Each boot manufacturer and distributor has certain guide lines they follow when producing a pair of cowboy boots. some may run large, some small and some are exact to street shoe sizing. Nocona, Lucchese, and Black Jack, are custom made boot companies and with that stated, can run very close to your normal street shoe size. As a general rule when ordering cowboy boots, you would subtract 1/2 size from your regular street shoe size to get a general fit for a pair of boots, this is done unless indicated that boots run small or large. If unsure ask the call center to check out if these boots are running close to street shoe size or if you would need to order an alternate size.
