Zappos posts wrong shoes size conversions?

I ordered my first ever pair of Doc Martens, so I would have comfy combat boots for the cruise. Clicky to check them out.

Zappos said to order a UK size 6 if I'm an American size 8 (they don't make half sizes, and I would prefer 7 1/2). The shoes arrived only two days after I ordered them, but they are so huge that even insoles and thick socks won't make them fit. So I googled to find a European shoe conversion chart and discovered that Zappos mislead me. I should have ordered a size 5 if I'm a 7 1/2. Lucky for me, Zappos pays the shipping when I return them.


I know you hate to pay a lot of money for stuff, but for what it's worth, these worked very well for me with my Docs (and every other shoe - but HUGE difference in comfort and fit with the Docs):


The insoles are 30 bucks per pair, but they will not fail you.
