Chippewa boots are listed in US sizes. As an example a size 8 D US is marked as 41.5 European and 26 Japanese. They are similar to UK sizing but fit about a half size smaller so 8 US feels very similar to 7.5 UK standard sizing. For comparison a size 8 in Chippewa fits similar to:
Red Wing 8.5 US
White’s 7.5 D
John Lofgren 8
Alden 7.5-8 D Barrie Last
