    Great stuff Martin. I wear a 10 1/2 sneaker (US) but have wide feet . As the Baffin boots do not come in widths do you think that I should get a size 11? Do you wear heavy socks with them?

    thanks, artie

      Hi Artie,

      I usually take a 9 UK / 10 US size, but it felt just a bit too snug, so I went for the 10 UK / 11 US size and if anything they’re a tad too large, although trapping a bit of air is good to help keep warm. I have pretty wide feet too, so yes, I’d say go for the 11 and they’ll probably be perfect.

      Yes, I wear the socks at the top of this post with them. They have a very thick weave inside too.

      Thanks for dropping by!

    Thanks a stack Martin. I am wondering if I will wind up needing a 12….

      Maybe so, but I was thinking that as you take a 1/2 size larger than me in a sneaker, and my size 11 (US) Baffins are just slightly on the large size, they might be perfect for you. I was able to put a pair of size 10 (US) on, but they were a tad too tight.

      Of course it would be best if you could try them before you buy, but if you mail order, ensure you can send them back if necessary.

    I ordered a size 11. As expected, the boots are huge. But I could barely get my size 10 1/2 feet into them without socks on…. I am exchanging them for a size 12 and would not be shocked if they are too small as they are very narrow….. 🙂

      Wow! That’s surprising. I usually take a 3E width shoe, and although they are snug, the US 10 were fine for me. Sorry about that Artie. I hope the 12s are good for you though.
