had my Bihars waiting for me when I got back. It too was held by customs but I had a friend deal with it while I was gone and no problems arriving I ordered one full down from normal PS (using Ricard/Starr as reference) on Zippy's advice and it worked perfect for me. I could probably wear a half size down as well, but it'd be noticeably roomy. I was a bit nervous going so small but it's indeed a larger last. Great boots, love the rubber sole and the color which is a bit different from the other burgundy dip dye boots I have.
