    Think these are EG:

    RALPH LAUREN PURPLE TAB SHOE -9.5 D


    They are - but the seller is kind of a dick, so be ware.

    He needs a spell-checker, too - from the item description:

    "Designer: RALPH LENREN - Handmade in ENGLAND."

    Anyone (HRoi) know if these will work for my 9.5 feet? Im same size as you...
    That guy has sold a ton of shoes over the last 5-6 months. I only remember because of his distinct photo method. They were consistently a US 9D or an 8E UK.

    My very limited experience with Corthay would say they would be 1/2-1 full size too small for you. Shame, nice shoes.

    Wait, so will it fit an 8D? Or will it be a bit large for 8D?

    ^i am a size US 9.5 size. the Arca last is pretty narrow even for my feet, which are on the narrow side of an E width. i was lucky enough to be fitted by M. Corthay himself, who was in the shop on rue Volney when i stopped by on my vacation this winter.

    the size 10 fit the most comfortably and he said it was common for people to size up 1/2 because the last (i forget what it's called but the RTW Arcas are all built on it) is pretty narrow with a pointed toe. it still needed some breaking in around the toebox but it fits fabulously now

    so if you are a US 8D and have a similar experience as me, you'd take a 8.5 Arca. if you have wide feet, maybe take a shot and see if the 9's fit you
