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 thanks!

And thanks to everyone that replied, including union guy/girl for the last comments.

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.

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,

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..

I agree with you mate.

Union webguy, you really weren't much help. OzSno has clearly already looked at the sizing chart before you sent him the link.

Anyway... Heed the advice others have given, size up instead of sizing down.

Fortunately, a local shop had a large binding and when I put my boot in that supposedly fit the large binding, my boot did not fit. The binding was way too big for a boot size that supposedly fit.
Ya, and I've fit numerous people into bindings this past year where the boot couldn't even get into the back of the binding because the boot was too big to fit securely into the heel cup. So yes, if you cannot physically try them on, your best bet is to go for the larger size, especially if you are right on the fence with sizes. There's a greater probability that you won't fit into the smaller size, than the bigger size.
