the shoes ran larger than their stated size. However, I seem to recall others saying that it can go the other way too. If so, there's no lawful pattern operating here, and very precise measurements will be needed for an online purchase. Many would argue that it's not worth the risk unless the seller is completely open to a return if they don't fit.

Sky Valet's sizes are expressed in US sizes. I ordered a 11.5 and the size on the box was a size 11.

Trussardi, size 11

I have no idea who makes the shoes for trussardi. Any ideas? I think these will go for relatively cheap, in any case. I don't particularly like them, but someone else might.

Ron Rider who is selling these is a fellow forumite and from a number of transactions is a wealth of information and VERY service oriented, so if anyone is considering these (or the chukkas at martegani chukkas), I would rec PM or emailing Ron about size, fit, etc
very nice shoes and great guy!

I make sure to put "Martegani" in my searches so I can snatch up any offerings Ron may have in a size 13 that will fill holes in my collection.

^^^ I haven't really looked into many of the older BB shoes. Are those EG's?

Yup. I have the same pair for sale in 8.5C right now. I don't mean to spam, but my pictures highlight some of the telltale signs such as the nailing pattern in the heel, the sole, and the interior writing.

I had a very similar pair of shoes that I sold to distinctive. But they were Peal & Co. and not Egs.

I thought that they were from the late 1970s or 1980s and that they were made by Church.

If distinctive sees this post he would probably know more than I do.

My shoes even had a rare pair of Peal & Co. shoe trees, but I don't think that they came with the shoes originally.

Those look very similar to Alden's straight toe perf bal, but looking at the sole it is very different.

The Aldens have visible welt stiching which the EG's are hidden.

You were absolutely right, they were Church's unfortunately
