I wear an 8.5 in desert boots. Got an 8.5 pair of GTs. They are huge on me. There's almost an inch between the tips of my toes and the front of the toe box. And I keep reading they are narrower? Uh no.
I'm kind of ticked. I spend 3 hours going through this thread and it backfires.

try before you buy.

I think revolve.com has them, and I believe for first time customers they have a 30% discount. From what I've read, you buy your item at the listing price then call them/e-mail indicating that you are a first timer and they apply the discount.

Hi everyone. Been wearing my 9011s for about three years, recently put some Vibram Christy soles on there to change up the look from the originals. Looks great and I'll put up a pic later. It's actually crazy looking here because I consulted this very thread while I was researching three years ago.

I thought right now I'd mention something I noticed as I read through the thread. The tan-coloured midsole is NOT wood, but leather. I'm only mentioning it because it seems like even a few people who actually own these boots have this misconception. Thanks!

you scoured the internet for the cheapest price and you are accusing them of cutting costs?

I really want to see pictures of the Christy sole. I'm due for a resole and have thought about going that route.

Also, if you want to talk misconceptions, I've got one that drives me nuts: If you use an insole in these boots, you're doing it wrong. The hard leather will eventually conform to your foot, and be far more comfortable and durable than all but the best custom-made orthotic insert.

Note the wood starting to split in the sole.

That's not wood; it's stacked leather

So it's not really splitting, since it was never whole

That is true. I did it with a pair of lvc jeans and they did take 30% off after I called. Only thing is they sent me the wrong size so I called and asked if I could use the 30% off on another order that they said yes. Just about ready to order either the cigar and black cherry gt's with the discount.
