Thanks, but let's say your "true" size in one of these Ferragamo drivers is 8.5 but due to the design/last, the 8 fits nice and snugly too. Would having your toes a bit farther up the toe box drastically increase the wear and tear?   I fear I may have marked my new drivers for an early grave.
I've got a serious question about shoe sizing, particularly for elongated european lasts. Back when I was mostly wearing AE shoes, I was typically a 9D. Shoe buying was simple then. I found, one day, while purchasing some Church's single monks in a longer last, the 7.5E (UK) fit me more comfortably than anything I'd previously owned.

I've got a stack of $100 Zappos gift cards that I bought with Chase points. And then they didn't have my size available. Looking to liquidate.  Buy one, or all.   1 each for $92.50 shipped.   If you buy all 6, I can do $550 flat.   Currently available: 6     PM Me if interested.
My recent purchase now has me wondering, how does one care for a woven leather shoe? I imagine a cleaner/conditioner and a good brushing is about all one can do...
