Very impressive! I'm going to follow them. It brings up the old question. I wear a size US 11D. What size Bemer do you think would work. I've gotten European sized shoes that were 45's and they were slightly big. 44's are always small.
Do you know how Bemers would run on a typical Bemer last? I suppose I could get a 45, but I hate to have a loose shoe.
The answer might be to go down to my local Neiman Marcus in the Galleria, Houston. I doubt they would have Bemers, but I could probably try some similar Italian shoes. Lattanzi, Scafora, if they have them.
