Lol, expect to get hammered, expectedly, on brokerage charges from DHL.

I would opt for the Australia Post option.

Duty is ALWAYS due, outside NAFTA which is now dead (the USA) at 25%-35% ish I think, and HST is due on everything. I believe we have a personal credit of $150 on HST only, anything over it is chargeable. It's basically disgusting. That said. I want that chinchilla in 10F!!!! But 8 weeks MTO + 6 weeks for postage, Jesus. I could order 2 immaculate mind-blowing Onderhoud boots for the same price and get them sooner, also MTO.

Hi, what's the actual width difference between the F & G. Is it all the way slimmer from heel cup to toe box? About 1mm or 2..3..? mms narrower you figure?

Do you feel the F at all shorter?

Would you think of ever trying E?
According to RM Williams own size chart, the 7.5 F width is 238mm and the 7.5G is 244mm (measured around the metatarsal joints). (and the E is 232mm)

Eastdane BF $520CAD but G widths.

Those of us who need non std will have to get lucky on used or buy full price from Australia.

Who's the lucky one who capitalized on my over extended finances that I didn't bid on that MINT CC 9.5G for $111. What a lucky score whoever got it.

Question on widths:
1) How much difference and where is exactly is this difference when you go up in width, say from a G to an H?
2) Is going up a half size better than a width for toe space?

Background:
Hi all, I'm wondering if someone can help me out with this sizing issue I'm experiencing. I've been eyeing the Comfort Craftsman for a couple of months now and after using the sizing instructions and charts, my length and width circumference take me exactly to size 8G. Weird to me at first because I've always considered myself a wide footer, my AE Park Aves are in a 9E and fit perfect, but I'm happy to try a G width since that's all they sell here in the US if I don't purchase directly from their NYC store. So, during the recent Eastdane promo, I pulled the trigger on an 8G since their return policy is great. When they showed up, everything fit comfortably snug (even the widest width area of the boots) EXCEPT the area where my toes are. It feels like my toes are being squeezed a bit on both sides so that I can't comfortably wriggle my toes. They're cramped and it feels like the boots are forcing my toes to cup a tiny bit, just overall more restrictive and uncomfortable. There isn't any pain involved though.

So, after returning the Comfort Craftsmans, I'm wondering if I should try a half size up to 8.5G or test my luck on an 8H? I just don't want to compromise the snug fit around the ankles and forefoot too much in order get more toe room (a bit of compromise is no problem). Any suggestions or advice is appreciated. I've read as much as I can and it seems there are people who chose either option and it worked for them, so that's why I phrased my question with as much detail as I can. I wish there were multiple widths available to try, but unfortunately that isn't the case here in the US.

Thanks!

Hey how did this end up working out for you? Been wanting to buy a pair of Comfort Craftsman in Chestnut. Wanted to shop local at ABC but online is looking to be the cheapest option.
