Wish they had these in my size. I'm on the lookout for new low profile, non flashy boots to wear riding around town or to work and these looked perfect.

They have a couple in 40 or 41... ~11-11.5 ish US... I'm usually a big 11.5 or a 12, so I'm interested as well.. I'd be happy to report back once they show up, but I imagine most if not all of them will be sold by then...

Euro size 40 and 41 translate to US size 7 - 7.5. You might want to cancel that order.

Called and got the order canceled... They must be a pretty low volume place because as soon as I said I placed the order this morning they knew who I was.

I typed Euro to US size conversion into the google and clicked on the ebay link... I can't be expected to read the small print!

Looking at the reviews and sizes, I'm thinking these are women's boots. I think I'm going to get a pair for the gf. They'll make a good Christmas present.

If anyone is looking for affordable boots, look at Thor. They are mostly producing dirt riding gear but they Thor 50/50 are absolutely fantastic for around $100 price. Very comfortable, look good and build quality is outstanding. I've had 50/50 boots for a few years now and they have zero issues. No there are not waterproof, unfortunately.
It looks like 50/50 are discontinued. Thor is now making Blitz boot, which is basically the same 50/50 boot with a few cosmetic changes. I really want to get them but my 50/50 is still in outstanding shape so I can't justify the purchase at this point

Just throwing it out there.

YIKES badmoon! I thought you were kidding. I said small feet sizes only.

Generally US size 11.5 = euro 46 and US 12 = euro 47. Glad you were able to cancel.

You really should stop looking up women's dresses. It's bound to get you into trouble.
