    Mine arrived today. Fit is very good. I feel like there is a little room, but that is most likely because I measured at the night when my feet were their largest. I'm sure after a couple hours of wear I will be happy for this will. I will take fit pictures when I have an excuse to wear them out.

    I usually wear UK10 in C&J. By the end of the afternoon I can wear my 10.5UK C&J and they feel like size 10UK.

    Unfortunately this is a sign that they are really too large, no?

    Beautiful boots. what's the story with the screws in the sole?

    What's up with the medallion? Quite nice one - does it symbolize anything?

    Un-padded, should have specified. The Uniqlo socks I was wearing before have a habit of bunching up in some places because they are a little big on me. I also prefer ever so slightly thicker socks for comfort.

    There are trees in the boots Malford posted above, but they don't look full length.

    What's the best way to translate my foot size to Antonio? I'm on the verge of ordering but the fact that I'm doing my own measurements on a piece of paper kinda worries me.

    Why should it worry you? Follow the instructions properly and Antonio will advise on the size and last that should suit.

    I was worried too. Mine seem to fit very well. May wear them out tomorrow for a presentation I have to give and will let you know how they feel if you want to put your mind at ease.

    Thanks for the reassurance. How's the waist/sole treatment for Antonio's shoes? I suppose it's nowhere as tight as some of the English shoemakers?
