Default Help with boot sizing

Hi Guys,

Since no one within an hour and a half of me carries small boots, I am going to have to order like 10 from dog funk and do a trial and error. Can anyone give me any guidance on what boots may fit better for smaller feet? I know boots fit different per person, but for example I read 32 run wide so those probably won't be very good for me.

Anyone have any recommendation what boot generally may be better for those with smaller feet? Personally I am looking at the Nike Vapen, K2 Raider, and Burton Rampant.

My previous boot was also a Ride Orion size 8. After about 30-40 sessions, I was getting a decent amount of heel lift. My normal nike shoe size is either a 7 or 7.5 depending on shoe. Anyone have any general info on if those brands run true to size, big or small? I was told a Ride 8 is probably like a Nike 7.

Just trying to narrow down the choices and order so I don't order 10 pairs and $2k worth of boots just to return all but 1.

My regular shoe is mens size 7,....ya right there are virtually no men's boots in size 7 that I found that could work...so I have been using women's 32's focus boas in size 8 and this year have downsized to wms 7.5 due to packing abit after breaking in....btw the work great and fit like pink fuzzy slippers. If you have to switch to a women's get a stiffer high end model.

There is a chart comparison that list us, eu, metric size equivalents

I've heard the nike boots fit a little more narrow than other boots, but I don't have any experience with them. I bet a 7 in the nike would fit. It sounds like your last boots were too big. Make sure that when you try them on that your toes are touching the front of the boot. You don't want them crammed in the front, but they should at least be touching. And remember that they will pack out a bit, so think about that too.

I've never used Dog Funk before but see they have free shipping on orders over $50 and free return shipping if not satisfied. Any catches to this?

I'd like to order new boots (K2 Maysis) but wasn't sure if I should get the 10.5 or 11. No one has them within 50 miles of me but a return policy like that would be cool.
