These boots are made of very soft, beautiful leather. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7, so I ordered these in a size 7. In fact, I own a different pair of Born boots in 7 that fit perfectly. These boots, however, run very narrow in the toe box. The excellent Customer Service at Rogan's exchanged my boots for a 7.5, and I was delighted to find that they fit nicely when they arrived. So, I suggest that you skip the extra step, and order up a half size!
