break-in was quick, as I wear them often.

    Is that your brannock size? If so, go for size 11.

    The RW people told me to stay true to size due to the width. Friend of mine who is regular downsized and suggested the same. Bit "confused" to say the least. Are you wide as well?

    Yeah, I'm 9.5EE on brannock, and I wear size 9 on IRs, Beckmans, round and moc toes. IRs and GTs are long and narrow, but they're a bit wider compared to the 875s. Size 9.5 for me will like clown shoes, and my height is 5' 8" medium (167 lbs) built.

    My personal sizing is:
    9 on Red Wings, Clarks dessert boots, Chuck Taylors and Wolverine 1Ks.
    10 on Nikes, NBs, Asics and Adidas running and Vans as well
    9EE/EEE on Allen Edmonds Park Avnues and Mcallisters
    10 on Merrell Moab Ventilaors and Keen hiking shoes

    Belleville TR Chrome Hot Weather Side Zip. Simply the best boots I've ever bought for a work boot. They're basically unlined and the BREATHE. It's a tactical/LEO boot in black, but they look nice. Amazingly they require almost ZERO break-in. I honestly can't say I've ever had another 8" boot which didn't require any break-in at all. And they're not tennis shoe-eey either. Good solid support. Belleville is one of the suppliers to the US military, though you don't really hear much about them. I have to say, I'm impressed!

    The other thing I love about these boots is because they're hot weather boots they actually breathe. My feet run hot 100% of the time (unless it's like -25F or colder) and hot boots drive me nuts. I know this is weird, but hot feet for me means hot under the collar too; cool feet and I'm cool. I can literally feel even the slightest breeze coming through these boots which is awesome.

    I'm only about 3 weeks into them so we'll see how they wear, but so far they've been in use 7 days / wk. since arriving. I really like 'em!!

    I just wish they came in a color other than black, but I'll deal with it for the comfort.

    A pair of Rockys that have been beat to hell and back, and are now serving as my field boots, as the right one has a rip on the side from C wire, and they both have stains and barely any sole left. Most comfortable pair of combat boots I have though, by far.
