Having read about size issues, I went to a local stockist to try an example for the fitting but, as a UK size 9 found them spot on. They didn't have the style I wanted so bought on line. Very quick delivery, faster than my local shop! Very impressed with the solid construction and the snug way the shoe holds the foot. The best fitting shoe I have had for years, they will not be my last! Also given high marks by my Othotist!
