    Had to do it. These Cumulus really are stunning; not to mention, suuuuper comfortable :) Christian really knocked it out of the park with these.

    I recently listed a pair of white canvas/olive suede Apertures if anyone is interested it's in the link. I love them, but reassessing my closet again and need to cut down on similar pairs.
    Nice pick up!

    I'd recommend a half size down.

    It's made by Baldassari for a local store.


    My feet are borderline wide so I went yrs. If yours aren't, you'd probably want to go half a size down as @thecool85 said.

    So I should clarify that my advice is for the loafers. And that's based on the fact that they WILL stretch. I have a pair of apertures as well that I took TTS and they fit perfectly. I have a slightly wider than average forefoot (measures about 4" across at the widest point) and a moderately high arch.

    Killing the game as usual, Gerry [​IMG]. I've only had my Apertures for about a week and I'm already pretty much living in them. You have your eye on anything in particular from the new collection? I'm thinking another pair of Apertures and probably a pair of Byrons will have to join the ranks for me.
