If you're in the 7 range you're competing against the Japanese market... And they're willing to pay up!
Doesn't matter when there's nothing available! Vast majority of my shoes have been through Yenni since folks just don't stock in baby feet sized shoes :(

Man, so many good make-ups the past few weeks. Not sure if I should be sad that I have few small footed brethren out there or happy that I'm not considering pulling the trigger on so many shoes...because I definitely will.
As a guy who's a 7.5D on the Brannock, this is why if I find a makeup that really catches - and holds - my attention and I can justify the funds, I will buy it at retail. There are too few of us for a store 97% of stores outside of East Asia to justify carrying more than one pair in our size range, and it feels as if they don't carry below Size 8 half of the time. And I don't even want to think about competing to nab that pair should it ever go on sale. In turn, that leads to fewer second hand pairs.

Exactly what my thoughts when I was browsing some fascinating makeups and found there's no stocks under 8

figured I’d give a heads up for another small footed member; I need to list some size 7 color 8s plain cap toe boots on grant with brass eyelets

Will take pics later today and get those up on this thread.

(Learned the hard way my feet aren’t THAT small...or they just grew)

Anyone interested in shoe trees? I have quite a surplus of new in box Rocherster trees that's very similar to Alden shoe trees. Due to the weight maybe it would only make sense if one wants to pick up multiple, pm me for best way to work out the shipping.

4 pairs of size medium made by JCrew $18 a pair + shipping
2 pairs size medium made by J. Banks $12 a pair + shipping SOLD all.

Good morning all. I would like to move these 975's in an 11.5 B/D in an effort to raise funds and buy those pebble grain cap toes posted earlier... but I am a enthusiast of trades as well, so send them over. Asking $350 net to me. The shell on this pair is amazing. Also, I will be headed out of town for a week tomorrow so if you grab them today I can get them out in the morning, if not I will ship them when I get back. Thanks, Nick

Hi guys,
I tried in different sizes, and I really wanted the Van last to fit me, but unfortunately it doesn't.

For your consideration, a pair of like-new-in-box Alden LHS for Brooks Brothers in color 8, size 8D:

Condition:
I tried them on twice in my apartment and walked ONCE on them around my building.
They have toe taps installed.

Leather:
Horween shell cordovan color 8

Size: 8D / Van last

Price: $550 shipped to CONUS
