One can only wonder is BeachBum incapable of reading or is has he got some undisclosed agenda re Justin? Shoe Snob blog is very inclusive of lots of makers of varied styles and countries of origin. Dedicated to his genuine interest in great shoes. What's to hate about that?!

Only thing to worry about is the size as Barneys say UK 11 US 12 - i bought Manioc Heschung a few weeks back also at great reduction and the box says UK11.5 US12 - i find the UK size is about right ie 11.5 and as such about half size too big. Same situation re the Trembles?
In answer to queries the measurements are pit to pit 23 inches shoulder to shoulder 20 inches sleeve from shoulder 26.5 inches BOC 32 inches
