thought you were wearing thin socks for dress shoes  ;D
yes, but I don't really want to take different socks for the office each day ;D
I want to go to the office with boots and then jump to the office shoes. changing the socks in the office going to be too much for me, I am too old for this sh#t  :D

I am going to wait for few more experts(who has engineer boots) opinion based on my description  ::) and then make a decision.
(any comments guys? @neph93, @Appfaff, @den1mhead, @marlin)

tried them once again, definitely far to big for me.
even at the evening, when the foot is slightly bigger it still feel too big for me.
I would send it back for exchange for 9.5D, think it would be best decision.  8) even thought I want to wear them really much...

and probably it still not the best weather for Engineers in my town yet... still have some gap in time..

I'am not a expert at all, but here are my thoughts.

I ordered the boot in 9,5 at first, but when I tryed it on my first thought was, they are to big. Since I wanted the best fitting size, I ordered the 9 as well and compared them side by side. My first feeling proofed to be right, because I ended with the 9.

With the 9,5 I slipped just to much at the heel, it just didn't feel right. Can't explain it better than that, sorry!

The 9 had still minor play in the heel, but this got regulated by the worn in midsole, which gets the boot a bit smaller afterwards.

My tip, if you want to get it right, order the next smaller size and compare them side by side.

@Bulatik85 sounds like you may need to go down a size. Glad you like them though. They look tremendous.

@neph93 do you mean a full size down? I am currently planning to go half-size down.

@Bulatik85 Sorry, for being unclear, I don't mean a whole size. Half a size is probably the right move.

@neph93 thank you.
send back the 10D, going to try 9.5D...
making online footware shopping is always a lottery before you get to know the needed last and size.
but it is always better to be paitient and not to make fast decisions.

It’s not easy at all, no. But with a little patience it tends to work out.

ordered 9.5D, don't want to waste time for return shipment.  >:(
had to ask my friend to make the order, since the taxfree limit is 1000EUR per month. if I am buying something over the limit I have to pay +20% tax...  :o but not a big problem to organize workaround.

@Bulatik85
I am brand new to engineer boots and as a result have no helpful feedback to offer at this point
