    Bought these from the Wingtip sale and they are gorgeous. So I'm gutted that they're too small for me. They were sold as a size 9, the website said that they're UK size but it seems that in this case it's a US size. I can get my US10D feet in and lace up but its super snug. I'd recommend them to a US9.5 ish on this basis.

    They come in the AS box with bags, AS shoe horn and super nice AS shoe trees. They are really nice and I'm tempted to just keep them and see if they'll stretch out.

    edit: I'm not going to bump/ reduce the price. If they don't sell, I'll just keep them and try to wear them. They're really nice, and with the AFPOS AS connection gone, there won't be another chance to get something like this at even twice the price. Original price on these was 1200 usd (according to Wingtip)

    Price includes registered shipping worldwide - my price just about covers my cost - shipping the big heavy box is really pricey. 750-700usd shipped, last and only reduction before I try to stretch them out by wearing them.

    --> time limited offer, I have something I want to buy, so I'll cut the price in one big chunk to 600usd shipped! Big bargain, and I'm losing lots!

    It's close, but if it's UK8, then I am guessing US9 realistically (with a bit more length, so 9.25?), don't want to end up in the position where I have to sell.

    Boots rarely stretch more than 0.25 size, if that. I have tried twice, failed miserably...

    I can get my US10D/ UK9 feet in but it's definitely snug. I'm guesstimating 9.5 US will be okay but I have no way of confirming that naturally.

    As an aside, I'm a bit miffed about Wingtip mislabelling it, and not replying to my emails, being a forum sponsor and all.
