can i get some detailed pics posted of the pebble grains? i am thinking of picking up a pair. i wear a 9.5 in AE's, is the consensus to size up a half size? and Steven, you mention these are C&J's and on the same last as the plain toe bluchers, but i thought the consensus was that the bluchers were A&S? The clearance brown bluchers are Alfred Sargent. I bought the brown pair in 10s. I'd say they fit fairly true to size, because my right foot is a 9.5 according to a Brannock device, and they fit just a tad loose. HOWEVER, i bought the same pair in black in the same size, and they were way too loose. I had to return them. So the size doesn't seem to be consistent.
