What socks on the TruBalance? I'm a 9.5B/D in the Barrie with dress socks, and a 10B/D in the TruBalance with boot socks. That said, I'm a proponent of no such thing as too much toe room, focus on where the flex point in the boot/shoe is. And in my experience, the flex point of the TruBalance is in a position where you should buy it in 1/2 size larger than Barrie (i.e. how I sized it). However, people focus too much on the fact that the TruBalance is very generous in the...
The only thing not allowed on GYW is cemented construction (including high-end sneakers mostly, though people discuss them a bit in GD). Hand stitched, blake stitched, rapid stitched, and GYW are all allowed and welcomed. You'll see some CP/Balmain/MMM/Gats in the WSAYWT, but not as standalone threads.
What was the cost of getting a shearling lined chukka? I love that idea, that's awesome!
Were they Buy It Now for $325 also before he bid that? Because I would so very much have bought it now at that price...
r/goodyearwelt is a more distilled version of SF. I'm probably more frequent over there at this point and there's a good number of us who cross over, we identify each other by the shoes we post. Basically, it's mostly shoe and leather porn, and daily general discussions, a little bit more critical on brands like Alden, and very much EMF focused. But not as many people playing in the ultra-EMF range, as on SF. I don't think too many people on GYW have G&G, EGs, or St....
Yeah, I even just asked them and they said that it shouldn't shrink. But I don't think I believe them. I think I'm probably better off staying with the 40 and giving it a good wash (and risking it being a little big, but wearable) and returning the 38 (which fits like a dream right now).
^ Actually, it starts at 12 PDT(11PST) since it's daylight savings time now. 3pm on the east coast, 12 noon on the west, by what your clock says. Everyone gets it wrong, which they also did last time.
So, my dark indigo star jack is *perfect* in a size 38. Anyone have any experience with whether it's truly "pre-shrunk"? Or is it going to shrink on me anyway (I've gotten bitten by this a couple of times recently). I bought both the 38 and the 40, and will probably return the 40 for being too big. Might give the 38 a wash/soak anyway, as it's brand new, and see what happens.
My Rancourt navy shell venetians, with Leffot. $360 shipped with tax. Beautiful, not quite as dark as they look in the pic. Looking forward to breaking the crap out of them.
Ah, right, the block feature. Good, now this is back to a Nick's boots thread, rather than a Huberds and shoe stretching thread. So, I think I have my Nick's build all finalized: 6" semi-dress, unlined, plain toe, soft toe, extra eyelets, so 6 eyelets, 3 speed hooks, 1 eyelet, or 5/3/1 (just want more than the default 4/3/1). No pull tab, 430 sole/heel, single natural midsole, lowered block heel. And, the leather, *maybe* Natural Chromepak if they can get their hands on...
