    I used to know it all---but now that I'm older I seem to forget it all.

    I would go with the bigger size as you want your feet to have some room in the boots cause if the boots fit tight you feet get cold faster. I got a 10 last time I got boots and now with all I have on my feet I should of gotten a size 11.

    Thanks Jim
    that's what I expected but I wanted to make sure with some folks who'd put 'em on their feet.

    I second that notion...1/2 to 1 size larger for sock room...not only for warmth but also cushion...just dont go too big.

    One thing to look for is the lace system - I have Chota with the spikes and quick lace system- I can be in my boots for about 15 seconds per foot - but if you hike a lot to get to fishing areas, they are probably not the best since you cannot keep them dogged down tightly.

    I've had the same thought about my Chota's. Thought I might change out the laces so I can clamp 'em down. Maybe a nice color to go with my tianium nippers. It would be so tres chic. But really, I've wondered if that is why I get gravel inside my boots. I know why I have gravel inside my head, frickin' Army anyway.
