It is interesting that my feet too are 27 cm long and 24 cm at ball of the foot and with a 10 cm width. I have come to realize that a 9D and a 9.5C both work for me. However White's in the 9D on the SD last without a cap toe visually appear too short and stubby, a look that I do not like. So for now I am going to order a 9.5C for boots without a cap toe and a 9D for boots with a cap toe.
Interesting there are three of us here with about the same size foot! Do I see a boot swap circle going on!!??
That's cool that you can swap between the two sizes to tailor your look, but I have to ask; wouldn't it be better to get the 'right' size each time? What is that right size? I have Red Wings in 9D and they cut up the back of my foot.

Those bison and rough out are very very nice!!
Yeah, for better or worse I always wear thin cotton socks, so those measurements are with socks. But the socks are about as thin as they come. My vote for the northwest last is get the 9.5C - I'm presuming that this last is sized the same as all others...

Not to be contrary Louie, but my understanding is that a double leather sole is the same as a single midsole single outsole. My understanding also is that you cannot get a 'triple' leather sole, i.e single midsole on top of two more leather outsoles.

Again great looking boot, @gregornz
Yup, it's annoying when you want to see updates and they never come. I will update! I have no idea how this bison is going age... It already looks kind of distressed, so I'll be interested to see!
Can anyone advise me on care for the bison leather? It's an oil tanned leather, right? I'm thinking just obenaufs LP twice a year of as needed and a good brushing each wear...?
