during the BB Sale? I got my Navy ones a few days ago, and am waiting for the light brown. I feel they run a little big, how bout you guys? My light browns are on backorder until March, and I was thinking I may go down half a size. With the navy ones I may get a Vibram sole put on for a nice casual look...the shoes would then become slightly smaller when the new sole is stitched on. Thoughts? Anyone know the maker?

I tried them on in store and wasn't really feeling them for me. The last was a lil too rounded - I like a slightly more chiseled toe.

I'm the opposite. I don't think the chiseled toe looks so great with the pants I wear. These will pretty much be used only as casual, especially once the white Vibrams go on. The idea was stolen from my upstairs neighbor who did this to his Clarks, and I think it looks cool...unique.

How did you feel they were sized, TTS or a half size big?

I thought they ran slightly big. I actually had a pair on hold, and I did like them, but they weren't on sale and the store only had two colors in stock - so I decided it against it at the last min. Funny enough, I thought to myself I could just get some desert boots instead for less dough (still haven't though) and ended up getting the chukkas will has at ASW

Got a pair of dark brown. Took them THREE MONTHS to get them to me. Twice they "shipped" but then realized they didn't. Once they sent me the wrong pair of shoes. Finally after a long wait I got em.

I think they run slightly large. I don't know if it's a half size. Seems less to me. Make sure to post pictures when you change the soles. I'd like to see that.

How wide do these run? I picked up these since I have a G/EEE width foot but would consider the Peal and Co if they'd fit since I can get them locally.
