Welcome to the club! I just bought the same boots but US9. I have 275 MP feet, and this is 9.5 recommended. This is harsh! But I believe that heat mold is the solution. Moreover, my wife have it too, but women's design and she got size as described in size chart - 255 MP is women's 9 for her foot. But she got a beautiful blue nails for her big toes anyway.

What is your size in MP?
