Trying on a pair of Fiorentini + Baker boots was two-fold for me:
1) To see how they looked on my feet, and more importantly,
2) To see what size I was, they run large, so that I can buy them online...for less $$$! ;)
Based on my experience, they weren't 1 size larger, but actually 2, making me a 34! At their SoHo location, the smallest they had was size 35, so I asked the salesgirl, "What do people do if they're smaller than 35??" in which she responded, "Well, they'd hafta get kid's size!" The salesgirl proceeded to point to a tiny, pathetic shelf containing a very limited selection. :((( And being the Holidays 'n all, they were out of 34, so I wasn't able to try them on!
I'd like to think that there is a large enough clientele of kid bikers out there to increase the demand, right? In the GTA area?? Who am I kiddin'? The shopping, especially mid-higher end, is pretty slim pickings in these here parts!
Maybe it's for the best that I wasn't able to find my size 'cause it's not as if I *need* another pair of black boots. At last count, I have at least 4 pairs, but they're all different, varying in heights, different kinds of leather, and styles - none of which are pull-on, moto, so does that still count?
