I've come to realize these are just too small for me. Some wear but lots of life left. Treated with Tarrago nano protector. I do notice some minor spotting on the inside of the left shoe, perhaps from before I treated them. For reference: I wear 7.5 Barrie, 8 AE 5-65, 9 NB574. I feel like these are just barely too small. I wear a 8.5 comfortably in Epaulet trainers, and would probably be ok with an 8.25 if that were a thing.
