What happened Gav... In pretty much all footwear Ive always worn a size 8 for a snug fit or ideally (if available) an 8.5 for a perfect fit but in recent years ive found that a lot of my old size 8 pumps (which i owned in my 30's) have become a little too short/snug in the length, i think my arches have fallen slightly as ive become less gazelle like,  i wondered if i could swing a size 9 but obviously not.. they're cavernous so i can't really compare them to anything else i own. I assumed i could move these on easily should they be too big. Confused

Just off to the park.. i'll sort some photo's of the sizing in a bit..

Thanks Neal, I think they are going to be too small for me but it’s worth investigating fully haha.
Likewise I used to wear uk9 or 9.5 in vans, but now for a nice roomy fit I wear uk10 in the pairs I just bought. There is probably a fairly big difference between our foot size.

Right.. here we go fellas

The lenght is around 11.5"


Looking square on at the tape


Width is around 4" at the sole


...but they 'belly out' around the shape at the toes to nearly 4.25" wide


^The sole is stood on the 10" and 14" mark so as you can see they're wider than the 4" measurement would have you believe.

Thanks Neal, I have a horrible feeling that they may be a half-size too big, having measured some similar footwear. I’ll do some more measuring tomorrow but if you receive an offer in the interim, go for it. I may try to get to the Real McCoy shop to try if they’re still unsold though

I would say my J.Lofgrens in a size 8.5 are a perfect fitting pump, oddly they only measure 1/8" shorter in length and 1/8" narrower than those McCoys... what the flip!

Alas... I think too small for me. Look similar sizing to my belafonte ones which I don’t wear anymore because they are uncomfortable...

Someone buy these! £90 is a bargain, 1/2 size too big for me I think otherwise I’d have bit his foot off at this price...
