I too am ordering a pair, ones with laces, am just waiting for a response on shipping charges to here and have a friend in Moscow believe it or not doing the phone work for me.
I definitely will post my feelings on them whenever I get them tho I also might not get to use them until next winter.
Hello Old Guide, if you want I can check myself, where are you located?

Kiggy, thanks and I'm in NYS.

Sorry-I didn't see your post until just now. My foot actually measures 11inches. I'd like a shoe bigger but 13.5 inch would be to big. Thanks for checking.

Have any of you checked into how much an extra pair of wool liners would cost?

Since you guys insist on parting with your money, I looked into the reviews again.
It's hit and miss. There are some complaints about sizing - getting wrong sizes.

google translate it if interested

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.

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