I have this same problem with Aldens. I always feel like a I am falling out of the shoes and tumbling forward--weird. I have always wanted a pair of Scribes bumming me out that they might not work.
What's your shoe size Burton? I have a pair of Scribes in 8.5 US that are just a smidge too big for me. They run on the large side.
I am a 9.5 so I think I would probably wear a 9 in the scribe. I wear 8.5 in C&J's.
I bought a pair of scribes in a size 8. They fit like a US 9- 9 1/2D.
My Scribe monks are size 41½EU, I'm usually size 42EU narrow or 41½EU wide. Go figure. Bally makes some fine pairs, but nothing very memorable -- except these monks, which I happen to adore.
Definitely they will be a bit too small for a US 9.5 as another SF member here who is a US 9.5 tried them on and couldn't get a foot in properly. I'd say they are probably just a smidge under a full on US9E
Wow - were those US sized 8? That's a big difference.
I guess if I'm ever going to sell the damned things I'm going to have to get off my lazy butt and measure them, aren't I?
I purchased a pair of EG Sandringhams this weekend so I don't want to even think about whether or not these might have fit. Sandringham has been on my list for a long time.
I went to Madrid and did a little shopping this weekend.
Anybody care to guess the brand?
My guess is Carmina.
it's a dub, so i don't.
the shop looks like meermin, though.
BTW, any shopping tips (shoes, clothing) for Madrid, except Carmina? I'll be there and Seville in 2 weeks.
Neither of you are even close :tounge:
To be honest I don't think these are even made in Spain.
I like the last shape and the styling a lot, I have never heard of the brand though: Ashton and Allen.
Not bad for €90.
Shopping tips: Meermin is good for cheap shoes as is the shop where I got the above posted shoes (on calle de San Bartolome).
The aren't as good as Carmina but have really good styling and are finished to a decent, goodyear welted, standard.
Otherwise, the Serrano/ Salamanca neighbourhood is great for shopping, on my last Madrid trip I picked up a couple of Cucinelli polos and a suit at 75% off.
