    I wonder if the size is right. They're indicated in the picture of the insole as being made for Mauro Volponi, which is apparently an Italian store. If they're marked 9, they're probably a 10 US

    I kopped them, I'll let you know when they arrive. I'm assuming they're a US10 as well, otherwise you'll see them on B&S.

    Cheney for Cole Haan oxfords in a nice medium brown color (not sure exactly what you'd call that -- maybe chestnut?). NOS. Size labels are a bit odd, but I think they should be a US 10 wide. Should definitely have US sizing since they were made for Cole Haan, but also have a UK "G" width designation.

    I bought these Faconnable made in Italy loafers from ebay for $35. It turns out they're nice mocs -- very soft leather, and basically what I was looking for in a lightweight loafer. Two questions:
    -Anyone know who made them?
    -What's the best way to store them? I think the leather would stretch terribly if I put them in shoe trees.

    p.s. These are the seller's photos. Yes, I know there are odd things in the background of the photos. No, I don't know why someone would place a small ceramic shoe in the background of the photos.

    I still use shoe trees, but ones that dont fit too tight, just fill the vamp to keep things nice, no significant pressure.

    Regards.

    Seller describes himself as a 9.5 medium-wide, and says they fit him well. I had hoped it was UK sizing, but alas.

    ALL sellers claim the shoes they sell to be their own. Almost all lie. This seller has also claimed some 8E UK shoes he sold were his.

    And, also, always "gently worn".

    It does appear to be UK sizing. He writes: "I'm a UK 9.5 and these fit me fine, with a little width to spare."

    Right... Because Cole Haan is a US company and they're marked with a US size 10

    Crockett and Jones Keswick Leather Boots, black (or dark brown in pics?), sizes 8, 9, 9.5 UK on sale (Regular Price: £355.00 Special Price: £175.00 ) from Start London. In my size, but I would have preffered them in brown. No experience with the shop.
