Mr Porter royally screwed up their sizing. The listed size is UK which is half down from US on box per timberland, but on porter's site the size chart for the pair says the sizes are in US, and a full size from UK sizing. I had to return and exchange twice until I finally got the intended size.Feel like I’m taking crazy pills with the Timberland 3 eye sizing. I’m a us11 in most shoes. sometimes 11.5. I ordered 10 and 11 from porter. With the weird uk conversion I got shoes marked us10.5 and us11.5 —ok. Everyone said to size down (except porter, which says size up?? And why are they listing uk sizes anyway) but the 10.5s are a real squeeze and the 11.5s fit well—maybe a tad large.
I’m fine overall because the bigger pair fits, IMO. But my best fit probably woulda been a us11 Wtf.
also the eu conversion calls these a 45.5. I have never in my life had a 45.5 fit.
tldr shoe sizing is fucked up
also what’s up motherfuckers
I think it’s just a clean, simple shoe. It’s stands out in a very minimal way and doesn’t distract from the fit. Also doesn’t look as sporty or as dad like as some other new balances. I think people are tired of common projects or Stan smiths, this is something in a similar vein, but maybe a bit more “modern” or rather a “retro” take/another option.So....yes?
