    Do these fit true to size?


    ---I'd say that fit about a 1/2 size bigger. For example a 10 1/2 fit me clearly like an 11 to 11 1/4.

    If they fit a little large, I'll take some 11s... You guys can fight amongst yourselves over the 12s. I really like those boots.

    Alright, this is worth de-lurking for.

    I'm the current high bidder on that auction. Soph's photos inspired me to search eBay myself, and lo and behold, my size is availible. If you look closely at the photo of the sole, you can see that these are actually a size 9, not 9.5 as stated.

    I own a pair of the RM Williams turnout in yearling, and I far prefer them to the CT Chelseas I also have. The Loake/CT boots might have an edge in build quality, but the RM Williams last is much sleeker.

    I guess I'll be fighting it out with you guys on my computer Sunday night [​IMG] I'm not going to get too crazy with the bidding, past a certain point I might as well spring for C&J Quorns from P.lal.

    Clock,

    They are a solid 1/2 size bigger just so everyone knows.

    10 1/2=a solid 11 as an example.

    These ankle boots Rock!

    Suits,Jeans, elegant yet artistic style.

    Bellissimo!
    Bid On![​IMG]

    Okay, great minds think alike, as I was looking at those very same boots today online as Vass doesn't make a boot like that I believe. I don't like the patina/color but their darker chestnut would be very nice. I believe we can email them for pricing and they have alotof outlets/sellers in Europer so it shouldn't be hard to acquire.

    Pics would be status quo with this purchase.

    But the Edward Green is very masculine, yet refined.
