If truly a 10.5 Brannock, I'd start with 43.5 first. The UK9 Rain must also be snug? Not sure how you fit in a 8.5 CJ. Maybe you're closer to a Brannock 10.

Dude my brannock sizing is 11USA and this size shoes are huge on me. Most usa shoes I fit in are 9.5 or 10 just depending upon brand & last. So it's not all that crazy to go two size down. In my humble opinion & SA at Nordstrom also said this. Those measuring devices are out dated & not properly callaberated.

I take my brannock size in every normal fitting last, sold by AE or Alden. When I don't, I take one half size down. I'm not talking about the brannock arch length measure, just overall length.

What last do you take at minus 1.5?

Weird. I take a 7.5b in that last, the same as my brannock. A 7 was too short in a narrow width.

Honestly I just had my brannock remeasured yesterday again because I thought this is nuts. But nope same result size 11 according to that & D aka medium width. Was done by SA at Nordstrom & again tried on size 11 shoes. They were too big it was not even funny.

Did they also measure your arch length and do they understand what it means? Heel to ball measurement is much more important than heel to toe.

Well honestly I have no clue how competent the guy was he told me to stand on the scale he looked at it while standing up & gave me round about around size 11. I could be wrong but as a shoe SA he should know about all this. Specially if you are working at Nordstrom shoe department. Or be able to help a person out. My gf ended up getting Nike 5.0 so I didn't feel like I wasted his time. But honest I am not really sure if he knew all that or not.

It's also quite common to have feet that have 1/2 size difference in a Brannock. My right foot is 1/2 larger than my left on a Brannock. Always be conscious of which is your stronger foot when trying new shoes (often means either opting for one shoe that's slightly loose or one that's slight tight).

Also be mindful of what point of the day you try shoes on - feet are larger in the evening than in the morning, so if a shoe is a big snug at night, it may be the right size ; if snug in the morning, it will get worse over the day.
