Curious. I have GAT lows in a 43 are roomy but worn laceless. Mids fit perfectly. Lanvin highs in a 9 feel comparatively snug but in a comfortable way. Maybe they are narrower with all the padding or something? I will have to investigate this tomorrow, but it does sound like I will be able to make the new additions work.
Either way, if someone has some nice boots they need gone, and wants the black Rick dunks with white sole holla at me.
