Ok so here's the deal. Last summer I purchased a pair of size 9 cav boots via mail order. They are immaculate. I tried them on only to discover that they run large. My loss is your gain. These boots have only been worn on carpet, and then only for about the 5 minutes it took me to realize that they were just too large to make work. The first person with $140 gets these awesome boots. I'll even pay shipping and insurance.
