Just a note; a lot of people won't accept your mondopoint size when they ask for you boot size though, so always have the US/UK ("normal") size handy.

They must have changed combat boot sizing since the mid 80's.

My normal shoe size is 9 1/2 or 10 depending on the width of the shoe

But the best fitting pair of combat boots I had were 7 1/2 - 8 E. And that was with both a cotton athletic sock and the issue grey wool sock on my foot.
It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

There is no God, and life is just a myth.

Yup. Wore 8 1\2 E combat boots my entire career. All my other footwear is size 10.

Boot sizes

So I am helping out my daughters Navy league corp, unpacking some new uniform stuff from Logistik, the parade boots do not have normal sizes on them, besides the NSN, they have numbers like 225/86. Does anyone have a chart to assist in interpreting their ancient Greek formulas to what us normal people use? Thanks

Hopefully this helps, its from the logistik website based off of the oxford shoe.
I just copy and pasted into the excel spreadsheet.

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. - Colin Powell
