To give you more stability when you walk, the ball of your foot should fit in between the widest part of the boot. Check, the ball part of your foot, is in the proper place. Otherwise if the toes are to forward into to the front it means the boot is too short for the foot.Show on diagramHeel

Shopping for shoes online is a lot of fun. However, sometimes it can be challenging. Old Gringo would like to share some tips with you especially if this is your first time buying a pair of Old Gringo Boots. Our boots are handmade, meaning hand lasted in a welted construction. These will be the most comfortable boots/shoes you own, but the fit is not like traditional machine made footwear.
Be open to the possibility of maybe choosing a new size. Start with your regular shoe size. If you have a chance, have your feet measured once a year to see if your size may change.
Notice that certain socks can make an extra 1/2 size difference to your feet.
Consider the larger size if you regularly wear 1/2 sizes (if you are in between sizes)
If you have athletic calves. Our boots have a European cut and tend to be narrow in the leg. Consider 1/2 size up if you are ordering boots with shafts 13 inches or taller.
If you have high-arched foot or instep. And want to guarantee a comfortable fit, it may be a good idea to consider boots with zippers and elastics.
If you have athletic calves, we suggest 10 inch or shorter shaft boots or shoes.
If your boots did not fit perfectly, remember that we have an easy return policy. Remember we have excellent customer support, we will be happy to answer question or concerns regarding our products.
Old Gringo Boots are made of all leather even the sole. They will mold to your foot and be the boots you never want to take off.
