They're just black waxed laces from Viberg. Wasn't a huge fan of the yellow nylon laces.

This is my first pair of boots and I really love them.  The problem is, I think they might be a half size too big but, I am not sure as I am new to boots.  I was wondering opinons?  When laced up its not bad, no real heal slip and I am wearing thin socks.  Below is a pic of of where my big toe ends...appreciate any feedback.

with my heel all they way to the back of the boot:


Standing with where my foot natural falls within the boot:

I am by no means an expert on sizing footwear, but that seems like way too much room to me.

@seanocono I appreciate the input.  That was with my heel as far back as it goes (if that makes any difference).  Check the second picture that is with me standing and the boot laced.  It feels pretty decent but, just not sure if a boot should fit more snug than what i have or not.

The second pic looks much better, but I think preference has a lot to do with it.

I've always worn my boots snug, out of necessity, so your room looks excessive.

It's entirely possible that I am wearing my boots "wrong," so please take my opinion with a handful of salt.

I'm sure others can provide more constructive opinions. I probably shouldn't have commented.

Better a tad too big - than too small

My (both pair) of Wescos are also a half size bigger than my 'usual size ... still - the fit and the feeling is very comfy.  (I walked hundreds of miles with them since months - absolutely no problems)

But - that's my own opinion / experience!

My big toe ends at the red line - for comparison

mine fits about the same as yours. I could have sized down 1/2 a size, but have not had an issue in the 100's of KMs I've walked in them, and as soon as they are laced up forget about the size at all

Thanks guys, yea now that I have them laced and on, not even sure I could have gone down a half size.  They fit pretty good and with the shape of my foot i really only have about 1/4 size to play with, I reckon a 1/2 might be too much.  They are a beautiful pair of boots and really happy with how they look.

Hope to add more in the future...looking forward to seeing the other colorways giles has instore.

We always recommend you have about a thumbs width in front of your big toe. With the Motor Patrol last (used on the Foot Patrol) your toes should never be all of the way to the front of your boot. The toe shape extends a little longer than our round toe shoe lasts would. If you have minimal to no heel lift, and they are secure on your feet when laced up (not slipping around while you walk) I would think you are just fine.

Great info and duly noted for future purchases.  No heel lift and fit is fine...just need to break them in a bit :)
