I just received a new pair of Epsom brogues from Shoehealer, and am hoping the forum experts might be able to assist me in clearing up a mystery.
Last year, I purchased a pair of Epsom in Marron from the Tricker's factory ebay store. (Size 8 1/2, listed as last 6038 L, and Fitting 5.) They are stunning, fit perfectly, and inspired me to now purchase an identically sized pair in Espresso.
That pair arrived today, in ostensibly the same size, last, and fitting, but are noticeably smaller. As in, so much smaller that they are rather uncomfortable to wear!
What on earth could lead to something like this?
Attached is a picture of both shoes, pressed evenly against a baseboard. I swear that the hideous rug is not mine, and hope that it does not dissuade you from helping me.
Any and all assistance would be appreciated, considering that I am utterly baffled and disappointed.
