What Size Am I?
Shoe sizes can vary considerably between brands. A US13 with one brand could be a US12 with another brand.  We always recommend doing a quick foot length measurement to find the correct size. Once you have this, you can ascertain your insole measurement (please see the image below) and then simply look that up on our size chart to locate the most appropriate size.
A detailed guide can be founded here.
We also have a Shoe Size Guarantee to give you peace of mind with your size selection. More details can be found here.

Did You Know?
This design is based on the Westland Lysander (“MA-J” Serial Number V9673) flown by WWII fighter pilot and later a "special duties" squadron pilot with the Special Operations Executive (SOE), Hugh Verity.  Verity undertook at least 29 (possibly as many as 36 night flights) into France, perhaps the most of any RAF pilot. His role was to drop off and pick up resistance workers, SOE agents and other figures at secret locations inside France. Records indicate Verity flew "V9673" with squadron fuselage codes 'MA-J' for 20 operations to occupied France while serving with No. 161 Squadron. Verity passed away on November 14th, 2001 aged 83.

His military decorations include the Distinguished Service Order & Bar, Distinguished Flying Cross, Officer of the Legion of Honour (France) and the Croix de guerre (France).
