Leather Hobes should fit firmly to start with. They will give and loosen up with wear as a result of the ultra light soft leather used to construct the shoe upper.
Our Boat Hobes, Point Hobes and Chelsea Boots (including wool-lined Chelsea Boots) run true to size. If your measurements are between sizes, always size up.
For Wooly Hobes, please take one full size up to allow for the lambswool lining.
Non Leather Hobes do not give out or loosen up, so they should not feel overly firm to begin with. If in doubt we always suggest sizing up with the Non Leather Hobes.
How to find your size:
- Stand with your back against a straight wall on a level floor and with a ruler or tape, measure the length of your foot from your heel to your longest toe.
- Compare this measurement with the lengths (cm) in the size chart below
- Select your European size. If your measurement is between sizes, we recommend you select the larger size.
