Jorel, I'm 8.5 nikes, sized up to 9 as kolor UBs don't come in half sizes and they're spot on.

I'm gonna say half. I have a size 10uk and need a 9.5.
They only look good with 'baggy'/straight trousers IMO so bare that in mind.

Depends on the last and width fitting. They come in F and G width. It also depends what you mean by true to size. I'd drop .5 at least if they are G fittings and if your foot isn't wide.

Is there anything you can get (like an inner sole or something) to stop your heels wearing down more on one side?

You can get things added to the heel to help with grip and I expect a cobbler would have something to prevent the heel from wearing down but I don't know if there is anything that would prevent it from wearing down on a specific side?

Would a mouldable insole help? If your shoes are wearing down on one side more than another it might be because of overpronation or underpronation.

Redwings fit big/wide so should have no problem with sizing issues. Yuketen and Quoddy are both available in E width.
