Is anyone currently stocking suede Chelseas? I keep hearing about how they're a staple item, but I can't find them from Carmina (direct), Epaulet, GF, Quality Shop, Armoury, or Leatherfoot. I know Unipair has at least one style, but I'm really not a fan of the rubber sole.
Is it normal for some shoes to slip on the heels when first being worn?
I typically take a 9.5UK in most Carmina lasts, which fits snug but not uncomfortable. The heel has never slipped. I recently tried a 10UK on a familiar last and found more room in the toebox (unsurprisingly), but also some heel slipping.
How much slipping is too much? Will this go away as the shoes break in? I can still return them for a few days, as I haven't worn them outside. They feel very...
I'm not actually interested in another boot; I was just pointing out that the alligator bal boot that's already up for a MTO is on Rain. And, like Leaves said, may be one of few if any other Rain bal boots.
