  • PLEASE NOTE: Belleville boots are about ½ to 1 full size larger in fit than your normal shoe size depending on the type of boot you choose (hot weather vs. waterproof/insulated). In many cases, we have found our hot weather boots run about 1 size larger than your normal shoe size; however, boots containing a GORE-TEX® bootie may require only ½ size smaller than your normal size for a proper fit. This does not apply to Women's boots.

  • 5 out of 5 I read they are one size larger, and in the reviews, some guys said they got one size larger and the boots were still roomie inside, but ok. so since I wear a size 12 mostly and sometimes a size 11.5 if they are wide enough, as I am between those two sizes and have wide feet. I decided to try 10.5W and the fit was perfect, even with boot socks, they are so comfortable and this from a guy who wears flip flops all the time and doesn't even like wearing shoes and I just can't take these off, the best boots ever.

  • 5 out of 5 I was issued the Belleville 390's from RFI in 2004, used them through a year in Iraq. they endured everything from wrenching in the motorpool, to sloshing through fuel puddles pulling security after an IED put holes in my fuel tanks, they held up. awesome boot. they just don't quit.

  • 4 out of 5 I usually wear size 10 and 10 1/2 depending on shoe company, i bought some Belleville 300 DES ST boots at a size 9R and they still felt really large, i found a pair of Belleville 300 TROP ST boots that were size 8 1/2 wide and they fit perfectly, the next pair of Belleville boots that i will purchase will be the 390 DES boots and I will give some size 8 1/2 wide boots a try. Even though my current boots are slightly too large, they are still comfortable to wear and have a very stable gait to them even with the tread starting to wear down from continuous use, i have even found them to be good for running in beng solid but light weight for standard boots. Good Job Belleville.

  • 2 out of 5 I want to give these boots good review I do. The 390 DES is one of the only boots available in a Narrow civilian side, which is a plus. The boots however have been nothing but issues. Let me start by saying they are comfortable, though stiff at first. My first pair had the sole fail by just pulling it out if the box. Luckily Tacticalgear got me a new pair no troubles, so kudos to them. My second pair has developed stitches failing on a couple of spots on the left boot in a matter of weeks. Now this is just being used in my civilian loading job, I would hate to have to be deployed with these boots given how quickly the stitching is failing the left boot. I have an email in to Belleville, but so far 2/2 boots have had quality control and durability issues.

  • 3 out of 5 I have ordered 3 pairs now. 1st was 1/2 size smaller than my normal size (as was suggested in many other reviews) and was way too big. 2nd pair was a whole size smaller and was still slipping like crazy in the heel. 3rd is in the mail and is a whole size and a half smaller than I wear. Will review when I can actually get a pair that fits. Change the sizing standard maybe?

  • 4 out of 5 These boots hurt quite a bit for the first 2-3 days I worn them, due to the fact this is the first time in 3-4 years I've worn issued styled boots, but after the first week they became more comfortable than my nikes and bates I have been wearing. They do great in the field offering great support and durability. Also they clean up nicely. Most don't think about that but getting out of the field Friday and knowing you have Monday in ranks inspection, it's pretty nice knowing that these boots clean up and look good fast even after being covered in mud and god knows what else. Only down side is even though they are one of the only boots that come in narrow width, when I lace them up the eyelets still over lap each other due to my narrow feet.

  • 5 out of 5 Its been a year since I got these. I wear them all day, everyday. My feet are spoiled now and even my running shoes make my feet hurt after a couple of hours. I wear 11 in street shoes - that's a 10 in Bellevilles 390. Traction is great, fit is great, they are holding up fantastic. Mine have been wet and dry numerous times, rough terrain, long road marches, and have had to sleep in them a time or two. Great boots. Get some, you will be happy you did.

  • 4 out of 5 Regarding sizing, I had to go a full 1.5 sizes down (not just 1), and that even includes orthotics. The midsole required a bit of bending to break it to avoid vertical rubbing on my heel. Other than that, great boots. Been going on day hikes, breaking them (and me) in for a bigger hiking trip planned for later this summer.

  • 3 out of 5 this was my first pair of boots and i got them for rookdom at norwich. so mostly garrison with some occasional field work with mcw. they lasted pretty well but it's clear they wont survive much past next semester if they survive this summer. the back strip that runs from the collar to the heal has come unstiched and almost detached. they didn't need to be broken in per say, but never quit fit right and i mostly just wearing them to class. held up well through some tests but not great.

  • 4 out of 5 Went on 3 and 4 mile hikes straight out of the box. One of the most comfortable boots I've worn. Would give it 5 stars if I'd owned them longer and could judge how they will hold up. They appear to be very well made. Easy to lace. I wear 8 1/2 is most shoes but the 8 fit perfect. Excellent boot at a decent price.

  • 5 out of 5 One pair of these boots survived all the seasons of Korea (in the mountains at Camp Casey) for two years straight, and are now tearing through the deserts of Fort Bliss. Great traction where ever I go, no hot spots when rucking, never had a blister with these things on, and they even hold up pretty well in the winter. Only thing I would improve is a bit more ankle support... All together a great boot though, 5 out of 5, no doubt worth every cent.

About Belleville

Its first military boots contract was awarded during World War I, and Belleville has been outfitting the troops with some of the finest footwear ever since. In the beginning, it manufactured straightforward, uncomplicated shoes and boots.

Belleville boots tend to run a full size large. We recommend ordering a full size down. This means if you wear a size 10, you should order a size 9. Women's boots run true to size.

Belleville does offer many boot styles that are specifically manufactured for women. If a particular style of boot is not available in women’s sizes, we recommend ordering the boot 2 full sizes smaller.
