Belleville Boot Sizing Fit Information
As an Authorized Belleville Boot dealer, we want to be sure you get the boot you want in the size you need. The information below is to help you determine the correct size before purchasing. Exchanges and returns are welcome.
All sizing advice is based on knowing what size your foot measures on a "Brannock" device (the metal foot measuring device in stores), we STRONGLY urge customers to have their foot measured to ensure proper fit and avoid ordering the wrong size. Even with the best advice and right measurements, each person's foot is different, below are RECOMMENDATIONS only we cannot promise it holds true for everyone but we do find it works for MOST
Hot Weather boots
Run large (i.e. loose) so we tell people to order down a half size (if you measure a size 10 on the Brannock device we suggest you order a size 9.5)
MiniMil™ and MiniMil Transition™ (TR101, TR102, TR103, TR111 & TR115) hot weather boots
This hot weather boot is an exception to the above rule. Because of the toe box to allow for the wider spread of toes that is called for in minimalist foot wear this boot style even though it is hot weather tends to run SMALL/SHORT. So we suggest you order at least a half size up. (If you measure a size 10 on the Brannock device then we would tell you to order at least a 10.5; some people have found it necessary to go up a full size and order an 11)
Wet Weather boots (waterproof but no insulation)
Run 'true to size' this means order the size you measure on the Brannock device (If you measure a size 10 on the Brannock device order a sizes 10)
Cold Weather Insulated boot (waterproof and insulation for cold weather)
Tend to run small (i.e. snug) so we suggest you order up a have size (if you measure a size 10 on the Brannock device we suggest you order a 10.5)
Sizing for Women
All the above is based on a men's sized boot, so now we need to take into account how a female orders. When a female orders a male boot first as with all sizing you need to have your foot measured on a FEMALE Brannock device; they that size and go DOWN TWO FULL SIZES to determine your male size. Once you know your 'men's size' apply the above rules by boot type.
As an example… if you measure a size 085R on a Female Brannock Device, you go down two sizes and your men’s size is a 065R. When ordering a pair of MiniMil's follow the advice as stated above for that boot ordered up a half size getting the size 070R.
