The fit of boots differs per type, but we can say that each brand has its own (rough) fit. For example, Sidi boots and shoes are quite narrow and Alpinestars is quite wide. Dainese and Forma are exactly in between in terms of fit.
This is a well-known fable, which in our opinion is really completely false. We recommend using the size chart supplied by the manufacturer the find out which size to order.
There is Always one exception of course, it is true for Sidi boots that they are quite small. It can sometimes be smart to order them one size larger (especially if you fall in between sizes on the size chart).
With boots, a distinction is made in roughly 3 types; ventilated, not ventilated and not waterproof, and waterproof. Ventilated boots are perfect for the summer. Non-ventilated boots are good to use in midseason and waterproof boots are of course perfect for the rain, whatever the season. Note: there are no typical "winter boots" that are extra warmly lined! You will have to solve this yourself with warm socks.
Most of the boots and shoes on our website are listed in European sizes. Exceptions are, for example, the Alpinestars sneakers / shoes and motocross boots. These are sold in US sizes. Have a good look at the size chart to see how the US and EU sizes relate to each other.
