    Gents, pusser doesn't do these but for mess kit I'd like some.

    They seem to be in whole sizes, I'm a broad 10 1/2 anyone recommend what size 10 or 11?
     
  2. Do you mean like the cobbler on the Ark made when I was on there many moons ago, he took an outline of your foot and 2 weeks later you had a pair of mess wellies. Very good as well for £100, still wear mine. Shame he is no longer with us.

  3. Go for a 9, if your feet are as bone as your post you'll not feel a thing.

    Ah days long gone. I should have got some in HK when I had the chance but didn't think about it. I'll ask some of the Pongo's in my mess but I was just curious, as the ones I've seen on sale seldom come in 1/2 sizes, if people find them generally a large or small fit.

    Actually thinking about it there are so many redundees in my mess I might be onto a decent second hand pair!
