I jumped on the 10.5 over the weekend. Wanted something better for long walks than my dress mocs. I went to look at some Quoddy's that were on sale near me for a taller boot, but the construction style just didn't interest me as much as Yuks.
The mocs will give a lot in my experience, I have the dress mocs, which were pretty tight at first, but really loosened up in the mid foot with some good wear. Still not completely broken in, but its in no way uncomfortable.
If you can find Kamik near where you are, they''re a better bet http://www.kamik.com/GenfootWeb/servlet/webProductDisplay.webProductDisplaySrv?currentMode=DETAIL&curCatalog=2010&curSeason=WINTER2010&curRow=7 Roots also has the same boot http://canada.roots.com/RootsKamikWinterBootMen/MensShoes//15020125,default,pd.html?cgid=shoesMensBoots&selectedColor=001 but it has a roots logo on the side. Kamik is basically Sorel before the international buy out. After they stopped...
They have differing lines and price point. Avoid the made in china stuff as construction tends to be shoddy. The made in mexico ones are much better. I have a pair of made in mexico pull on boots, no distressing, no stupid stuff, leather sole. Very comfortable boots. The main reason I got them was they were at Neiman Marcus Outlet for nearly 90% off. The original sticker was over $600, I paid about $70. No complaints about construction or quality, but no way I would...

Then again, not everyone...

Its definitely style specific, theres no way most NDC's 44+11.5. I wear 10.5-11, and usually start with a 44 given euro size options. I fit 44 in most NDC, although I have experienced some fitting larger, however I think it has to the general shape of the shoe rather than just style by style. Longer/more pointed toe fit slightly larger than the rounded toe shape in my experience.
You can't even buy Uniqlo online in the US. Not that it matters, I'm from Canada currently living in the UK, and I can tell you that the only way I can actually get my hands on any of the decent products is by going to London, and going into one of their stores. Their online store, at least for the UK, is nothing short of terrible. It works only if you know exactly what you want, exactly in the size, and really only if you've seen the product in person, because you...
