If you are in a store, ask a Clothing Area Specialist if you need help figuring out the best option for you.
Below are the multiple widths you’ll often find next to sizes options on boot boxes or on
B – Narrow
D- “Normal” width – Medium
EE – Wide
EEE – Extra wide

Many boot styles come in generic sizing too such as:
M = “Normal” but could run narrow or wider depending on the brand.
W = Wide but can be EE to EEE depending on the boot, or somewhere in between.


Ladies’ fashion and work boots are offered in a size range specific to each style. Most styles are offered in half-size increments. The majority of women’s boots are only available in standard widths, which is indicated by the letter “B”, as an example 7.5B. Some brands do offer wider widths in women’s boots. This width designation would be “C”, as in 7.5C.
Ladies’ Romeos are sold in standard and wide widths. The size will be followed by a “W” for a wide width, and an “M” for standard women’s width.

Boot sizing for children is a little bit different than adult sizing. As with adult boots, the size range offered for each style will vary. Kid’s boots are only available in one standard width.

Category Size Range
Infant 0-4
Toddler 4.5-8
Children’s 8.5-3
Youth 3.5-7

Some styles of children’s boots such as the Georgia Little Kid’s Carbo Tec Boot have Room-2-Grow Insoles that will let your little one grow up to half a shoe size and let them get the most wear out of their boots.
