    I bought the tan WC and bucks...they are both on the 96 correct? My experience with these lasts is that they run snug. I do have the brown ankle wingtip which is on an elongated last (much pointier) which run more generously (I assume thicker socks)

    Oh yeah, if anyone has 7 or 7.5 that they have buyer's remorse on please let me know! :nodding:

    Nice snag. Very sweet. I wanted them but grabbed the older SC non-GMP similar ones a couple of feeding frenzies back. I couldn't justify it for the slight upgrade. Why all this babbling? I really wanted them but I'm glad they went to a good home as I didn't have the stones to double up.

    Absolutely F'd myself last night. Had my size in the shoe I wanted, but I was using my phone and couldn't order. This morning? Gone baby gone. [​IMG]

    Yep. Usually I wear 11D and I find most of the 11D Grenson lace-ups have a perfect snug fit. I had to return a pair of 11D chukkas because they had too much room. Hopefully the 10.5D (perhaps with a little stretch) works better.

    I think I picked up the boots you returned... and I'm a slim 11, maybe I'll be wearing some thick socks with them.

    They'll be fine. Don't sweat it. Not even an SFer would notice.

    I am a 10.5/11 and you need 11 in Grenson MPs especially if you are more to an E width
