read back at my posts.. i never recommended anything to anyone. all i said was i wear a size 7 sneaker and went with a 7.5 boot, and many others had said the same thing about getting a bigger size boot than sneaker.
You were implying that Nike Boots run smaller then Nike sneakers. But if you were to actually measure the interior of the boot, you would find that they are the same size. (length wise). I'm glad you found a good fitting boot though.
What I am trying to tell people is that the only way to get a proper fitting boot is to go to the store and try them on. If online is your only choice, you're shooting in the dark.
If I had bought all the boots I tried online, I probably would have spend $300 just on the return shipping costs.
