xseitanistx: 14-Eye Vegan Combat Boots (x-posted)

I'm not sure if this is appropriate (if not, feel free to delete), but...

Someone bought me the 14-eye boots from Vegan Essentials but they bought the wrong size. Being the Einstein that I am, I decided I'd wear them for a day to see how big a deal the size issue was - and, yes, it was a very big deal. Needless to say, I can't exchange them, so I've experimented with different ways to make the boots work. The bottom line is, I need the right size, so I'm hoping to sell these and put the money towards another pair. These retail for close to $200, but I'd be willing to accept $100 plus shipping. They're a lady's size eight but fit like a lady's size nine. From what I understand, these hold up RIDICULOUSLY well and are well worth the money, so $100 is a steal... Perfect for that size-nine vegan someone to trot around the snow in this holiday season.

Anyone interested?

You know, my pair is too big for me too.... they need to be a little clearer on their website how much bigger the sizes are than american shoe sizes. I usually wear a 6 1/2 so I figured a 6 would be okay. WRONG.

Anyway, I wear mine with two pairs of socks... slightly wasteful of socks, but I like them too much. ;(

About the particular boot I think she is talking about, the website says:
**NOTE** - This boot runs large by nearly a full size. Please order down 1 size from your normal sizing for a proper fit as recommended by the manufacturer.

Apparently they've added that since I got mine a year ago...
