Fact: No two pair of feet are the same. Fact: Your left foot and right foot are not the same size or width. Fact: Your feet swell and get bigger during the average work day. What fits in the morning will not necessarily fit
the same when you get off work. Fact: No two work boot brands are made the same...from the same shoe lasts. Fact: We all want our work boots to fit PERFECTLY. I know I do. Fact: The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 1,500 miles over a year. Fact: The human foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles.
Fact: Finding perfect fitting work boots is a tricky thing and nearly impossible to absolutely guarantee...no matter how good a "shoe salesman." Always consider these qualities for making a smart work boot purchase (in order):
FIT > COMFORT > SAFETY FEATURES > CRAFTSMANSHIP > PRICE
Fact: 90% of TheBootPro customer exchanges are for work boots a half-size down from the size requested in the original order. We offer several suggestions to help you find the best fit.
Sizing Option 1: Check Your Closet (or truck)
If unsure about what to order, this is always the best place to start. The work boot size and width you have worn in the past is always a good indicator of the what you should order at TheBootPro.
Your feet change during your lifetime. To make sure that you get the best possible fit we suggest you follow the simple sizing directions below to help you select your size and width. The measurements used are industry standards.
Place a piece of blank paper on a hard floor.
Stand on the paper wearing a sock of medium thickness.
Holding a pencil vertically (90º), place a mark at the end of your heel.
Place another mark at the tip of your longest toe
To find your size, measure the heel-to-toe mark and use the inch-to-size table. For example, if you are a man and your foot measures 10 1/4" long, you will wear a U.S. size 9 shoe.
If your measurements are between two sizes, or you find one foot's measurement larger than the other, always move up to the larger size.
A selection of our boots are available in smaller sizes. These smaller "men's" sizes accomodate our female customers. Use the size conversion chart to determine the correct size to order a women's footwear.
Example: For a women's size 6, order men's size 4
Note: Width sizes vary in description from boot to boot. Use this width conversion to help you better understand the best width (for men) to order:
To help our customers with their online boot order BootPro Solutions has created a printable shoe sizer chart very similar to the ones used in stores.
Just print off and use this shoe sizer to verify your foot size. When you click the 'PRINT' function in your browser, make sure you do not let your printer resize the page to fit your paper. In your 'PRINT SETTING' box, there is usually a function called 'PAGE SCALING'. Make sure that it is set to 'NONE' before printing. This will ensure that your printout will be an accurate size. Inches are also marked along the side of the chart to insure the scaling is correct.
Note: This is only a rough guide to help you determine your shoe size. Trying on shoes is always the best way to get the best fit. Buying your shoes from thebootpro.com is always the best way to get the best price (unabashed plug).

A shoe last is the solid form (wooden or manmade) around which a shoe is molded during construction. There is a unique shoe last for every style and every size made for that style. Which means that for our style #814-4550 there are 47 shoe lasts required.
A shoe last represents the design, shape, height, toe shape and volume of a shoe. And, most importantly, the anatomical information of the human foot.
All footwear manufacturers use different shoe lasts. Therefore, no two pair of shoes, in the same style and size, will fit and feel exactly the same.
