I just don't think sizing up is a good idea. If you can order a pair in both sizes, do it and keep the size that fits. Make sure you can return the pair that doesn't fit.

It'd be great of the Union's site had actual measurements that actually could be used to give people a better idea of how they might fit their boot, not just some arbitrary boot size, so they don't have to waste their time.

You neglect the fact that boots do not come in standard sizes. Some are slimmer, some are fatter. Some have a wider sole, some don't..

OP, if this is of any help I have the Rosa in medium (size 8 boot, 32 Lashed) and took some measurements for you.

These are all inside measurements of course. If the conversion from inches to cm is wrong, that's on Google, not me.

Widths:
-From the inserts of toe strap: 4 1/2 inches (11.43 cm)
-Most narrow part: 4 1/8 inches (10.48 cm)
-Heel inside highback: 3 7/8 inches (9.84 cm)

Lengths:
Heel loop and gas pedal are adjustable. Three settings of 5/16 inches (.79 cm) and three screw holes respectively. I'll give you what are set on mine (size 8 boot remember) so you have an idea; I've the heel loop at the center setting ("1") and the gas pedal at the center setting.
-From lowest part of highback padding to edge of gas pedal: 10 3/16 inches (25.88 cm)

Wow, sorry.

Just about all models vary in size, and this is why there is overlap in those sizes. I'm sure you know this.

The best option is to take the boots into your local shop.

Sincerely,

Here's what I should have said, instead of directing you to the size chart:

I have no idea what the sizing is like on Nitro Crown boots. If they are average fit (sole width and upper volume), I would suggest going with the medium size.

Thanks for the support.
