    About the G&G's for sale on Barneys, does anyone know if these are G&G E or F width?

    I'm a bit hesitant because it says "Medium US" and I don't want to end-up with a F width...

    Btw, I've just passed the 4 month of wait for my MTO order. I was hoping to get them before the end of the year, but seeing all the other wait times here don't give me a feeling that I will get them this year.

    In the last couple of days with snow and slush in Stockholm I have realized how good leather soles are in these conditions, much better traction than dainite for example! Will do a double leather on my next canterburys!!

    to answer the questions, they are an E width, and in the TG73.

    so, i am fuming mad. i ordered a UK11 and they sent me a UK11.5. took me 20 minutes to explain to the moron lady on the phone why its wrong even though it says US12 on the stupid barneys sticker. i need a UK 11, as its a UK shoe. they are now holding a UK11 for me to exchange if i want.

    question. i wear a GG11, but i have the MH71. these are the TG73. i tried em on, and they are in fact a bit loose, but not crazy lose. i wonder if an 11 will be to tight in the 73. I guess i can have them send the 11 and try both on and decide. but would it be possible that the 11.5 will actually be better in the 73 even though i wear an 11 in the 71?

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks!

    This is the point where someone repeats that Dean and Tony have both said that there was an intentional decision to try and make all of the lasts fit the same so that, if the 11 works well for you in MH71, an 11 should also work well for you in the TG73.

    This was my experience with the Deco last and TG73.

    thanks, m. ill have them send the 11, and take it from there. i guess i was concerned that in the 73 the 11 would be too tight. but the only way is to try it on right?

    I have one pair MH71 in 7, fits perfect, one TG73 in 7, very tight, but ok after 40 or so wears.
    Then i bought 2 pair TG73 in 7.5, fitted perfect at first wear, which i typically do not like, i like them snug at the beginning. So i'm wondering how these will be at around 50 wears, since i haven't worn these more then 20 times or so.

    The new MTO's which i will get soon from Nick are size 7 in DG70, which i'm confident are ok in size, since only the TG73 and Deco are so slim.

    Of course this is my experience which could differ per person, buth hope this helps a bit.
