Was the by chance from a preorder with Tempo Design in SF?

i'm gonna take a stab and assume you're a size 9 brannock?
I probably am but have not had the chance yet to measure my feet on a brannock device. I had these ordered from masuya in Japan. Great guy to buy from.

would love to see pics of them worn
I think I got these last September. I wear them probably 3x a week on average. Thick ass CXL...seems thicker than my other boots. The teacore is coming out. I brush them maybe once a week. I haven’t done anything else to leather though. laces are viberg.

i'm a 12 on brannock with a pretty low volume foot. i wear 10.5 in 2030/110 last in viberg and also 10.5 in trubalance.

i did a scan of my foot at a RW store and also double checked on the brannock. i sent the scan to tempo and even though they have their sizing recommendation on their site, they still wanted to defer to RDT. RDT recommended a size 12! i knew that was not going to work based on what all owners have told me. of course i asked Tempo what happens if i take their recommendation and buy a 12 and it's too focking big...they said no returns/exchanges.

anyway, i wear a 10 in RDT coupen and it fits larger overall than my 10.5 vibergs and aldens. i'd be very wary about any sizing info from Tempo or RDT.

Caspers are a half size down from red wing, alden trubalance or viberg 2030. At least for me

Given the price point, I'd say its just standard GYW. Wish they had more leather options than CXL, but it looks live they been doing special runs for shops lately.
