    I wouldn't size up, the problem with U last is usually toebox. If F fits you perfectly, than size up on U will accommodate width but on the wrong length. I know U last is not for me the same way TG73 is not for my foot. If a last fit you it just does, I wouldn't bother with size up or down to sacrifice length for width.

    I responded two hours ago, but it looks like I was too late as well.

    Sorry guys :(
    Well console yourselves:

    The toes look a little beat up. Who knows how much life is left in soles and heels?

    And at the rate things are moving, at least in the shoe market, it feels a bit like B&S again.

    I was able to kop. I PMed around when Jsocol did but wanted to see pics of the sole. I bought shoe trees as well, so that may have swayed the seller.

    Jsocol, if sizing doesn't work for me, I'll PM you.

    re: soles...I will probably topy for the Boston weather and get heels redone.

    Great kop! Congrats. I was just trying to make people who missed out feel some consolation. If they were my size I sure as shit would have bought them too!

    I wanted the trees too. Ok well. Not really something I needed. Enjoy them. And do let me know if they don't work for you.

    I've heard 1/2, but only have experience with F personally.
