Hi all, here is a pic of my new Maine Guide Boots in cerise (8.5 E). They look wonderful in cerise color with that yellow tongue. It was the only model and only size available from this italian ebayer. I am an 8.5 D in Red Wing (Iron Ranger/875) and in Alden (Barrie last). Probably a 9 in these would have been a bit spacier, but I remembered what larryr wrote in this forum a few pages back so I bought them:
The heel slippage definitely lessens a great deal after they are worn in, I remember it being pretty annoying when i first started to wear them.
I also remember them being very tight width wise, now they fit like a glove.
Also in mine, while length is ok, I have a bit of heel slippage and I feel them a bit tight width wise but I am confident that they will fit great after some wearing. Anyway I couldn't miss the bargain, as I paid only 120 € ($155) for these when european prices are over 450 € ($580)!
