Well I just ordered two pairs of Overstone Derby TL in UK10 and UK10.5 and I will send back whichever size does not fit... assuming I don't need a UK11 of course! However from the feedback I have had and the size in CM of the last, the 10.5 with it's 29CM last 'should' fit, especially if they are a bit wider than a UK10.5 Converse, which I think they are. I really hope I can get something I am happy with as I will then start ordering the shell Harlestones that I want. :)
Were they in stock items or do you have to wait for them to be made ?

Lindsay from customer service was super nice and helpful and explained that vegetable tanned sneakers, while of course lovely, are a bit harder to care for and more prone to damage in bad weather, especially for the lighter colours. Darker colours are easier to maintain.
Nice, be looking forward to what you think of them.

I keep eyeing those desert boots.

Also had my eye on the desert boots, I've been wanting to replace my Clarks but the quality has gone way downhill and these look like the closest alternative

Can Crown Sneaker owners please kindly give some reference of what their size is in other shoe/sneaker brands vs what they wear in Crown Sneakers? :)

I have a pair of CXL high tops in size 7G. I wear a 7 in Trickers 4497 and 6.5 in Trickers 4444. I would say I am a 7 in most things. If you have some specifics in mind I’m happy to answer questions

Thanks man I really appreciate that. At the moment the only concern I have is over sizing and if anyone has a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor Ox to compare to their Crowns I'd love to hear how the same sizes compare! :)

I wear the same size in converse but find them too narrow hence why I went for the wider fitting in the Crowns

Thanks now this is useful. Can you please tell me as closely as you are able how much longer/wider the crows are than the equivalent sized converse? :)

I would say they are a very similar length. Remember I got the wide fitting. so they are much wider, I’m guessing that even the standard width would be wider

really a lot wide. If you don’t have wide feet I don’t think you’ll need it. I don’t know what you wear in boots but I’m an American EE in Whites and Nicks

Ok that is wide. When it comes to GDW boots I am at the upper end of D and usually take an 11D, but I am sure that 10.5E would also work well for me.

If Crown are a "wide F" then I think I should be ok for 10.5 F, considering a Converse UK 10.5 is "snug" for me.

I agree. I think it will be fine

If your still worried about sizing don't be, I too was, and everything turned out fine. What it comes down for you is whether you prefer extra toe gap or not.

They also supply high quality raisers with each shoe.
