A uniquely shallow goth dilemna...|
Just found some nice boots to buy online, so I thought I'd check my shoes to see what size I need - sadly for a goth I only have 2 pairs of boots, but when you throw in shoes and trainers I start looking like Imelda Marcos. And I find that I have the following sizes (Men's Euro):
Now, faced with that data, how the hell am I supposed to order online?
If I understand men's fashion correctly (let's not even get into women's sizes, it's all b.s. anyway), you look at similar styles to determine similar size. so boot sizes are probably going to be closer to each other, sneakers will be similar, etc. Also, within a manufacturer, sizing will be closer than between manufacturers. So if you either have another pair of shoes/boots by the company you want to order from, or you have other pairs of boots, pick in that range (shoot for the middle). if all else fails, shoot for the overall average.
if all else fails, find the same boots at a store locally, try them on, then order them online (if they're cheaper that way). that's what I do, sneaky chick that I am.
