thanks… seems a few retailers are saying TTS but its dependent on the model, presumably built on different lasts.

It’s these https://www.kafkamercantile.com/uk/item/37361/Yuketen/Blucher-Rocker-Sole-With-Kiltie—FO-Golden-Brown.html

Not sure I can be bothered ordering and sending back in the current circumstances

Imo sizing is all over the shop. I’m a UK 12 in pretty much everything and have the below in yuketen:
Maine Guide 5 eye Chromexcel - US12 (fit nicely)
Maine guide 6 eye pebble grain - US12 (fit a quarter size smaller than the above)
Country Ranger - US13 (fit TTS)
Chukka boot - made in Canada - US12 (have to double sock and they’re at least a half size too long)

Sizing is a nightmare but they remain one of the best made shoes out there imho.

Thanks for that mate. Had a look but no more unfortunately. Looks like a custom order to Yuketen.

Yeah that sort of doubt puts me off a custom order. Can’t understand the size variations. I find Real McCoy’s annoying for the same reason….can never be sure of sizing from the off plus you have to factor in fucking shrinkage.

Ok so I took a chance and bought a pair of the Blucher Rocker from eBay
So US11 in these fits like a UK10 (for me at least)
