Go with your Sperry size. I wear the same size in Quoddy as I do in Nike. I'd say athletic shoe sizing is about right. I ordered a pair online and was told they run true to size. I had to return them for 1/2 size larger. I suggest ordering the larger size.

I'd like to try the Lap QC, but the only way I can do that here is to buy a bottle, and at $100 that's a bit too much...

Talisker would probably be number 1, HP12 at 2, Crag 12 and Dal 15 tied at 3, Ardbeg at 4. Ask me the same thing in a couple of months and the Crag and Ardbeg will probably be...

For a contrasting point of view, I purchased a pair of CJ shoes from Plal a couple of years ago. The transaction went smoothly and the shoes were arrived in good condition. I purchased another pair, handgrades, shortly thereafter, but they ended up being 1/2 a size too large so I returned them for a smaller size, but they were out of that size and the model was discontinued.

Even the "R" size ones are huge (for the designated sizes). They didn't shrink nearly enough, so I returned mine.

Such a simple proposition, yet I hadn't even realized it. I brushed the hell out of mine...
