Sorry, I double checked and my MMM Gats are actually a 42.

How do I know this? I owned the boots- didn't like how easily the leather marked and discolored itself.

Thanks for the info. Since darkening is inevitable, any advice on what I could use for water proofing the boots - maybe Invulner? I'll look into the Renovateur for conditioning.

Does anyone know if they make Virgil's small enough to fit women? My wife would like a pair but I'm assuming they don't go down to a men's 5 or 6.

I know they have fbt's for women, so they probably make Virgil's. I try one of the Japanese proxies

Thanks for the info. Sounds like I should keep an eye on resale sites and look for them during spring and fall drop.

Hey Guys interested in picking up some grizzly just wanted advice on sizing normally i'm a 9.5  I found a second hand 10 for about $200 below retail really want to pull the trigger. I am just concerned that I will be sacrificing fit for price

Hi All. Recently bought a pair of the FBT Elk. Really love them! Just wondering how they hold up in the rain? Don't plan to get them drenched, but if I get caught out in the rain will they be ok? Or should I spray the leather with some water repellent? I'd rather not apply anything unless I need to. Thanks!

I put repellent on mine.
