You're going to want your boots to fit tight. Your street shoe size might not be a good reference because of brand/style differences. You don't want your foot to be slipping in your boot, but you don't want them to be cutting of your blood circulation either. When you try them on, your toes should touch the end of the boot. In my case, the vapens I got were 1/2 of a size SMALLER than my normal shoes. They do pack out a half inch or so, and it shouldn't take too long for you to break them in. I'm thinking that if you get a size larger, they might pack out too much, and then your foot might start slipping. Good luck, I hope this helps.

In my earlier post, I said I'm a size 11. I change between 10.5 and 11.
