I love Mephisto hiking boots. The first pair that I purchased I purchased it in Singapore in 1993 when I was working there. That pair lasted about 15 years and I purchased my second pair 14 years ago in France and they are now worn out so I purchased the Ranus Tex in grey in size 8 US. When I received them, I tried them on and they were just too tight to wear. I contacted your office and was told that I could return them at my cost. I did that and wrote on the packing that I wanted a size 8.5US and also requested them in the color blue. When I received them the box said that they were 8.5US but the tag on the shoe says they were a size 8US. I tried them on and they fit much better than the first pair that I received. I am very confused about this. Is there that much difference in the manufacturing of the shoe or were they just tagged wrong? I am trying to decide whether I should send them back or not. I wore them in the house today for 11 hours and they appeared to be fine. I really don’t want a pair that is too big as it is a tripping hazard and I will be hiking in the Rocky Mountains in a month. I will try them tomorrow and see how they work out. Any advice that you can give me would be appreciated.
