Determining size for boots

So I am looking to purchase a pair of sports boots for one of my paints. I noticed they come in different sizes. I have read you want to make sure they fit just right otherwise they can do more harm than good. How do you determine what size you need?

I just put a piece of cardboard under each foot and traced around it...then I took that to the tack shop.

She's talking sports/splint boots Mazza, not hoof boots. Amanda, my personal opinion of 'sports boots' is little. I don't believe they do much if anything & can potentially increase shock & strain depending how they're fit. If too tight or they rub anywhere, that can be a problem too. As for how to fit those, length is the thing - measure from the bottom of your horse's fetlock, to just below his knee.
