I've always wanted these (Vandals)sandals, but my size (mens-12) was always sold out. That was encouraging because it made me think that they were popular with men with my shoe size. I received the shoes via a third party vendor. They are sized using the european scale. I tried them on and immediately noticed that they were narrow and not quite long enough. I checked the size and saw size 44 (US-11-11.5). Being familar with european sizing I know that size 45 is (US 12-12.5). I contacted the 3rd party vendor and was informed that 44 was largest size available. I still have them and may pass them along as a gift. The shoes are well made and durable. but they are narrow and sizing is more favorable to women. I'm sad but not disappointed. I would reccmmend to others and include these precautions.
