    Out of curiosity, does or will Vass make a chelsea boot? I can't recall ever seeing one from them and it's a pretty classic style of boot.

    Yes, I wish Vass had more boot styles or made us away of the styles they can make. A dream shoe for me would be a jodhpur boot on the U last.[​IMG]

    I currently have the shell cordovan and suede Vass U last chukka and they are amazing boots.

    Thanks - I am ordering a pair now!

    If I wear a 10.5D (British) in EG, do you have a sense of what size may be best for these boots? Sator's excellent post sadly did not give a conversion from EG, and I have never worn AEs.

    Hmm, not really, never worn any EGs. But the gist of it is that they tend to be a little wide and the veal and especially the roo leather stretches a lot. I'd say pour over the thread and maybe check with Sator, he may be able to give you some more hints [​IMG]

    I'd go with 9.5 G in the RM Williams if you're a 10.5D in EG.

    RM Williams 9.5G = US 10.5D= EG 10D

    My RM Williams boots are 10.5G (perfect fix), 10.5H (a tiny bit wide, but wearable w/thick socks or insoles)
    My EG's are 11D
    My US shoes are 11.5D

    Prada ankle boots. No other pair of shoes fits me as well as these do, and after six foot surgeries, nothing is more important.

    Drool. Plaza last doesn't fit me so well, unfortunately.

    I deliberately avoided it because EG sizing is a bit weird.

    I wear US 8D in the AE Park Avenue but US 8.5D (E being medium width) in the EG 202 last. However, that does mean that I wear mostly UK 7 but that means my EG size in the marked UK size is 8D!
