This seller told me in an email that the outside length of the shoe was a total of 11", which is what he lists. He had listed these originally as a size 9, then he changed the description to a zize 8. I told him that the outside measurement of my size 9E AE shoes was close to 12" (measured with a ruler from the end of the heel to the tip of the shoe). Same measurement for size 8 1/2 C&J shoe If this is so, how can these shoes be the equivalent of U.S. 9? Please explain-am I measuring incorrectly? Thanks.
StyleStudent - My apologies, I had not read the measurements before I posted my reply. I am a size 9E/EE in AllenEdmonds as well, and I have tried several models from TC in NYC. The best fits came from sizes 7.5, 8, and 8.5 depending on the last. The only pair I own is marked 8M and measures 12"x4.25". Regarding the auction, any one of the following may be true: (1) Seller made mistake in measuring (2) It is a factory second because it has been mislabelled (3) This model (or the market in which it was originally sold) follows a different sizing One thing is for sure, if you do win the auction cheaply and it turns out not to be your size, you'll have plenty of potential buyers on this forum alone.
