I think only size 13 is available now. But Land's end now does have the suede chelsea available in a lot of sizes....
I've heard, wrt to the CT boots, that if buying from the US site, it is recommended to drop a half size from the US size. Apparently CT uses the 1/2 drop conversion (i.e., the shoes on the site which is a 10 US is actually a 9.5 UK), and most people find that a full size drop is a better fit.
