Hi everybody!
I was just about to order some corcoran Jump boots, but am a bit confused with the sizes and was hoping someone can help me.

I live in sweden and therefore I'm using EU sizes. I normally wear 45 EU, which in some charts translate to around 11-15 US.
Every seller I've asked has answered me differently to which size to order, varying from 11 to 18 (?!).

If I lay a ruler on the floor my feets are 28cm which is about 11inches.

In my Converse shoes the US size is 11, and EU 45.
So in that case I would go with 11.

Which size do you guys think I should order?
Perhaps anyone have the same size of feets as me? :-)

Whoop, forgot to write a post here yesterday like I'd meant to, sorry bout that! Fake edit, let's just ignore how badly I need to sweep the floors in my workspace.
So I'm not quite your shoe size, at a US 10, but I do regularly wear Converse low-tops, and own a nice snug pair of 995's, so I'll see if I can offer some helpful anecdotal evidence.

First off a comparison of the labels in the shoes in question, the Converse: Image
And the Corcoran: Image
As you can see, the Corcoran label only gives me US size and, I assume, centimeter sizes. With the US 10 being a 17 cm, I'm not certain that a single size up is going to give you a full 10 cm more length?
More anecdotally, I can confirm, the Converse fit much longer than the Corcoran. They have about the same exterior size, but I would say the boots have much less internal space. That said, it doesn't show too well in most pictures but the 995's actually have a super wide toe space (They were originally designed for paratroopers, makes sense I suppose.), so you should actually have a little bit of wiggle room for width of foot and comfort. As for how the size comparison runs?

I would say, the Converse definitely fits a bit looser, not a surprise being a low-cut shoe:

But not considerably so, I would feel comfortable matching sizes according to the US size of your Converse, myself, but like so many things on the internet your mileage may vary.

Thanks for a great reply, and comparison! :-)

So the conclusion of your comparison would be: both the converse and the Corcoran are size 10 and they both fit you good?
Or would you rather have gone up a half size or so on the boots?
You wrote that they were a bit snug...

My Converse is size 11 and perhaps size 11 or 11.5 would be good then...? :-)

Exactly, sir, I would say it's a pretty close measure to use your Converse size for reference. I'm happy with my size, a half-size either way would probably be just a little too snug or too large. I was trying to get across that the Corcoran's ARE a little bit tighter of a fit, but not enough to cause any discomfort, I would more compare it to being like a tailored fit compared to how much stretch the canvas body will give on a pair of Converse.

Be sure to research methods for breaking your jump boots in. I used mink oil to treat my pair. I would rub the mink oil in, then roll and flex the leather around in the area of the boot (seam for the heel cap) that was digging into my feet. I would then treat the leather again and leave it over night. It took two more sessions like this to break them in so they don't rub blisters on my feet.

I have a pair of the vietnam era style style black combat boots with leather toe and heel caps and that pair I was able to get in a size 12 wide and wear with no problems, but I had to get my rocky paratrooper boots in a size 13 regular if that helps you any on sizing.

Hello all, new guy here, so I have been given a challenge, to complete, by the South Dakota Ghostbusters team, to become a joker Ghostbuster. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of how to get a custom no ghost logo. Only thing is, it needs to be the Batman logo with the no logo over it. Any help is appreciated, thanks guys!

WELL spotted, Kingpin! <APPLAUSE, APPLAUSE[…]
