You gotta try boots on to know what fits. Whether you want to buy in a store or find something that fits, then buy it online is up to you. I'm not shy about going into a store, finding something that I like then letting them know what I can get it online for. If it's a local shop and not a chain, they'll usually knock something off. If they do, I'll buy there. I'm not asking them to match the price, just meet me halfway.
