I do yet have my boots or low quarters. I have been trying to find a place to buy them but have visited numerous stores that said they have them when I call, but later turn out not to have them. Regardless, there are no excuses. My question is really how accurate boot sizes run in comparison to the measurements taken by the "foot scale" everyone sees around the shoe department. After reading through some of the threads, I've noticed that it can be 1-2 sizes smaller than a pair of running shoes. For the candidates reporting on R-Day, how far off was your boot size from your running shoe size? And does anyone have any experience with the boot size in comparison to the traditional "foot scale" ? What about the difference in low quarters? Has anyone bought their boots/low quarters online? If so, do you recall where you got them from? Thank for your help.
