They're a snug E imo. I've had red wing wabasha chukkas which were an E and those were a lot more roomier across teh toes. When you 'pinch' the toe box on maine guides there's less material than the RWs.

I picked up a pair of Maine Guide OX, full size down (only size available at a good price and thought it was worth the risk). Length wise they seem to be fine, a little roomy if anything, but certainly a tad tight in the width. Can anyone advise how much they stretch/give after wear, and how long it takes?

hey so the consensus is they do break in?

got a 10E in the 'keith' style, but i am inbetween 10 and 11, closer to 11.

the sides are fairly tight; not enough to cause major discomfort, but it's not super nice, you know?

Selfridges and Liberty both definitely do. I think DSM & LN-CC probably still do?

Bigger fitting imo mate, go at least half a size down.

Thanks. I saw the size listed as UK9, US9.5 somewhere, I thought a UK9 would be a US10. Do you know the ranger mocs? I had those in a US 10, perfect fit. Wonder if these would fit me.

In my opinion they fit true, maybe slightly bigger - though not enough to size down.

Considering a pair of Rockers and wondering about sizing. Remember I had a pair of 7 hole Maine guides a decade ago and the fit was never quite right.

I’m a 9 in Red Wing, 9.5 or 10 in most trainers
Not sure wether to go UK 9.5 or 10
Thoughts/experiences of sizing appreciated

Yeah I’d always heard down a half size on the Maine Guides. My Hunt boots fit TTS though.

Yuk sizing is the most unreliable of any brand.

Only purchase if you can return.

Yeah I agree. Tried about a pair of their Chukkas in different sizes only to find that none actually fit me.
