I bought a pair last week in Paris and I usually wear size 8 in shoes from UK makers. I found size 8 in Loding to be a tad bigger/wider than I am accustomed to so I bought a size 7.5. After having worn them for 2 days I find them too snug so I probably should have stayed with my original size.
How can you look too well after shoes? ;-)They have seen some abuse though. I once stripped them entirely because I spilt some olive oil on them. I just gave them a good polish this afternoon that is why they are shining happily in the pictures above.
