Btw, I hope some of you opted for a 7.5UK/8US in case my 8UK/8.5US are too large.

What size do you wear normally?

My chestnut calf derby shoes arrived yesterday. I wear a US 10. I ordered a UK 9.5. They're a little bit big. I visited CT's 7th Avenue store in New York and learned that CT is completely sold out of the chestnut derbies in UK 9.

So I think what I'm going to do is keep the UK 9.5 shoes and try to get insoles for them to snug them up a bit. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding insoles? I remember seeing posts about the high quality of Allen-Edmonds' insoles, but I didn't know if those insoles work only with AE shoes. Any information about how I can make these slightly-too-big derbies work for me would be much appreciated.

My brown calf semi-brogues arrived today, and lucky me, they seem to fit. (I say "seem" because I wore a pair of SmartWool cycling socks to work today (don't ask) which have a slightly thicker heel than my normal wool, over-the-calf socks, so I can't be certain that they maybe won't be a little loose with normal socks. Still, even if they are, it would only be a tad bit, which I think I can live with.)

FWIW, I ordered a UK8, but since I have no idea what my normal shoe size is, I guess that's not worth too much. In running shoes, I pretty consistently wear a US9.5, but in non-running shoes, I'm all over the map: a pair of Tod's in 9, a pair of Peluso for To Boot NY in 8.5, a pair of Bruno Maglis in 8, and a pair of Pradas in 7(! but I picked these up in Florence, so I have no idea what the 7 is supposed to mean; there's no European size for comparison, unfortunately).

Can't help you with the insoles but can help you if you want to sell them!

I'm fairly familiar with insoles, as I often find myself between a 9 and 9.5 in AE and the like. There are several good options. I most often use ProFoot's "Magic" insoles, available at most any department store/pharmacy for less than $10. They'll reduce the overall volume of the shoe very effectively, but for that reason I'd be careful with them in balmorals. They're also very comfortable, molding to the feet nicely and adding a bit of arch support.

Most of my shoes, dress and casual, are 9US. The last pair of Kenneth Coles (I know, I know...pre-SF-discovery) I tried on at 9US were a tad loose at the heel but the pair at 8.5US were too rough on the toes.

Got my order today. Brown semibrogues and tan chukka boots both 7.5F and last 026. The semibrogues are a very good fit out of the box (wearing dress socks) but the tan chukka boots feel looser and somewhat long. Yet placing one shoe of each pair against the other, I can see they are the same length and width. Could this be reflection of the different lacing styles? Or should I be wearing thicker socks with the boots? (I had planned these as spring/summer wear and had hoped to wear lightweight socks) Also, the tan boots have darker striations on the leather, especially in the front. Is this some sort of antiquing or grounds for return?

What size do you normally wear in US? Excuse my ignorance, but the 7.5F...is that UK Wide?

F is usually a medium to a medium wide in the UK, and can be equivalent to a D or E in the US. it really depends on the brand, as there is no bureau of universal shoe sizes at the united nations.

I wear an 8.5D in Allen Edmonds. The semibrogue is a really good fit in all ways but length. It is a bit long but this is very managable since all else fits well. I am still sorting out the chukka boots.

How about matching your shirt? Blue socks with a blue shirt, for example. (Not white, of course.)

Grey is a no-brainer.
Navy or Burgundy could be great depending on the rest of the outfit
Bottle green could also look nice with chestnut and grey. Again, depending on the rest of the outfit

Postman knocked on the door and handed it to me.
