Sizing Is Completely Wrong
on October 11, 2012
I am currently wearing my brand new shoes, and unfortunately I have to agree with other reviewers on some key issues.
Mainly, the problem with the sizes. I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a size too large (I normally wear a 10 1/2 - 11 men's, so I ordered an 11 1/2 - 12). The shoes are TINY on me. In fact my toes actually overlap outward over the edge of the outsoles. The plastic bag that they came in featured a label saying they were size 11 1/2 - 12 as I ordered, however the rubber outsole says this is a size 43. A quick Google search reveals that there are two places that might feature a size 43 - China and Europe. The equivalents for a U.S. men's would be 8 1/2 and 9 1/2 respectively, NOT 10 1/2 - 11 as I ordered. Absolutely not ok.
The shoes seem like they would be reasonably comfortable if not for the glaring size issue. I do notice a slight rubber odor from the outsoles, but it is not an issue for me - I would not have noticed had other reviewers not made me think to look for it.
One final note is that I paid for two-day express shipping (as I am using these as part of a costume this weekend and needed them right away), however they took three days to get here. Not a big deal since I got them in time anyway, but worth noting.
