    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It's a conservative estimate.

    My foot is a bit wide, I wear a 9 in wolverine 1000 mile boots, and a 9.5 fits well for a vans authentic. Would you recommend a 43?

    I am about a size larger, and take a 44, so I would say that a 43 is a good bet.

    so i went to join the drop, but the sizing chart is a little confusing

    according to it, a us 8 = an eu 40.5, but i've always thought that an 8 corresponded to a 41


    i wear an 8 in vans authentic and a 41 in mmm gats (both of which fit snug), so which us size do i choose? 8 or 8.5?

    Same question - I usually go for a 12/45, but the 11.5 is marked a 45. Any advice on whether I should go with with the 11.5/45 or the 12/46?

    @masshi @airportlobby go by your typical US size. We used American-sized lasts for these sneakers - so we could then offer whole and half sizes.

    Go with what you typically wear in true to size footwear - so Vans Authentic, Chuck Taylor, Jack Purcell, Allen Edmonds Park Ave, etc.

    I've got some photos of the Alabaster calf edition in the wild. These are courtesy of our friends at American Trench (who make seriously boss socks BTW)

    @Epaulet , could you please confirm there will be no branding on the tongue for the Massdrop batch?

    I know the product shots show no branding and FLW verified, but I saw some Museum calf preorder shots of the Sports Trainer and Tennis Trainer show "epaulet" on the tongue and wanted to make sure.
