(An insole length of 11.5" also would seem to suggest a 9 1/2.) Second, the color is not one currently offered on the Weymouth by C&J, suggesting to me, perhaps, that they are an older shoe or came through a US store like Ben Silver (who often gets non-standard colors in his C&J shoes). Third, can we assume that these were made on the 337 last, since the last number 337 does not appear anywhere in the shoe, and it normally does in C&J Handgrades. I wonder what the story is here.
I had the same questions about these. I was thinking that they were made for Barney's maybe, which had Cliffords last season in chestnut rather than antique tan, and which were stamped with US sizes. If that's the case, these would be UK 8.5E. I strongly suspect that is the case, but I'd appreciate more info is anyone can help.
