Great boots, confusing size

Verified Buyer Reviewed by trotterz from New Jersy on Monday, March 2, 2015
I bought these boots for an overseas friend who was visiting in U.S. She loved these boots! They were extremely comfortable and well made. However, we had to exchange them due to the confusion on size. Her size is EU 38.5, which according to most online size conversion, is equivalent to US size 8. I initially bought a pair of Hanwag Banks for her. Great boots as well! But the size on the the website was UK size. I made a mistake of choosing UK size 8 which is equivalent to US size 10.5 or EU size 41. So I had to return and exchanged for Asolo Neutron and I carefully chose size 8. The website did not indicate this is UK size so I assumed it is U.S. size 8. It turns out somehow for Asolo, U.S. size 8 is equivalent to EU size 40! way larger than standard conversion. I had to exchange again! This time for U.S. size 7, and I don't know for sure if this is going to work.

STP is a great website and offers very competitive prices for many products. But shoe sizing is a confounding issue. I hope the website could have listed the conversion tables on each product so that it could save time and money for both buyer and seller.
