    itll be a little loose, nothing a thick sock or insole wouldnt fix.

    but that's going up 1/2 a size in both length and width...which would be like an entire size up, right?

    ^ the tg73 is slightly narrow and stevent said his 10.5e width is a little tight to begin with. 11F would be loose with a thin sock so he'll have to wear a thicker sock or use an insole. i wouldnt gamble for $800 though. just speaking from experience

    This is pretty good. However in long term it is not good to have that much black polish in the dark brown pair. I may suggest next time use less wax, more rubbing and a bit more water.

    Actually I used very very little black wax. Only on the top. Rest is darkbrown wax.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm on my way, will let them rest for a few days before I start :D
