I am on my third or fourth pair of Harness boots due to the fact that I can never seem to get the right fit. But this time I figured it out! Since the 8.5 seems okay and the 9 seems okay but the toes kill me in both, I decided to order a men's 7 (the new chocolate antique leather!!!). The men's sizes are wider in the toe. I figured to take up the slack or "bigness" of a men's shoe/boot, I would order the UGG insole in a 7 and voila! Well...the insoles arrived today, and I popped them into the boots (which fit remarkably well on their own, but are cold on my feet) and now they are too snug in the toe box. So my question is, do I wear the boots without any insoles and deal with the coldness (and sore feet after walking on hard surfaces for a while), or should I try cutting the toes off the insoles so I have partial cushion and warmth but a big toe box. What do you guys think? Has anyone tried this?
