There are several Rome dealers in VA, are any of these close to you? You just can't beat trying on boots in person, there's so much more to a good fit than just finding the correct length. If you're set on mail order, an 8.5 should be OK.

Hi Deerpark,

No, it is rare for one brand's sizing to match anothers. If you measure your foot using the method below and email it to the retailer, they should be able to let you know with a high degree of certainty that a specific boot size will be a good fit.

Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).
