@Iskander wearing the Avignon in brown suede today for the first time (they were an Xmas gift) and I can't stress enough how surprised I am that they actually fit. I ended up with a half size down from my normal UK size of 10, which is 1.5 down from my US Brannock size 11.

For reference I have slightly wide feet but still a D width and slightly high volume/instep. Plenty of length in Paraboot's 9.5UK/43.5EU with no pinky toe discomfort.

Very impressed with Clutch Cafe even though they made a mistake, they quickly rectified the situation and their sizing advice was spot on.

I bought the Sanders Brit Chukka from Clutch earlier this year and they recommended a half size down from regular Sanders size and it worked out great! I'd have been swimming in my standard Sanders size.
Hello, can you share more information about these shoes.

Avignon in brown suede, I think they call it Brown velours congo. I ordered from Clutch Cafe in London but they don't have it in stock. If you are in the US, @Drinkwaters can order them for you and provide sizing advice. I suspect they could help if you are outside the US as well.

Bought the Michaels in black from Totem. Started with a 43.5 because so many folks said these "run large" and to go a half size smaller. (I'm a 10.5-11US or UK 10 with a medium-narrow foot and heel.) I returned them because the 43.5 was too short. The 44EU arrived and the fit is ideal with room to wiggle my toes and a nice snug fit over my instep when laced.
I’m a 10.5 US to 11 US as well and I tried the Michaels on in 43.5 and I found them to stop a bit short as well. The 44 felt better for me to wiggle my toes also.

Glad the sizing worked out. Plus, Paraboot does "break-in" but it takes multiple wears and a good 10+ miles of walking to where they really feel nice. I found putting shoe trees in them and tying them helped to mold to the most comfortable shape, especially around the tongue.
