    I tried them on there last week then thought I'd look around a little to see if I could beat their price.

    How's the sizing on these? I normally wear a 10 1/2, should I stick to that or go for an 11?

    I also wear a 10.5, I tried them on with a new insole I had purchased elsewhere and a pair of DarnTough medium weight hiking socks, plus a thin liner sock and a size 11 fit me well.

    My feet are nearly a half size different between right an left. I normally wear a 10 in most shoes but some brands allow a 9 1/2 to fit my longer foot.

    In these boots the 10 fit me well. I had some slop with the factory insoles, but once a set of Prosteps were in them they tightened up nicely. I tend to wear thicker socks these days and that helps make up room for my short foot.

    What I like so far about these boots is the hitch knob on the tounge. Due to my gate from a highschool wrestling injury every boot and shoe I have had since 1983 has ended up with the tounge twisted down beside my foot or ankle. The hitch knob allows you to tie the tounge off and - so far - keeps it where it needs to be.

    When boot shoping I looked at the Kenetreks at Sportsmans. The tops, to me, were as flippy floppy as a pair of high top tenner shoes. No ankle support at all. I have cheap "disposable" work boots with more ankle support. Since they are the same in store retail price as the Lowa's, but a much "lesser" boot IMO, I went for the Lowa's.
