US size 9


Recommended Posts

If you are after US boots and your feet are wide, be careful. In my experience, the average American foot (and hence footwear) is substantially narrower than its British equivalent.


In the 70s (when DMS boots were awful and Boots, CH were still in development) I simply could not get hold of a pair of US boots to fit me in a desperate attempt to find footwear better suited to exercises in BAOR.


In the winter I wore fur-lined Panzerstiefel (Jack Boots for tank crews). Coupled with a cut-down greatcoat because parkas were in limited supply and a giant pair of motorcycle gauntlets from my civilian mode of transport, I was generally greeted as a right sight on exercise, but I tended to stay rather warmer than most huddled in the cab / turret of my Ferret.
