    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That is crazy. I am 9.5 in GT and 9.5 in Stow.

    Read more carefully.
    I said 10.5US in RWGT.
    Stows in 9.5UK.

    ^agree__ full size down from your normal US size. Indys are 1/2 size down, so another 1/2 down for Stow. i'm US 9E on RW 875.

    No, I read carefully. I am same in both. I had an 8.5 in Stow, which was insanely small. Same size on Barrie as UK 5 fitting.

    Condescension ignored.

    So you're saying that it's crazy that two shoes in the same marked size fit some one the same?
    RWGTs are marked 10.5US/9.5UK/44EU.
    Stows are marked 9.5UK.

    I have also been dealing with Richard at Shoe Healer and he is absolutely fantasitc and responsive particularly to my tedious question re various sole variations. I would recommend them to anyone when purchasing stock standard or MTO Trickers! Not to mention they charge only 260 pounds inclusive of international shipping - cheapest I can find online...

    We discussed this and we were both wrong.

    Alden US10
    Visvim US11
    Clarks US10
    Vans US10.5
    Nike US11
    Redwing US10

    Maybe my feet shrunk since I lost all this weight?

    These Trickers are a UK9.5 or a US10.5

    If they're only like half a size too big use an insole. Otherwise, or if they give you clown feet, sucks [​IMG]

    hold up...You're saying they are a UK 9.5 or a US 10.5 and they fit a whole size bigger than your vans in a 10.5 ?

    If that's the case, I wear an 11.5 in vans so these should fit me spot on

    Doesn't make any sense my 9uk are too small and I'm a 10.5 in vans. The lasts should be the same sizing too because mine are country lasts which run big supposedly.

    country lasts?

    All I know is I take a US10 in Alden and these are easily 1 and a half sizes bigger. I was even told by Bureau Belfast to size down to a UK9 or 8.5. My ass didnt want to listen. I measured the insole versus a Vans one today and it's 1 3/8" bigger then the Vans one.

    No offense, but using sneakers as a way to size dress shoes and boots is not a good idea. Insole measurements are not always a good indicator either.

    I was about to post the same comment. Also, "my size in Alden" doesn't help much, given that Alden lasts differ +/1 half a size.

    Alden Longwing bluchers, Indy 405's and Cap toe boots. I dont wear much dress shoes or boots outside of the ones I just listed so I use what I can for reference.

    I dont have a job that requires me to be super dressy all the time.

    I'd start by getting your foot size measured at a store that sells dress shoes.
