    exactly! this was the root of my issue with the shoes i ordered. when i made the order, the drop down list said that a US 12 is a UK 11, and the size conversion chart on their site said the same. i have GGs, i know i wear an 11, so i ordered the corresponding UK size 11, listed a US 12.

    the morons on the phone and in the store were trying to tell me i got the right size, because THE FUCKING STICKER on the side of the box said US 12, and that means i got what i ordered. i said, excuse me, but these shoes are made in the UK, they are sized by UK standards, the US size is a meaningless numer. its just a conversion number, and YOUR OWN DAMN SITE says that the conversion of a US 12 is to a UK 11 in these shoes. and i got a UK 11.5. so you sent me the wrong size.

    their reply. yes, but it says 12 on the box, so it is the right size. :fu: ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME!!?!?!?

    i went through this about 5 times, and when we were done, they still did not get it. i wanted to strangle someone.

    Soooo, it's been 6 months since I placed my order for my bal boot. I've got a couple of black tie events for work at the end of each year but now no proper black shoes to wear. So disappointing especially because in the beginning of October I received a pic of the boot already lasted. :/

    Lol, never will I be able to wear the opera pumps. I'll be rockin' the navy tux this weekend. Would navy shell be too matchy matchy?
