    I'm in the maket and simply can't find something that is both (1) in stock and (2) well-made.

    I am trying to keep this purchase under $800, if possible. Everyone appears to be out of the Crocket & Jones boot. Anybody have any suggestions of where I can find something decent without waiting months for it to be made? I am an 8.5 D U.S.

    Note: I have seen these from Paul Stuart : http://www.paulstuart.com/product_i...08&MainCatId=14&HEADERMENUID=1&SUBPRODCATID=0

    They aren't bad, but the mark-up is rough and I don't love the toe.

    I like that boot a lot. Sadly, I can't find a stocklist. Leffot in NYC can get me one, but there is a wait.

    As a general rule you should be a 7.5 or 8 in UK sized shoes. Which is how Carminas are marked. The last that they are on 'Forest' is a general shaped last that should be a fairly normal fit.

    However, the nuances of widths/fits is a tough call in general and you really won't know until you try - that's the basic bitch of buying shoes online.

    Epaulet in NYC stocks Carminas - but no jodhpurs. By the way - they would recommend a 7.5 for you based on their general advice to size down one full size between US and Carmina sizing.
