 I know that everyone has different feet, but I've found that while I can wear Lobb and Edward Green comfortably, I haven't found a G&G last that fits me well. So you might be disappointed when you finally get around to trying on a pair of G&G.
 I'd get rid of the shoes that aren't comfortable and I'd try on different brands and lasts of shoes until I found ones that were both stylish and comfortable. I know that this is SF and that we fetishise style here, but life's too short to go around wearing uncomfortable shoes because they look good. Better to wear a comfortable pair of Loakes than an uncomfortable pair of Lobbs.

He used to sweat so much at school that we nicknamed him "Rain Man".
SF member VRaivio interviewed Beaman for Raivio's "Keikari" website a year or two ago: http://www.keikari.com/english/interview-with-darren-beaman/ This is what Beaman had to say about when he took people's money for orders and then gave them nothing in return (well, nothing but deep-seated frustration and disappointment):  And:  No sign of an apology, I notice, and the only regret that MTDB seems to have is for the fact that his name was stained and that a record of his...
  I don't know when RL stores will have them on sale, but you can get them from a StyleForum member here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/441850/november-14-rl-shoes-cordovan-and-purple-label-models
   Fixed that for you.
@Coxsackie - I think that this thread is a very good idea for you.    Much better to save up for one or two particular items, rather than succumbing to the temptation of things that you don't really need or want, simply because they might happen to be on sale.
