    I partially agree with this. When I tried on a shell rain lasted whole cut in my regular 9.5 UK I found it too wide, whereas the 9 felt way too tight. My suede and calf balmorals fit me fine in my regular size.

    is yours from Epaulet? i sold off a burgundy sinclar last year only to repurchase a similar makeup from carmina directly but in cognac shell and dainite.

    I might play around with an insole otherwise i might have to sell and get uk10.5

    Yes, Epaulet burgundy shell wingtip boot. Might be the "Steinbeck" or "Fitzgerald". Can't remember but he's dead and I only read the cliffs notes.

    Man do I love them. That pre-order is still open? In cordovan?

    Oh wait. That's probably an old post.

    Contact unipair. They carry a few models and I recall hearing it for similar to rain. Might be more room in toebox at least in comparison pics, but unipair would know best.
