Corcoran Boots

I wanna get a pair of Corcoran boots either in the 1525 version or the Tanker version. I have a pair of Lineman 2996 in US10.5 and a pair of Red Wing Harvesters in US10. I wear a US11 is Adidas/New Balance/Asics and US11.5 in Nike. What size should I get?

Any good alternatives or recommendation will also be good. Experience from you guys would be best as well. Thanks guys!

If these are tough boots, there is only one answer. Go and fit them yourself in an actual shoe shop.
If the fabric is flexible, like with sneakers, tolerances are smaller. And even then: don’t hurt as much.
Tough boots have larger tolerances and can be rather unforgiving towards the bearer if the size is off.

I buy that kind of shoes in actual shops, after a thourough look around on the internet. And they last for years.
My wife buys her shoes mainly on line and spends much time running to and from the postal agency.
If she just would put in a little more effort, the guys from the landfill would be sending her Christmas cards. Crying

Edit: don’t trust sizes. They differ per country. What we call XL here, is M in the US. Same with foot wear.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

That’s the problem for me, Corcoran isn’t available in my country. Even my Harvesters are Europe only model. The only I tried were the 2996. Which is why I’m asking for experiences on these pair. I would have tried them on in store if they were available anyways haha Silly

Sizes are hell. Just type in *oogle: “do these pan”. And you get a lot of answers, related to “chubby cheeks”.
