I'm inclined to go that route as well, only one way to find out I guess...

That was John's advice--email him he will measure the sole length and ball width
Think it, be it.

Did you go tts?

FH and Rafa and anyone else needing sizing info:

Man, I totally spaced this until Tat asked me a question and I re-read an email from John, but in regards to sizing he said that you can basically follow a Brannock device in US sizes on these boots.

Still, email him and ask if you want to make sure, as mentioned he provided outsole length and width at the ball of the foot too.
Think it, be it.

Welp, I decided to go for the Lofgrens in black... only one pair in (what I hope is) my size left, I figured I better get them while I can.  Now comes the misery of waiting.
Wow, I forsee much boot porn when they arrive :). I'd suggest creating a dedicated thread for them so we can all admire their beauty. May they ship swiftly and fit perfectly :).

That's weird, I remember thinking that Vintage Engineer Boots sized down on his. Hmmm...

Thank you my brother, I will be suffering lightly until they arrive and hoping they fit, obviously.  I am guessing I could move them to a loving home if they don't, and that makes it easier to bear the wait.

Thanks SF, of course I will share pics, and if they don't fit, someone will get a bargain on some killers!

Yeah, I reread his review a minute ago and VEB said he's usually an 8 but went with a 7 on these.

Someone just ordered the last black size 11,5 @ Speedway shop so I guess I'll have to wait for the next run, bummer...

Sorry mate. That was me.  :-\ Not sure what size you normally go for but I'm usually a 13 or sometimes a 12 but these measured exactly the same as my pairs that fit at 13" wall to toe and 4 3/8" wide. If they don't work out for me I'd be happy to work something out with you if your interested.

Absolutely, you'll have first dibs if they don't.
