Brilliant shoe-finders of MeFi: can you help me track down a specific pair of shoes that probably aren't made anymore?

Long ago I had a friend who had a pair of fantastic boots: above-the-calf, suede, beige/tan colored, lace-up, either flat or a very minor heel (can't quite remember). I coveted them then and I covet them now. I've kept an eye out all these years, but have never run across anything similar enough.
Then today I saw these Michele Perry boots
listed on ebay. Finally! After all this time! These are pretty much exactly what I remember my friend having. Alas, these are a size 7.5 and I wear a 9.5. Not gonna work. But getting so close has re-ignited my covetousness.
So: where might I have luck finding these--or similar boots--in my size? What's the best way to find specific vintage-y stuff like this? Any ideas on where to look or what better search terms would be? Thanks!
