Boden shoes - true to size?

I've never ordered shoes from Boden before and I'm wondering what the sizes are like.

I normally take an 8 but their 'guesstimator' tool advises me to order a 7.

Does anyone have any experience of how their sizes come up?

Shoes for some reason for me always come up big! But boots seems to be true to size! You could always order both sizes and send one back! smile

Yes, I'd thought about ordering two of each style (3) I'm looking at but this means putting £600 on my credit card. We all know how sloooooow they are to refund returns. sad

I have a couple of Johnnie B shoes & they've always been true to size.

My experience has been that their shoes are narrow and small. I have to go up to a 39 where as I am a 38 everywhere else I shop.

They are too narrow for me.

I vary between 41 and 42 but always 42 at Boden

I'm in exactly the same position as overtired. Usually 41, 42 with Boden.

Interesting. Thanks all. I'll go for 42 massive foot alert

Do you have very narrow, elegant feet? I laughed when the shoes I ordered arrived as there was no way my feet would get into them.
Money back in my account within a week of me posting the items. Previous refund had been more like 3 weeks.

They do tend to be narrow but the right length so sizing up doesn't usually help

Skinny feet here.

Boden shoes cripplingly narrow. Quality pretty crap too.

Very narrow and a bit small.

I'm a 7.5 and their 7s fit me perfectly. I have long, narrow feet & I find their 8s enormous on me.

Perhaps if you link to the exact shoes someone might already have them.

I only have one pair. I don't find them narrow. They are a fraction smaller than expected but not to much that I'd change size.

That should read " not SO much".
