Maybe this is an old thing I've just picked up on but wondering if anyone else has noticed.
I'm trying to buy a new pair of football boots. I have a pair of Nikes size 7.5UK and marked as EU42.
I try on a pair of size 8UK Adidas - Also marked EU42.
Mizuno label a 7.5UK an EU 41, New Balance label a 7.5UK a EU 41.5!
So 3 different companies mark 7.5UK a 41, 41.5 and a 42 EU. Nike and Adidas recon a 7.5 and 8 are both EU42 - whos correct?
Is there no standard measurement for shoes/boots? Is this like the whole womens' clothing issues brought up a few years ago where one shops size 10 is another shops size 14?
