New shoes - I'm really rather taken with these.
From the front:
Label on the box says size 39 (my size), but when you peel it off the box is stamped 40 and the shoes themselves are 40 - probably just as well as they're a bit tight. Being leather though they'll stretch out, and after an hour or so's wear on Friday night they were feeling a lot better. Can't wait to actually wear them somewhere now.
And no, I didn't break my Spend-less September; I ordered these back in August. *g*
