yeah josh had a smaller foot, probably a 7 to 7 1/2 sounds right to me. too bad you couldnt try on a bunch of sizes and styles and makes of boots. the 336 could be a very good boot for you i think. good luck, dont know what else to tell you.
The difference in the length of the top of the 297 vs. 336 is approx. 1 1/4 inches. The 336 being shorter, with collar, and ankle padding not found in the 297.
