THE OFFICIAL "streetwear" BALLER BOOT/SHOE THREAD ***700usd Min*** - Page 795

Recent pickups. The a1923 fit larger than a reverse deerskin version I have. Any suggestions on tightening up the fit? I have a thick insole in there now and have been reading about submerging the shoe in water and sun drying. Obviously treat with conditioner afterwards to prevent cracking, I'm scared to do this for what it might do to the dye. Eh, I'll try to live with the insole and thick socks.

Its much easier to stretch a shoe than it is to make it smaller. Its possible the menthol you mentioned above would work but there is a risk of ruining the shoe. Submerging the show would mean the whole shoe including interior would soak in water. It may develop a rotting smell if not dried throughly.

I think insole is your best bet and try to deal with the sizing. Otherwise just sell them and get something else.

What size are you? What size are the shoes?

I don't know which piece you're referring to, Abraxis, but this coming A/W is a killer season from Devoa. Interesting buy from HLorenzo.

 

@ysb the strap sneakers are notoriously large. You got two options: deal with it or sell them. If you don't like the fit you'll never reach for them.

My recent Lost & Found boot acquisition. The 43 is definitely more like a 44 fit is good boot quality is amazing. I would compare this to ma+ easily in fact i think they used the same factory.

Texture is a different on the boots the 43 are a bit more rough and are clearly reverse leather the 44 are more on the smooth finish side.

I really like the boots and was not sure on sizing.

But not enough like to keep either, even though the 43 is in your size

i am most likely keeping the 43 but if someone were to give me a good offer i may consider parting with them hence the IC. There is something i already ordered and extra funds for it won't hurt.

Not true. You don't need to be bitter the 43 would not have fit you anyways. I bought 43 and 44 because i thought there is a chance of the boot not fitting. I was right the 43 fit me well and is a true 11.
