Western Boot Fitting Guide

Finding the Proper Size:

  1. We recommend choosing your normal or most common size, as we know shoe sizes can vary slightly from company to company.
  2. Everyone tends to have one foot slightly larger than the other. If you find your feet are drastically different you’ll want to go with the size that fits the larger foot.
  3. If you need a wide width and none are available you can go up a ½ size, as the added length tends to increase width as well.

You will find men’s standard width labeled as “D”, and wide widths labeled as either “EE” or “EW”.

You will find women’s standard widths labeled as either  “B” or “M”, and wide widths labeled as either “C” or “W”.

Ensuring the Proper Fit:

Once you’ve found the right size you’ll want to find the proper fit, which is slightly different than finding the correct fit in a pair of shoes. To see if your boots fit properly you’ll need to be standing and wearing both boots, looking for the following.

  1. New boots should feel snug all over – ball of the foot and across the instep (top of the foot). However, there should be a bit of slippage in the heel, up and down as you walk around – approximately a ½-inch. This slippage is normal and will disappear as the sole and leather around the toe box begins to flex and naturally move with your foot.
  2. With a pair of boots you want to make sure that the ball of your foot sits at the widest part of the sole of the boot. This will ensure that the boots flexes properly as you walk and allow for an overall correct feel. Toes will typically sit back about a thumb to a thumb-and-a-half width from the end of the boot.
