They are made for the US market and marked with a US size. Some say (Brian for instance) that they run a little larger than marked, but not a full size.
I wasn't sure about the orange-sockness of these shoes, but really thought they were the Fritz. Here's Sherman Brothers' picture of the Fritz, and I can't find any difference from those listed:http://www.shermanbrothers.com/produ...ProductId=6641
Here's the eBay listing:http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-SANTONI-FRIT...QQcmdZViewItem
The last shape and seam lines appear identical. Andrew, can you explain the difference between the Fritz and the shoe on eBay?Edit:
OK, I may have found it. The Fritz in the Sherman Brothers picture doesn't seem to have the faux (or real) Norwegian stitching that the eBay model does, although it's hard to be absolutely certain that the Fritz doesn't have it from the Sherman Brothers picture.
