CLARKS Ankle Boots - sizing question

I plan on ordering a couple pairs of tomorrow's TSV.  I own a ton of Clarks shoes, but only one pair of ankle boots.  I wear a size 6.5 or 7 medium normally.  Would anyone suggest ordering a wide for ankle boots?  I live in the South so I don't usually wear thick socks or anything.  I just wondered what part of the boot is "wider"..... toe box? heel? Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

I wear a 7 medium and sometimes 71/2 medium.  I ordered these early and ordered a 7 medium which fit but my toe was right at the end of the shoe.  I returned them and ordered a 71/2 medium and they fit great. I never wear a wide shoe size.  hope this helps.  oh and the boots are really nice!--Lisa

Thank you, Lisa!  That's exactly what I needed.  I will order a 7 medium then.  I love the Navy and Burgundy.  What color(s) did you order?  And are they comfortable around the ankle area when you walk?  Thanks!!

I ordered my normal size that I usually get in Clarks but after reading a lot of the reviews saying to go with a WIDE width because they seem to be running narrow I ordered a WIDE and a medium width.  I too found that they seemed narrow and I never wear a WIDE shoe.  I kept the WIDE width ones and returned the medium width ones. 

They are really comfortable and nice looking.  So much so that I ordered 2 more pair.  I got the Navy, Grey and the Black. 

Edited to say that I tried them on with a thin sock.

I bought the Clarks Nikki North ankle boots a couple years ago which are a similar style as this TSV. I normally wear a 7.5 medium and that's what I ordered and they fit me perfectly.  I'm thinking of picking up a pair of this TSV since I've gotten a lot of wear out of the Nikki North.

I can't help you with this particular boot, but last year I purchased the Clark's "Whistle" shoe/boot from QVC.  They are very similar in looks and design to this boot (had a bit of suede at the top).  Bought my normal 7-1/2 medium,, and it was a perfect fit.

I love the burgundy ones but I decided to go for the black.  they are very comfortable even around the ankles when you walk--lookiing forward to cooler weather so I can wear them  enjoy!--Lisa

Re: CLARKS Ankle Boots - sizing question

I am a 7.5M, but I ordered 8M because the last pair of Clark's (loafers) were so short in my regular size, my big toes bumped the ends.

 

I am on the fence with these. They are beautiful-looking, but they feel wide in the heel cup. Then again, I am running into that problem with most shoes I try on. With thin socks, they are just a little bit loose (not uncomfortable...just super roomy). I am debating whether or not to go down to 7.5. I just never know what to buy in Clark's. The pebbled leather, btw, is awesome!

Re: CLARKS Ankle Boots - sizing question

When we visit DH's family at Thanksgiving, we always go for walks in the woods. Years ago I got boots made specifically for that, but I don't wear them any other places! I thought these would be perfect for that and for other things!

 

From what others have posted and the reviews I've read, I ordered two sizes: my regular size in wide and 1/2 size larger in my regular medium. I really hope one of them works! ***crossing fingers***

Re: CLARKS Ankle Boots - sizing question

Thanks, everyone, for your comments and input.  After all that, I went with my normal size of 6.5 medium.  I had decided to order up 1/2 size, but they said during many of the presentations not to order a wide or to size up because they're generous.  I ordered burgundy and navy and can't wait to get them.  Fingers crossed they fit!!
