Whats the best way for working out what size boot to buy when using rectangle/square/wedge shaped & other non round sockets like the one in the link below?

You could measure/calculate the circumference and compare it to the pre-shrink and post-shrink circumference of the boot.

Circumference of a circle is Diameter x 3.14 .

Circumference of a rectangle is 2 x Width + 2 x Height.

Thanks, I will give that a try!
