I had the same problem with Lanvin. I went to Holts twice last week (Bloor and Yorkdale) and tried on a 10 and 9 each time. Both times the 10 was about .5 too big (a little over a finger of excess space) and the 9 was about .5 too small to the point of being uncomfortable. I decided to order a 10 online and use an insole but when they arrived I was surprised, I don't know if they corrected the sizing, are sized different for the european market, or if the shoes at Holts were stretched but they fit absolutely perfect. I've ordered two pairs now and they both fit perfect, drastically different from the 4 different colors I tried on at HR.
I think I'm going to try my luck with a 44 in GATs, too bad it seems like I missed all the sales
If anyone comes across a white or brown 44 on sale let me know
