Hope all goes well also.... h_t doesn't sound to positive on the entire thing, but hope it turn out well!!

I hope it will. My point is simple - what are you going to do if they don't fit..? Return to store?  ::)

You do like most people do when ordering online, you sell them to some one that they will fit.
Time will tell with these two...

Ordered mine today after a change of plans through my Russian friend. Boots and extra liners and shipping, $133.00 total.
Good or bad I'll let you all know what happens when they arrive.
extra liners for $5? wow, stupid me, why didn't I have this idea before. what measurement did you give them?
anyhow good luck, mine already left Russia.

A Russian friend in Moscow handled my order so I'm confident in receiving them.
If I get the shaft I'll just remember I've wasted more than that on dumber things. I won't like it but...

I believe my boots are in the USA as a message from UPS said I have a pkg due to arrive tomorrow and the pkg was shipped from outside the USA.
Stay tuned.

Hello Old Guide,
did you get your boots? I got notice from canadapost my boots got cleared by customs, so should get them soon too.
it took 8 weeks, I paid lowest shipping price, and promised delivery for this price was 7 weeks. I guess they where sailing across Atlantic.
so next question raised by H_T if they fit, lol

The fit is my only worry. I don't care about the time now since we have no snow now...but they did not arrive, the package that arrived today was from someone else... drat and double drat.
I hope both of our boots fit perfectly-good luck.

got the boots. took 8 weeks to deliver


They fit ok, but was hopping they will be just little bit bigger. so if any one orders I suggest to add couple centimeters over your actual size.

They look good. Maybe mine will arrive in a week or so since I ordered awhile after you. And I did try to 'upsize'...so we'll see what happens.

I think the leather will stretch. What size did you order? What size do you normally wear. Wanna sell em?!!!!!

They will stretch... Probably not much length wise, but they will get roomier!!

They look great!

"ok" was my first opinion after trying them on in the office wearing office socks. they were not loose...
I just went for a short walk on the snow we got over weekend wearing thick wool socks. they are not loose as I used with irish setter boots
but they good length wise and really light and soft and I didn't get uncomfortable walking.
