    I just e-thrifted (COUGH COUGH COUGH) these. My girlfriend will kill me, I won't get to eat anything, and so on. But all that's fine.
    The thing that has me worrying about what I just did though, are the recommended complements.

    It does look like there is a size 8 on the scribble labeling on these Church's. They must be US size 9 because they fit well enough to give them a try out.
    Here is my best impression of Wes' rejuvenation with new laces and a polish.

    I sent a request to @LA Guy and went from there.
