sorry have looked harder at the site and they do have a size guide, couldn't find it before. they have 7s as a 40.

40 or 41.
(I'm a big 7 and prefer a 41)

am confused at how it can be both!

Well it's the same way that you can be a size 12 in one shop/style of dress and a size 14 in another. I am a 7 and would generally go for a 41 (though some shops would say that was a 7 1/2) but I have bought shoes in a 40 a few times. Where are you buying from - maybe someone else has got boots from there and can tell you how their sizes are?

topshop - their size guide says 40 [hopeful] cos i just ordered.

Sometimes 40, sometimes 41 (Next is 41 for example). Very occasionally I have seen 7 as 39!

I am a 7 and ask for a 41, though sometimes a 40 fits

40 or 41 because UK and European sizes don't quite line up. The gap between a UK size and the size bigger is a larger gap than between two European sizes.

Like this:
37___38____39____40____41____42
04_____05_____06_____07_____08____
09

(wonders if that will work)

I cn only wear 7s that are 41, if a shop says 7 is 40 it's too small for me.

ooh very good graphic trill

[crestfallen] hope the 40s will be okay. i did get some 39s yesterday cos it was all they had and i had to have them, they're a squeeze but not impossibly so if i wear thin socks [hopeful again]

I wear anything from a 39 to a 41, depending on the shop. Usually a 40. (I am a 7)

If you can sometimes fit a 39 then a 40 should be the right 7 for you

<optimistic>

Some shops call 40 a 7 in girls sizes (cos they stop at 8) and 41 a 7 in mens sizes (cos that's approx where they start).
