    Tried those on the other day. I'm a size 12D US and I could just barely get my foot inside the size 3. I guess it is about an 11US.

    They only make one shoe in size 4, and I did try it on. It fit just a bit tight for me through the ball, but it was overall a good fit and I'm sure it would loosen up a bit. Problem is it's not really a style I'm interested in.

    Nice. So as I'm a 10.5 in Redwing GT's. I should be able to fit the Goodyear welted Size 3s. I needed a bit of the actual confirmation.

    I don't know about sizing on the RW GT's. If you are around an 11US, I would say these have a good chance of being close to your size, but that is only my best guess.

    Also tried the CXL chukkas and they were a bit more roomy than the derby shoes. Apparently the camel chukkas and boots are consistent sizing wise with the CXL chukkas.

    This collection is just superb - 'footwear with balls' - first class and they make it look so simple - brilliant!

    Not much action on the thread recently. Has anyone checked out the new 2012 Fall / Winter designs? I was in the shop the other day, and they have some models that aren't on the website yet. I saw brogue shoes and boots made of Horween Chromexcel leather (black, brown, and natural). The designs reminded me of Trickers, but were still fully MOTO. Also saw some Chelsea boots, which I think are new, though those aren't CXL. Worth checking out if you're able to drop in at the Aoyama shop.

    Did you happen to see if there were some larger sizes? Like a 4 in the brogues?

    ^ Ah, good question. No, I didn't ask about larger sizes. They do have up to a 3 at least. Not sure if they run big like the chukkas or not.

    In other news, I picked up a pair of their Long Chukkas today. They are in black Horween Chromexcel, and have Dainite soles. I'll post pics when I get a chance. They are really nice. So this is my third pair of MOTOs, after the white camel chukkas and the brown medallion slip-ons. They're all great.

    I'm so jealous, questioning whether I need these sausage toes or not haha. Just hope MOTO starts thinking about entering the American/European market, their shoes look absolutely stunning in their simplicity.

    ^^ What size do you wear? (edit: never mind, I see above that you wear US 13. Are you sure about that? I wear EU 46 and US12. If you are a US12, you'll at least be able to get your foot in their size 3 goodyear welted shoes)

    Kram6136, thanks for the info on the new models. I'll be heading to MOTO and MOTOR on Friday, or possibly Saturday, this week to check them out!
