Just bought the Neumora's in brown (10D) and the Elgin (10.5D) in the 2 for $300 sale - excited for my first pair of monks. If you remember, I was asking around here during the last 2 for $200 deal about that. I ended up getting my 'natural' size of 10.5D - at first, it really felt like my foot was in a vice. Over a period of time (maybe 3 wears at the least?) the leather really softened up and now they fit perfectly. I'm glad I had the persistence to stick it out. I probably wear my walnut and snuff suede Player's the most of all my shoes.
