Combat Boot Fit & Sizing Guide


How All Boots Should Fit

For a proper fit, you should have a slight amount of room in the front of the boots to wiggle your toes. Width-wise, your boots should feel a little snug (but not tight!) Your heel should stay in place while walking and not slide back and forth (which can cause blisters). To improve the fit of the boot, try loosening or tightening the laces at different parts of the boot until you get the perfect fit.


Altama Boots

We usually recommend trying at least a size smaller than the size that you wear in running shoes for our military boots. For our tactical lines, we recommend purchasing the same size as your running shoes.


Belleville Boots

You can determine your correct Belleville size by using a Brannock measuring device, which can be found in most shoe stores across the U.S., to accurately measure the size and width of your foot. Belleville hot weather boots run about to 1 size larger than your normal shoe size. Belleville Boots containing a GORE-TEX bootie may require size larger than our hot weather boots for a proper fit.


Original SWAT Boots

Original SWAT boot sizes are comparable to your normal running shoe size.


Tactical Research Boots

Tactical Research boot sizes are comparable to your normal running shoe size.


Wellco Boots

You can determine your correct Wellco size by using a Brannock measuring device, which can be found in most shoe stores across the U.S., to accurately measure the size and width of your foot.
