I'm probably not the best person to ask! Here is some info:

https://welldresseddad.com/2014/03/30/iconic-footwear-paraboot-michael-classic/

The fit is not slim, and has quite a bit of volume in the instep. In a roomy Astorflex boot or Clarks I take a 9, and the 9.5 in these feels similar if not slightly smaller. Bear in mind I have worn them once though so hopefully they can give a bit to allow thicker socks, which I foolishly didn't think about.

I take a 9 uk in pretty much everything that isn’t trainers (44 / UK10 in Nike) and the 9 / 43 EU felt right for the Michael model.

yeah it's a cool old picture of an ivy league university with actual ivy on it, but seriously think about what the dude is wearing. He looks like a total fucktard who can't dress himself, he would have then and he does now.

He looks like Jerry Lewis shrunk his clothes in some nutty movie from then.

That's Neidamayer from Animal House all day long

Picked up Iron Heart's new parka.

Large or medium?

Large with UHF Under


Medium with UHF Under

Large with just a T-shirt



Medium with just a T-shirt


My thoughts, If I had never tried the medium on I would of been happy with the large fit but now I got the medium I questioning it.
The medium feels a bit constricted in the shoulders and I can't imagine getting anything other than a UHF( Ultra heavy flannel) under it. That being said do I need anything more? This thing feels warm!!

So is the large too big???

Thoughts please fellas

large for me, medium looks decent but is too "fitted" for the look youre into and iron heart in general.

Not the cheap (£539) but Iron Heart is about the only company I would drop big bucks on these days. Everything they do is done ridiculous well.

They got a beige one too if that’s your thing

Thanks guys. Large was definitely what I was siding on.

Very nice that, never think of Iron Heart. I see they do Beige would be tempted if they had more colours.
