Looking for some advice regarding sizing...
I just took delivery of a pair of Shannons from a fellow member and am wondering if the fit looks off. I don't have too much experience with balmoral boots and was expecting the gap in the lacing to be smaller. These are 9E on the 82 last and I take UK9 in most lasts by other makers (e.g. Carmina Rain/Inca/Forest, C&J 341, Trickers W2298). They feel just a tad bit snug but not uncomfortably so. I think I'd be swimming in a 9.5. Perhaps I should try a 9F... Anyway, here are some fit pics (Vass F in 43 for comparison):
Most importantly it all depends on how you and your feet feel, if the shoes fit and are comfortable then they are fine for you.
Enjoy and thanks for sharing.
