    BBC - I owe you a beer man. They came today and not only do they fit perfect, the color is 100x better in person. Going to a little refurbishing, and Ill post before and afters.

    I'll take the beer. Glad they worked out and look forward to some before and after pics.

    requires pencil feet

    I picked up a pair of Wright Shells in an A width and they are a little narrow, not too tight on my D foot, FWIW.

    C&J NWOB $125 BIN 8.5: http://item.ebay.com/180522753735 Not my size [​IMG]

    Look light you bought the shoes. So I guess they're 8.5 UK?

    If they are for Barney's, they are US sized.

    They came today - a little tight, but nothing unmanageable or unstretchable. Thanks again!
