I have a question about a size conversion and didb't know where to ask, so I hope, no figure, someone here will know, I am looking to buy a pair Helmut Lang driving shoes and they are size EU 8, I know a UK 8 converts to a US 9, but are UK and EU the same ? if not then what US size are the H.L.'s ? I take a 41 in those (don't know where it is) and between an 8 and a 9 US, depending on the shoe. Thanks.
