ok, so what the hell happened to the sole on my creepers? one strip of the sole definetely went mad... i thought it was the salt, but the salt stain remover only made things worse, now it's even more white and rough/scratchy.

So does anyone accurately know how the old lettered sizing and post 2011 numbered sizing relate to each other

like in General would the pre 2011 size M work out to be more a 48 or a 50? Because various people consider a 48 Medium or a 50 medium....

@alex9811 Generally, an old medium is going to fit more like a current 50. The style of the jacket can have some impact too as certain cuts are very narrow in the chest/shoulders and you might have to size up again if broad. The best thing you can do is get measurements or try on when possible.

I'm XS in my leathers from around 2009, size 46 around 2014/15, 48 typically in recent years.

Seems just like a little decoloration, take them to a cobbler to have the midsole dyed or get some leather dye from amazon and you can fix it quickly.

yeah, took them to a good cobbler but the original shiny/polished look of that area has been lost. they still look like they've been through some serious shit, now it's mostly matte and rough (kinda goes with the leather but...) and yeah, i took a good part in it too trying to srcatch off the whiteness by myself (i'm a fool). still hurts.... will never wear any new rick boots during the damn snowstorm again.
