It is unlikely that boots would be larger than your sneakers.

Do the 7.5 ZF fit your feet?
yup, they fit well. no heel lift, no blisters, no squished toes..

Found a pair of Women's ZF1's at Ross last night - picked them up for $79.99.

I wear a size 8 in Nike sneakers and soccer cleats but when I got these home and actually tried them on for real (they're bound together in the store), they were painfully too small. My left foot went numb in 5 mins - not something I think I could overcome by breaking them in.

The Ross near me (in Philly area) had men's ZF1's too for $29.99. Only small sizes - but if you happen to have small feet, that's an awesome deal!

Guess I'll try the other Ross stores in my area to see if I can get lucky and find 8.5s.

I had heard that Ross had ZF1s. Were they all white? Or sparkly white/teal?

These were the tan ones w/the green laces. They also had a pair of the purple ones.

I've been using a pair of ZF1's for a couple seasons and they are very comfortable. I've previously used DC Scout boots with boa. For those buying online, just know that they don't fit true to size. With Nike dunks and Jordans, I'm a 9.5. I went up a full size 10.5 to get a comfortable fit. Size 10 was still too small and numbing.

ZF1, in my opinion, are the best boots I've ever ridden in. In the past I've had ridden in some northwaves and recently ditched my DC Judges for the ZF1s. I think they run a bit smaller then their basketball shoes. I wear a 10.5 for dunks and jordans but my ZF1's are size 11.

.5 to 1 size bigger seems to be the consensus

Bigger than what?

As I've said before, people usually wear their sneakers bigger cause it's more comfortable. But boot fit should be more snug, similar to dress shoes.

bigger than nike sneakers. the last 2 posts are people saying that they had to go bigger on nike boots because they probably run smaller and not true to size. i went a half size bigger on my boots and it still feels snug, like dress shoes.

i don't get the point you're trying to make. are you saying me and others who have said they went bigger on their boots are wrong and wearing the wrong size boots? i think we know what fits and what doesn't.

What I am saying is that sneakers and boots have no correlation. Boot size (length) should be measured by mondo size or with a brannock device. But just because the length is right, it doesn't mean the boot will fit right. For example, I fit into Burton Ions in a 8.5, but they're too narrow. Even a 9.5 is still a big narrow. Does that mean I should size up to a 10 to get the width I need?

What if you wear your shoes .5 bigger, I wear mine 1 size bigger, Steve wears his 2 sizes bigger? Would you still recommend all of us to size up?
