I saw the same boots a while back and made a note the next pair would be mine!
But, no point getting the wrong size just to wish they fitted you better.
If they were an 8 I'd be wearing them by now. I have some Allan's already in 8 and they are fine, but thought they are the 4497 last? Might have to check, now! I didn't mention them by name at the time as I wanted to keep them quiet while I did my research! Not that it was hard to figire it out!
Didn't fancy the black - got enough brogues.
