thanks guys, lots of good advice and i appreciate it
the reason i was asking about sizing from brand to brand difference, is because i already tried on orvis boots on with waders on in store.
but with wading boots, i've seen some good deals online (much better then instore) so i was thinking that i might order a pair online.
but i will check out my local shop that carries multiple brands and hopefully thy have a sale going on.
i did not know about thick socks trick. so i will do that as well.
as mainly i want my waders for cold weather.
because when i fish around So.Cal i just wet wade in my old skate shoes, (have too many, this is just another way to wear through them

ok, so with waders on:
13sz was too big, i could easily fit my thumb behind my ankle and boot
12sz better but i would still slide a finder between back of my ankle and the boot
11st nice snug fit, but i was still able to move my toes and if i tired to slide foot back and forth seems like there were few millimeters of space, so probably for a decent winter sock
btw, when you guys say thick sock, what kind of socks do you use in cold water?
can i use my snowbaording smartwool socks. ? i just never thought they were thick , in snowboard/ski boots you dont want the extra thick layers.?
any links/images as example would be great
