This is a very nice brogue boot. The recommendation to size down by half worked for me as I typically take either Allen Edmonds 10 3E, or 10.5 2E, depending on the last. I purchased a size UK 10. I have a narrow heel and midfoot, high arch and wide forefoot, making shoe selection generally tough, let alone sight unseen. The last of this boot is really good for my foot and the boot is also very high volume (the leather at the eyelets meets when the boot is laced), which helps for adding an insert/wearing a second pair of socks.

If you are researching these boots online, don't mistake them for Tricker's Stows, their iconic country boot... these are slightly narrower and seem to have different welt construction.

Aside from it being a very good quality boot, it has a great Dainite sole and a gusseted tongue, which is something that the Allen Edmonds boots these have replaced lacked. These features make it suitable for bad weather.
