So, I just got home and had some time to walk around a bit with the both shoes on and, while it's still a bit tight, the shoes have loosened and I think 43 is still probably the right choice. I think a 44 would have fit me as well but I may have needed a small insole.

I use these with C Diem and MA+ boots. They're great. Provide some decent support and definitely don't impact size too much.post #21291 of 222796/10/16 at 11:50ampost #21292 of 222796/10/16 at 5:15pmpost #21293 of 222796/10/16 at 5:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by Pairate
Does anyone have experience with Pedag Viva insoles? Realizing I need something for heel and arch support. Unless I size up, I'm having trouble fitting normal insoles in my boots.
Yes. I like these over Tacco now since they're a bit more narrow and wont distort your boots instep. The half length ones are good too if you need heel/arch support but your toebox is already maxed.post #21294 of 222796/10/16 at 5:28pmQuote:
+1 for the half lengths, i use them in my ccp derbies in lieu of the provided insole. actually, the ones i use are just a heel padpost #21295 of 222796/10/16 at 6:59pmpost #21296 of 222796/10/16 at 11:14pmpost #21297 of 222796/10/16 at 11:42pmQuote:Originally Posted by sinnedk

I'm looking for sz 43 a1923 combats if anyone has a lead. I'm in the middle of an after-sale, wrong product delivered, disaster on what would have been a great grailed deal for a pair. That situation seems to have gone south so now I'm on the hunt again once I get my funds back.post #21298 of 222796/10/16 at 11:50pmQuote:Originally Posted by psydle

Insole and those 44 would work for you...post #21299 of 222796/11/16 at 12:00am
combats, 10" height and 43 is a snug fit that I prefer in a laceup since I can leave the laces loose. Going back to the insole discussion, I far prefer to add a half insole just to get me the arch support and heel cupping since my foot length is more of a 43.5 than an 11. Once my original release, 2010-11 era a1923 sz 43 dual zips ( opposite side zippers in really rough culatta, no rounded heel cup) broke-in, they are some of the most comfortable boots in my collection just with a pedag half in there. That boot is really what I joined this forum in search of initially after buying an oversized 44 at Atelier simply because they were so hardened through the toe that I coudn't tell how they were going to break in.
Anyway, I want a snug fitting tall combat from a1923 now which for me is a 43. I'm keeping an eye on some options but the deal I though I'd locked in already was pretty damn baller. I've had really terrible luck with bad sellers in the last few months actually. The market is apparently awash with assholes. I was shipped a pair of rihanna x puma fenty creepers and some random person somewhere has the a1923 that I actually bought. That was a shitty shock when opening the box.post #21300 of 222796/11/16 at 8:23am
Finally got a chance to wear my new 992s out yesterday. My first foray with donkey leather and I have to say I'm very happy with them. Holger had/has these in horse but I wanted something a bit lighter for the warmer weather.
I got these from Calculus, which is Graham from Re-porter's new retail store in Victoria, Canada. He's a great guy and provides incredible customer service. His selection of designers is refreshingly slim but speaks to the time, care and personal connection he has towards what he stocks.
