    Quote:Agreed - just fantastic. Wish their standard width fit me. @Leaves - this isn't meant to sound greedy amidst this wealth of spectacular new models, but I gots to know: is there a calf version of the Carmina U-wing boot getting ready to spring forth in the short term? So much good stuff on display it's going to be a challenge getting any work done today!

    Quote:If there is no calf U-wing about to pop up I will probably grab the Chukka. It is pretty damned sweet. But my most pressing "need" at present is for a bal boot. I might have to scratch that off the list first. I just about did - had every intention of ordering a Shannon at the local EG trunk show yesterday, but got distracted by other options. Trying to focus now - but it's hard with so much freakin' awesomeness swirling around.

    Have you already asked the same sizing info on the G&G thread as well?

    Good luck.

    Quote:Good point - I'd give a shout over there and see what you can figure out. The boot is just spectacular. I know it won't fit me, so it's easy for me to resist. But if there's a chance it might work for you, best figure that out right quick.

    If you were certain and it was really right for you, then there would have been no hesitation.

    I've been guilty of buying some boots and some shoes because I like shoes and boots. But in my better moments I purchase the shoes and boots I really like and get more pleasure from. Typically the mistakes happen more when I've taken or I've had less time to make the decision.

    No, when leaves posted the sizes for the batch of Gg shoes months ago the sizes ranges from 7+ so I wasn't aware. Maybe someone pre-ordered early.

    Might be there never was a UK 6.5, sometimes when I duplicate an item in our webtique (I just made that one up, don't kill me) to post a new style I forget to remove some sizes from the item I duplicate from.
