I got mine from the only stockist in Toronto: DWND Clothing.

When I went in to try them on, I had a nice conversation with the store owner about the brand. He was telling me how a very peculiar group of people typically buy these shoes because they are aware of the brand and can appreciate the quality. I was slightly hesitant to buy them on the spot because they were a little pricey but the owner offered me a discount because he didn't want "some f*cking loser to walk in and buy them because it is an expensive shoe". The quality of the shoes are amazing and my pair required no break-in at all. I've been wearing them sockless from the get-go and couldn't be happier.

The store is located on Queen St. W. right at the corner of Queen/Spadina. They carry a lot of unique brands that are less common but appealing to those interested in menswear and fashion.

sorry to ask another sizing question, but i'm thinking of buying a pair of the johnson boots online and i wanted to be sure they would fit.  if i'm an 8.5 in vans, and an 8 in oak street trail oxfords (but they fit a bit wide and long, with a little heel slippage), would an 8D in the yuketen johnson boot be the right fit?

I found the johnson boot to be too big from my normal size so I sized down a half size

by normal size do you mean dress shoe or sneaker (like the size i listed)?

post #1930 of 2003
It's either for me. I usually take a 10D and I sized down to 9.5
post #1931 of 2003
Just for sizing... I picked up a pair of country loafers, and a pair of country rangers. I wear a size 10 New Balance, 10.5 RedWing Moc-toe/Iron Ranger, and the sizing was pretty wonky with Yuketen. I got the country loafers in a 10D, they fit w/o socks - but I couldn't wear them with heavier weight socks, maybe dress socks. The country rangers are an 11D and fit perfectly with socks on, wouldn't wear these sockless so that is not really a concern. I've got a pair of 10.5E Maine Guide chukkas coming in, so I'll report back on how those fit.

I've personally found Yuketen's sizing to be pretty consistent. I wear a 9 in Aldens, 9.5/10 in Nikes and most other sneaker brands. Lawlercon, did you wind up with different widths? I've got maybe 5 pair of Yuk's, all size 9, but a couple are E width and a couple are D width. The D width I find to fit great right out of the box, but there's definitely an adjustment and break in period with the E widths. My E Width Maine Guides took a while to break in and stretch the toe box out a little.

I mentioned this in the sale thread, but I'll say it here too: the Hermosa sneaker is pretty next level. I've never owned CP's or Margiela GATs, but I've tried on and handled them both, and I gotta say, the Yuk's feel A LOT nicer, construction-wise. Very sturdy, very well made... definitely fit almost like a dress shoe out of the box, i.e. rigid heel cup, stiff leather, etc. After break-in, I see them becoming almost everyday sneakers.

Blooingdales in San Francisco has a bunch of Yuketen chukkas and canoes on their sale racks (additional 40% off already reduced prices). Not too sure about the exact models, just thought I'd mention it here. Saw lots of sizes (I'm a 10 in Yuketen and there were 3 different models in my size)
