Bought 5 more pairs!

I had originally purchased a pair of Wolky Perls (black suede) at a shoe store near my home. They were on clearance, and they only had a size 42 Euro. I take a 10 in US sizes, and have been able to wear a 41 in Birkenstocks and other European-sized shoes. So I always felt these were a little big. Given they are suede/wintery, I simply wore them with thicker socks and have absolutely loved them. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn, even compared to far more expensive "walking" shoes. The older I get, the worse my knees get, the more I need low, comfortable shoes to walk. I have gotten a lot of compliments on them as well, since they have a Glen Plaid pattern in the suede. People are always asking where I got them. I was so excited to see them at a great price on Sierra Trading Post, so I ordered a size 41 in every color, thinking they would be the perfect fit. Unfortunately, the 41 is ever so small, so I am in the process of reordering size 42s and will wear them with thicker socks. So they seem to straddle US sizes. The 42 is like a 10.5, but the 41 is like a 9.5...leaving neither as a perfect 10. But at this price, I will take them a little big and wear thicker socks!!!! That's how much I love them.
