/ Boot Sizes
I know that there will be comments like - go try it on, but I do not have the luxury of great choice where I live, so may have to purchase on-line.
I've got weird-shaped feet, so I have to try things before buying, but I've always ended up with boots the same size as my normal shoes (actually sometimes smaller, but that's because I have very wide feet and often have to buy normal shoes that are a bit big, whereas boots often come in a variety of widths, so I can get ones that fit properly).
Well worth traveling to an area that sells a wider selection of boots to try them. If the local Costwold Outdoors don't have what I want I wait until I'm next in the Lake District for a weekend. I would only buy boots online that I'd had before and knew fitted.
Thanks a lot.
Sound advice, but a long way from Africa. :-)
Very true - :-)
