    Just got in my 270s from Zeemon. I'm a US 9, and now that I'm wearing these 270s it seems that 275 might have been better. In any case, 265 would have been much too small.

    Shiiitt, thought I just got my paint splattered MMMs, seeing those withe ones makes me want to get a pair like that.

    The gats I just got from Zeemon are too tight in the toes. If I get a size larger, will the toes be any less tight, or will they just be longer? Anyone have any experience?

    EDIT: I have a wide foot, which may be the problem. Would a larger size be sufficiently wider?

    I had the same problem. The left shoe on my pair fits fine, but the right shoe rubs my pinky toe pretty bad

    My advice is to tough it out and force them to stretch. Eventually they will.

    haven't ever tried vans or clarks [​IMG]
    but there are probably vans downtown, so I'll try out a pair and then we'll see

    I have a pair of cream suede ones that I will paint white shortly :)

    edit: they are MMM ones though, not the original gats sorry

    I have a pair of GATS in size 270, brand new. Got them from Zeemon, but they're too small. They're up for grabs - $80 shipped CONUS.
