I received my black calf sharp brogues and brown calf semi brogues.
I usually wear 9.5 US for Allen Edmonds and Polo (and strangely enough 9 US for mostly Italian brands).
I ordered 8.5 UK. Whoever it was, thank your for the advice to go down 1 UK size. The fit is good, if not superlative (I don't think another size would work). There is a bit of room around the toes and the heels, but the width is pretty close to right. There is little slippage.
The shoes look nice and are moderate quality, at best, I think. The workmanship is uneven, and there are some rough patches here and there. I would definitely place these below Allen Edmonds in quality, but perhaps somewhat better in styling.
I would definitely NOT pay $300 a pair, probably not even $150. At $85 a pair, I think I did well. They will be everyday shoes, obviously. But they do make me wonder how CT ever sells them at regular prices.
