Seen them at the Trunk Show? Now own a pair of nearly new Kent Wang Plaintoe Balmorals. I stopped by Kent's last NYC Trunk Show and picked these up, a bit too hastily. My haste is now your gain.

I wear US 10.5D in all Allen Edmonds and Aldens (the Park Ave (65 Last) fits perfectly) and UK 9.5E/F in all English shoes (Crocket & Jones, Loake and Herring) I've tried, so I was pretty comfortable with picking up a pair of Kent's US 10.5 (EU 44) with just a quick wear around the rug, but after wearing them to an event later that night, I realized that my heel was slipping and there was a bit more volume around my toes than I was used to. I confirmed this yesterday after stopping by the show and trying on a pair of the same shoes in US 10 (EU 43), which fit like my other shoes with no slippage.

I already ordered the replacement pair, as these shoes are absolutely beautiful! So that's why we're here. Given my experience if you're on the true to smaller side of 10.5 medium, these may be a touch big. I would make the case that they fit more closely to a 11, based on the vendors mentioned above.

As the photos attest, these are very lightly worn on the soles and are otherwise in perfect condition. If you're in SoHo for the trunk show, I'd be happy to bring them by today (shoe bags only) or will ship anywhere in the continental US for free (outside will pay direct cost of shipping).

Cash accepted locally, otherwise Paypal.
