That's me personally. I wear size 10 in most sneakers, 9.5 in Alden Indys, etc. and 10 in almost all Yuketens with the exceptions listed above. I have Country Rangers in size 10D and they don't feel very snug (and they're too new to have stretched yet). That's my experience.

I definitely shouldn't have sized down, but I saw a few sources saying I should and 11s weren't in stock (I'm 11D for just about everything, a bit on the wider side). My first online shoe buying blunder, hopefully I've learned my lesson. Have your other yuketens stretched much (assuming you have any in a similar type of leather)?

all is not lost, go to any good cobbler and they can stretch it for you. Basically, they spray the leather with a solution that relaxes the leather so its easier to stretch, then they put in a stretcher. They can stretch the length, width, in step, or opening of the shoe. Obviously there is a limit, so take your shoes and get their opinion on how far they can take it

Thanks, that's probably what I'll do.

Recently found a pair of Yuketen's online and was wondering about their sizing. Im a 7.5 in red wings, wolverine 1kmile, and a 8 in sperrys. so would i be a 8 in yuketen?

got these last year

post #1837 of 2002
In case anyone has them and is interested in selling them, I would like to purchase the Yuketen Maine Guide Oxford in the peanut suede and crepe sole that Inventory did. Anyone with a pair in size 8 that is interested in selling, please contact me.

In the same breathe, if you have some angler moccs in size 8.5 or 8, please contact me.

Thanks.

I was looking to resole a pair of maine guide boots with a plantation gum sole. I contacted Yuketen and they were asking $150 plus shipping both ways. Anyone out there have any suggetions for a cheaper alternative (exp in the Portland/Seattle area)?
post #1839 of 2002
Which model are these?
post #1840 of 2002
Did you ask if they would sell you the crepe sole separately? You could take them to any cobbler then.

Anyone here has the Maine guide ox db shoes? I sold mind. Felt they were too heavy. And the sole too hard so I found them difficult to walk in. Didn't feel like they would soften up either :/. A shame cause they look real good.

Anyone else having trouble finding retailers that offer shoes in the D width in the United States? Seems like everyone is selling the E width only confused.gif

Hi, I kept mine. They broke in in about 2 weeks, the moc style makes them very comfortable & the sole's soft and very quiet. They're like short boots - sorta heavy and clunky looking, but nearly waterproof, grippy, sturdy & warm. You can wear them barefoot, and they look better after a bit of wear.
I like heavy shoes, being able to cope with weather is important for me (Canadian). They've inspired my new lust for a heavy-duty pair of winter oxfords. They definitely aren't perfect, but I like them plenty.
