    CAboots sizing question

    I've read a few of the past posts and people have said that the sizing is off a little. I wear a 11.5 in most shoes but according to the sizing chart they use, they recommend i get a 9 to 9.5. That sounds awfully small to me considering the size shoe i normally wear. When I called and asked them the size, they said go with a 9 or 9.5. I told them i have a narrow foot and a high arch to which they replied "you have a odd shaped foot and you'll need to send us your measurements". So can anybody tell me what size i should order? i'm confused now and they aren't really helping me out. Thanks, Bert

    All I know is that they run large.

    so they might be right then by saying i should order a 9.5. i'm thinking if they run big that i should order a 10. anybody wanna weigh in on this?

    They run big. I wear a size 14, but I can get away with a size 12 from CA Boots. Check out this thread:

    The topic came up there.

    i have the same size caboots that i wear for regular shoes... but i have 2" internal lifts in the boots to give me some extra height. i don't imagine that would have worked out so well if the shoes weren't a bit big.

    can you send them back if they don't fit? if so, all you lose is time.

    Or post a "for sale" thread in the Cargo Hold.
    I'm sure somebody here would definitely be looking for a pair.

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    I think mine are 9.5 and I normally wear 10-10.5. I would say they run about a size bigger

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    I normally wear a size 10 and that's what I had for my first pair of CA Boots and they were a tad big! My second pair I ordered a 9.5 and they fit perfect! So I would say go a "HALF SIZE" smaller and you should be good to go!

    I hope that they are not too small because you do not want to mess around when it comes to your feet.

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    I wear a size 14 tennis shoe and I could fit into a pair of 12.5 from CA Boots. I think they run big, or else my feet just shrunk so that I wouldn't feel like I wasted my money.

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    I just got my CAboots yesterday... I normally wear a size 9.5. I ordered my boots in 8.5... they fit perfectly. I hope this helps!

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    got my CAboots today...and they're too small...they were right, i should've ordered the 9.5. as crazy small as that seems, i guess that's what i wear in their boot. so i'm gonna exchange them for the right size. so for me, i have to order 2 sizes smaller. weird. oh well, thanks for the input guys.

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    You ordered a size 10, they were too small; so you're going to order a size 9.5? That doesn't make sense.

    Phil

    For the record, I wear a 13, I ordered a 12 and they fit just fine ( although without a boba Fett Costume to go with them they look silly on me)

    Ok I did not want to start a new thread and my question does have to do with caboots and sizing I guess lol so here it goes.

    I am looking for shoe lifts I was for my caboots I got a size 7 and I fit into a mens size 6 so I have lots of room to work with so why not add to my height right lol. Any one know or requemend a brand ect.

    Re: CAboots sizing question

    I have a pair of the Caboots that are a little too big for me. I would love to do an even exchange if anyone has boots too small for them. Unfortunatley, the size of my boots from some reason is blacked out. However the measurements on the underside are as follows:

    11.5" long on the bottom
    3" wide at narrowest part
    4" wide at widest part

    See my attached pictures. I normally wear a size 9 shoe and since these boots run about one size larger I would like a size 8 boot. Mine are in excellent condition and I would expect the same in return. They do not have the spikes.
