1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    That is going to vary depending upon the shoe

    If someone has shoes that do not fit well, is it appropriate that they be posted here? It may save shipping. You know, shipping directly to the new buyer vs. shipping back to Chris and then to the new buyer.

    I'm considering these but need s ome feedback, am I crazy? Plus I normaly wear a 9 in running shoes but tend to prefer a tight fit for dress shoes so I'm usually going for a 8.5 and they fit fine, will that be the case with those? http://www.benniesshoes.com/Merchant...ry_Code=Size85

    You are not crazy. I don't really like ANY shoes with a bicycle toe, even simulated, but these are among the best I've seen. If they're too red for you, that can be toned down with polishing.

    A great monkstrap is available in size 9D . . . almost enough for me to consider foot binding.

    I agree, it's a great shoe and unfortunately not available in my size either.[​IMG]

    I don't like bicycle toes either, but I kind of like this one. There was also a pair of bicycle-toed loafers I liked, and I don't care for loafers.

    I really shouldn't buy a pair of shoes, but can anyone tell me how these run compared to the EG 202? A 202 UK10 fits me perfectly.

    From my limited experience, it depends a little on the lasts. The PS 4 figure last 8002 or 9002 run a little larger. I would say mostly a 10.5, but maybe a 10 in the shell cordovans. Those were much larger than others marked the same size.

    Crap, I was afraid of that. That means there are a bunch in my size that I could use. Hey Chris, how does Bennie's feel about graft? [​IMG]
