Rolling Dub has advised that The LORO runs narrow similar to GLEANERS.
Tommy Wears US 9 Sneaker / 8 GLEANERS and would be an 8 LORO.
(Tommy does not have a wide foot or high in-step)
Be advised If you have a wider foot you may have difficulty with this boot due to the narrow toebox and ankle / instep opening.
The LORO runs slightly more Narrow then the GLEANERS.
Sizing recommendations are as follows:
Normal Foot shape - Size the LORO down 1 Size from your US Sneaker Size. This will be a snug fit.
If you have a high instep Or Wide Foot - Only Go 1/2 down from your sneaker size.
Note** a full size down will be a snug fit, if you desire room in your boots we recommend only going .5 down since this is a more slim boot profile.
