First of all, I am french and finding this pair of shoe was very difficult, especially for this range of price and the quality showed. So I decided to order this pair but the question about the size was a big issue. I am usually 42 in Europe (France) and sometimes 41.5 abroad (in Australia I found a perfectly fine 41.5 pair of shcoe). So I've checked the size chart of oversotck and they say 42 => 8 in US So I ordered a 9 (supposed to be a 43) so it is supposed to be the good match. But after looking on diffrerent websites (in the usatourist.com website as well) they say that 9 Us is 42 Europe. so i really don't know what size will be the boots!!! Do you understand my fears??!!! the boots should not be that long to come at my place, so I am very excited and also very scary... Will let you know about this size issue, espacially with this huge debate about the sizing of the Bearpaw boots. Could be interesting for European customers.
