I'm sure our local binrats supply techs will be around to give the correct answer but I will go out on a limb and say wrt ankle boots/wwb/gp boot they are all sized using the MONDO POINT system. Combat Boots (MK III) and saftey boots are sized differently (not 100% sure on this now though).

My Mk IIIs - 9-91/2 E, Altama Jungle Boots - 10W, Civie shoes - 10.5, Danner/Swat/5.11 - 11, WWB - 280/102, GP - 275/104. No set standard really - based on boot manufacturer. Needless to say, important to check with stock insoles as well as after-market (Superfeet, Custom Soles, Spencos etc) for fit (some boots fit tighter than others), as well as the sock combo you will wear (eg black/green, black/wool or hiking/boot sock combos).

Well, going back to the original 'judging' thread:
Since Bruce is too bashful, I nominate him as head of the selection committee for the calendar. Journeyman and I grudgingly agree to take the other two posts.
While I don't seek out such fame and responsibility, it was thrust upon me, and I'm willing to be an active contributor to my community.

That has nothing to do with you women doing laundry, or having feet more genetically favourable to standing closer to kitchen sinks   >:D

Now, if some people *cough*Vern, Lil T*cough* would stop making extra work for the Mods, who now have to move this hijacking over to proper thread....serious people can get back to discussing foot size/military footwear   ;)

This thread is about foot/boot size. My obviously meaningful contribution was clearly about foot size. No derailment there.  ;D

I've seen a boot marked as 14F in an army surplus, what does that stand for?
And as a person who usually wears size 16 men shoes would this fit me?

An "F" is a fairly wide foot. If you find that a size 15 in a men's running shoe is pretty comfortable, the 14F may fit you. Again, as I pointed out earlier, the MKIII leather was prone to stretching and in my experience those who wore a wider boot tended to stretch more that most. A soldier with a wider foot could turn that 14F into a pair of leather canoes!! But it would be in your best interests to try on the boot in question - wear the sock that you would most likely wear inside it, tie them up nice and tight and walk around the shop a few times. I gaurentee you won't have digging in the top of your instep (common desert boot problem) but you may have flop syndrome...

Boot Size
« Reply #38 on: June 22, 2011, 20:41:29 »
Hello Everyone,
I was just wondering how the Canadian Forces boot sizes work.
I understand that they use large, longitude and lateral numbers instead of a one or two digit number.
But does that represent the length of the foot and width, or something else?
The reason is that I'm trying to purchase a pair of Canadian Army WWB and I don't know which size would fit me.
I measured my foot to be around 275/110. Does that mean my boot size would be 270/114?
What size is 270/114 in regular US/Canadian sizes?
What are the US Canadian sizes in length and width?
Thank you Very much,
Joseph

I think that would be size 10W.  Is that consistent with the size of other footwear you have?

The link below goes to a shoe sizing chart. The system is called the mondopoint system, you can google many other sites that will provide a chart. The second number is the width of your foot. Remember to measure using the sock system you will be wearing in the boot.

I wear 12 Regular, only because I can't find shoes wide enough, so I compensate with length. There is about an inch from the toe of my foot to the toe of the shoe.


These are the boots I'd like to purchase, they seem to be 13.5 Inches tall. My current shoes are 12.75 inches tall (the size 12 one). It seems to be bigger than my size 12 boots, but it's size 10.5/11?
Thank you for the chart as well.

Looking at the chart, I think you should put more faith in that than my estimate.  (Mine is based on the boot size that Logistik Unicorps proposes when a variety of foot dimensions are input and is not a foolproof calculation.)

My experience with these boots is that when new, they should be very snug, because they stretch.  When I was issued my first pair, they fit "normally" when I tried them on, but within a a day or two my feet were swimming in them, no matter how much I tightened them.  I had to go back and get a smaller pair.

help with Measuring DEU footwear
« Reply #44 on: July 20, 2011, 15:15:19 »
For the clothing experts
I'm trying to order new DEU footwear off of Logistik Unikorp. It only has the mm measurement and not the old 9 1/2e type stuff.
There is no explanation on the website for how to measure your feet.

I ordered a measuring package a few weeks ago but it didn't come in (And I'm assuming there is some type of foot size measurement in the package to begin with)

Is there a trick to measuring my feet for the MM measurement to order DEU boots?  Can I just stand on a piece of paper and trace an outline of my foot and measure the length and width?

Can I use the size of my Wet Weather boot measurement to judge what size I'll need for DEU boots?

Thanks

As you said, measure your feet.  I did the same and it worked out great.  See below for a "how to" with links to sizing tables attached:

Your WWB size should be the same.  I ordered the same size ankle boots as my WWB and they fit fine.  From the Logistik Unicorps site, it says you just measure the longest and widest dimensions of your foot, so if you so the paper trace thing it should come out reasonably close to your WWB size.

the canadian combat boot sizes are u.k. sizes. figure out what your normal runner size is (witch is canadian/american sizes) and than convert it to u.k. size. there is a web sight that dose this for standard sizes as well as metric (witch is hat you are showing).

Canadian Combat boot sizes are not in U.K. sizes.
