I'm a 10.5 US (mainly for width) and a 9.5 Bourton is still a little loose. I can generally swing a 10 UK with insoles, usually. But the "country" Tricker's are supposedly a half-size larger than regular ones. I may even be able to do a 9 in Bourtons. Unclear what collection these are from. The colors are off from UK offerings, too... Here's my freshly purchased (used) Bourtons in antique marron. A classic shade, like acorn... I don't see either of them on the site.
Regardless, a great deal. Just the shipping from the UK is killer -- about 20 pounds. Even if you score a pair of cheap Loakes, it adds up
