At Nelson-Jameson, we often get questions from customers asking about how to find the right size when ordering boots for female employees. For those not familiar, industrial/work boots are generally sold only in men's sizes. Hence, things can start off on the wrong foot for buyers hoping to find their employees the right footwear.
Though some variance does occur among manufacturers and among different kinds of footwear styles, a general rule to consider is:" women can find the right boot by subtracting two." For example, a U.S. Women's 8 generally converts to a U.S. Men's 6. In our experience, this works well for ordering both boots and inserts.
If you have any questions though, don't hesitate to call us and we'll "walk" you through the process to help you find the perfect pair of boots for you or your employees!
