Top critical review

I'm a size 8.5 in almost every shoe I've owned. Occasionally I can wear an 8, but usually buy 9 if there are no half sizes available. So I was delighted to see these Cole Haans' available in half sizes. I'm 5'11 tall, weight 70kg, so of slim to athletic build with bony feet. So I was dismayed to find these 8.5 (uk) shoes way too small, I couldn't even get my feet inside the shoe.
I am further disappointed to see that the size 9 is are twice the price of the 8.5 shoes, so won't be buying those. Only Amazon know's why it has differential pricing on different sizing of the same item. Its really frustrating. Its something that Amazon need to look at seriously because it does stop me doing any major shopping with them. I'm sick and tired of searching for clothing and instead of seeing a price, they show a price range sometimes with massive variance, examples like showing £66 - £217 for the same item, even from the same seller and usually Amazon themselves!
On the plus side these shoes are very well made, premium quality and as my bother is slightly smaller than me these will fit him, so that's his Christmas present sorted this year. Weather or not he wanted a pair of Brogue shoes, that's what he's getting!
My advice to anyone considering purchasing these shoes is to go at least half a size bigger and if you're of a larger build, at least one full size bigger.
