Thanks. I actually already got my billing answer from George. He said they are basically being made to order right now and they need to be billed when the pre-order is made, for that reason and because their system does not allow for delayed billing (understandable)
Thanks for the size comparison as well. The confusion arose for me in the earlier post where someone said they sized down as they do with Alden. (I don't own any Alden so I don't know the comparison)
My foot is not wide, if anything a bit narrow. Since I can't try on the Oak Street boots in person, I want to get this right the first time.
I recently bought an incredible pair of Yuketen's in my regular size (9) and they have some heel slip when worn sockless - not like sandals or anything, they work, but a half size down would have been ideal.
George seems to think I could go with an 8.5, but I'd hate to wait 6 weeks for these and find out they are too small. I may ask him for measurements of the length of the shoe to make sure an 8.5 isn't too small.
Lawlercon - do you/have you worn Sperry Top-siders? I'm true to size in Sperry with a 9 and maybe that would be the best comparison someone could give me.
If anyone has experience with this, and wears a 9 in Sperry, for instance and a 9 in Oak Street that would be helpful.
Thanks again so much.

I'm working on getting you an answer to the billing question.
Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
