There is no “normal size”, because there are no “normal feet”. Feet in general are either narrow or wide and are all three-dimensional. Shoes, however, are normally produced only in different lengths, because consumers nowadays demand many colorways and designs, rather than varying fits.

In the 1960’s many shoemakers produced a far smaller number of shoes and then produced them in several widths (example: B, D, E, EE etc). Note: Width is not to be confused with a slimmer shoe silhouette.

Do notice that US producers convert US sizes to EU sizes differently, so it can be a help to focus on CM (centimeters) or USA (US).

Sneakers often have a slimmer silhouette than boots, so many will go down half a size from their sneaker size to their boot size.

Narrow and normal width (D):
All boots, shoes and sneakers.

Wide width (EE):
Red Wing 8111EE or 875EE and all Danner boots, as they are all in width EE.

Red Wing Shoes are listed in US sizes. The width of the 8833 is D and it is made using last no. 23. As they run a bit big, we recommend sizing down half a size from your sneaker-size.

Important info: Due to the uncolored leather, there can be small visible traces of scars in the surface, but as always, Red Wing has a high standard on their products, so its only a visible thing and does not weakening the leather.
