Knowledge: Boot Sizing



RIEDELL SIZING
ALWAYS measure your foot and use the Riedell Ritz Stick sizing table below to get the proper size boot. Riedell speed/derby boots are based on two different lasts (shapes). See the details of the lasts below and refer to the chart accordingly. Let us know if you have any questions at all. We'll be happy to help you with this.

THE GENERAL RULE
Boots are in Mens Sizes
Ladies Go Down One Size
Example: Ladies 8 = Mens 7
MENS SIZES?
All speed skate boots, with very few exceptions, are in mens sizes. It is generally recommended for ladies to go down one size from mens sizes to ladies. For example, if you wear a ladies size 8, you would get a mens size 7.
TRUE TO SIZE?
Most boots, unless otherwise noted, run true to size and you would order the same size as dress shoes.
Most less expensive boots come in full sizes only and most people who wear half sizes order up to the next full size for extra comfort. Some people prefer their boots to be very snug and choose to order down to the next smallest full size. That is up to you.
WIDTH
Most boots come in a medium (normally C) width. Some of the more expensive Riedell boots are available in wide and/or can be special made in any width that you need for an extra fee.
