    Can anyone speak to how Marsell shoes like these on eBay run?

    I'm a 9.5 in most sneakers/shoes and have wide feet. They're a size 41 and I'm not sure if they'll be really small.

    Thanks.

    Much much nicer than I expected......heavy, stiff as hell, and gnarled up, but I can see that the leather is treated, and once its starts to be worn, the natural shine of the cordovan is evident and will come through...although they look it, they are not reversed.....its just the treatment that gives them that incredibly matt/dry finish...

    The final part of my Augusta footwear journey (for now :).....buffalo sneaker, 6 hole horse workboot and now the perfect cordovan double zip.....these will age beautifully...even the wife loves them, and that's saying a lot.......:)

    Nice pair eton97. Leather looks very thick and appears 'heavy'. Between these and Moo's CCP in Bison., i will take the CCP. Dammit Moo..those boots of yours.

    Thank you.

    I owned CCP tornadoes for many years. A great great boot, but I just needed a change from the pointy toe....

    I will say this... those Augs are very nice. Congrats.

    For those that know how weird my feet react to footwear that should seemingly fit but inexplicably does not, the CCP are amazing for the fact they they are super comfortable. Really, really comfortable... I remember when I was at The Archive in SF, one of the guys working there was wearing CCP and he told me that given my wide feet CCP is not for me. I don't blame him one bit - his pair looked pretty narrow. But mine is just awesome fitting, just enough room to "play the piano" with my toes, but still have a nice, solid feeling while walking.

    They are from Vertice. These are sz43 and fit tts. The white/bone single zip come up 1 size large (sz42 worked perfectly for me). They bought 2x sz43 in the black double zip...so 1 pair left in that size......
