You mean UK sized, right? EU sizes run in the 30s and 40s. And UK sizes are officially a full size down from US, although sometimes in practice they are and a half size down, which is super confusing...
They mark it as IT sizes, but who the hell knows anyway. You're right yeah I don't know what EU sizes are, so I guess I just meant European sizing vs US. Barbanera sizing is absolutely all over the effing place...

speaking Barbanera, if this is your size (if it had been 10US I would be super tempted..., though given I already got a black calf cash side zip it would have been kind overlapping...)

TF Chelsea is like what $2k?
Got a great deal on it on Italist. Same as my other TF Boots. While it was sold out on Mr.Porter....on Italist they had a full size range at over 55% off retail

Italist/Poshmark/Glamood are like my new circa 09 YOOX for great deals

European sizes don't really exist either. The most common sizing is Italian (what is usually called european) but french sizing is one size lower (i.e. a 41 french is a 42 italian).

French sizing: Each point represents 0,666cm
Italian: same but +1 to the final size
UK:each point is 1/3"
US: I think it is +0.75 men +2,75( women added to UK but I think it varies because fuck you that's why.
Japan: straight up lenght in centimeters., just check where they measure and you're good to go

We did not know this, Dude.
Can I add that shops will often use a different sizing than the one inside the shoes to help you out, further complicating the issue. I.e. the shoe is in italian sizing but they tell you the french sizing (most people don't know there is a difference anyway)cause you're in France, or they don't. I've also see shoes produced in Italy for non Uk companies sizing in what seems to be UK just because well, once again, because fuck you.
