    lol so much conflicting sizing info. i measured my feet wearing some thicker socks that i plan on wearing with the boots most of the time. leaning towards a 41 unless someone who has the sidezips already can comment otherwise.

    I'm a 7.5 in RW beckmans, and got a 40.5 SeF chelsea. I could have fit a 41 and easily fit a 41 with insoles.

    sounds like the consensus is .5 down for all models esp. if you have narrow width.

    I'd be curious to know what his response is if you reached out to him about this. And what you meant by "lightly scuff" because that damage shouldn't be the result of anything light. I wasn't very impressed with the quality of the leather on my calf sidezips, though Lian says he sources his leathers from Tannerie d'Annonay.

    Sometimes it can be hard to tell :p

    Sure thing:

    Can't get much closer than that with my phone's camera I'm afraid.
    I was stepping up on to the pavement/sidewalk and hit the curb a little bit with the toe. I wouldn't describe it as a strong connection if that's the right way of putting it?

    I sent him an e-mail earlier today, I can post an update when he responds if you want?

    I emailed them and they stated

    "
    I recommend sizing down 0.5 from your true size for a snug fit as the leather will stretch to conform to your foot."

    Has anyone done this and was happy with the outcome? I know leather stretch to an extend but am weary about sizing down just because of this reason.

    Alright, so Lian replied to me today:

    Quote: I am very happy with his response, it is great to see this kind of customer service. If anyone is interested I can post some pics of the shoe once it is repaired?

    the reason there is so much conflicting info is bc not many know exactly their true size and its all a matter of opinion.

    Really impressed by that response, honestly. Thank you for posting it here for us to see, and definitely let us see what they look like when they are fixed!
