I measure a 9.5 E (US) shoe size. I'm wondering if these boots would allow for that kind of volume? Would I need to upsize to a 10/10.5? or would the width just be a killer irrespective?
To answer my own question: The boots are quite accommodating for high volume feet. I tried going with a larger size to start and found I had heel slide, but after about a week in a 9.5 (my street size) i found that the fit was spot on. Until they were broke in I had a little toe bang on descents, but, again, once they broke in, that was gone. If I could change one thing about these boots: Zoned lacing. Otherwise, so far so great!
Edit: After a few months and a few hikes, i'm impressed all to heck with these. I took them wading on my last trip (waist deep) and they drained and dried rather quickly. Once I broke them in, there's been no blister issues or foot fatigue(rare given how wide my feet are). Really a solid buy in my opinion.
