I'm a 43.5, so from the description in the original listing I'm not sure.  If it helps, my ideal in US sizes (mostly Allen Edmonds) is 10E, or also 10.5D.  Subject to a best guess, I'm interested.  Some great looking shoes.

They were more of a 43. Already got a couple of people lined up though.

OK, thanks for the reply and best of luck.  If they're too small for you I expect they would be for me too.

I have this same RLPL SC and love it. Made by Caruso and has more of an RLBL cut. Reasonable BIN--saw the same coat (used) sell on auction for around $600 almost exactly a year ago:

Some of the nicest shoes ever made in the US, unfortunately a tough size to fit. Perhaps for a 6D who likes a long sleek look? shog[1].gif

those are torture... especially for the wearer! 5A is just so typical of 1940's and earlier footwear.

Nice find. Got one of these for my partner with trees for <$400 which was a screaming deal. Great looking shoes. This is still a good deal!

yep. I can only imagine the reason behind so many NOS shoes in such narrow widths is because virtually no one can wear such sizes so they remained unsold/unworn, or perhaps those who could wear such a size stocked up while the getting was good!

common misconception. Actually, MOST of the shoes from those eras (20's thru early 40's) were made in more narrow sizes. People had more narrow feet... and fit was KING here. Today, even at high end shoe stores, many people will measure foot size by length... but skip the width altogether. I was in Nordstrom and the salesman didn't even know how to work the width measurement on a brannock!

During high school is the 60s I started buying my own shoes. At that time I wore a 10.5A with a AAA heel.
