Buying cowboy boots online can be a risky move. There are different fits for different brands and you may not even know what is the best size to order. Hopefully I can help clear some of that up with these tips for buying cowboy boots online.

Make sure you know your boot size

Cowboy boots sizes are different than most shoe sizes. They have a regular size for length like what you may be used to seeing in shoes and sneakers. Size 11, size 9, etc. Another important aspect to finding the best fit in cowboy boots online is knowing your width too.

Width is notated by letters. Narrow width sizes for men are A, B, and C. Average width sizes are D and sometimes E. Wide width sizes are EE and EEE.

Knowing both your boot size and width is crucial to ordering the right size online.

To find out your US size, sit down in a chair in the afternoon when you have been on your feet for awhile and trace your foot on a piece of cardboard or paper.

Then take a ruler or measuring tape and measure length from heel to toe to find your boot size. Use the table below to match the inches with US boot size.

After you have your boot size length, it’s time to find the measurement for the width of your foot. Take your ruler or tape measure and find how many inches is the widest part of your foot. From the the ball of you foot to just below your pinkie toe.

Find your length boot size on the table below and move through the columns until you find the measurement for your width. Follow that column back up to see what the notated letter is for your boot width.

Since my foot measures about 11 1/3 inches long. I am around a size 12. My foot width is just under 4 inches, so looked at size 12 on the width table and went over until I found 3.9 inches. I traced that back up and I can see that I am a B width. So my true size for cowboy boots is a 12B.
