You've heard the saying that no two people are alike, well no two feet are alike either. Getting the perfect fit in a pair of fire fighting boots is rarely as simple telling your chief that you wear a particular size. To get the right size, a good place to start is by having your feet measured on a Brannock device. A Brannock device measures the overall length, arch (ball-to-heel) length, and width of your foot, and all three measurements are factors in achieving a good fit. The overall length and arch length are the two most important measurements for determining length. Use the larger of these two measurements as a starting point for selecting your boot size.
When trying on boots make sure to bring the socks you would normally wear when using the boots for their intended purpose, and any orthotics or custom insoles you use. For the Vulcan, Hercules V2, and Helios, start by trying on the size and width determined by your Brannock device measurement. For the Titan, start by trying on the size and width determined by your Brannock device measurement, plus a 1/2 size.
You want to make sure that your toes are not touching the front of the boots. Ensure that the ball of your foot is positioned where the boot naturally flexes. Ensure that your feet are held snugly and comfortably in place while walking. Your heel should feel snug in the heelcup and should not slide up and down easily.
Ultimately, the right size for you is the size that fits, regardless of the number on the shoe or the box.
