Used G&G Mitchell in Vintage Chestnut. 9.5E UK, 10D US, MH71 last. Worn less than six times. First quality. Great fit and comfort on these, but haven't worn as much as I thought I would.
Includes box and bags. No shoe trees included, but will add Skoak trees for $80 is desired (essentially fit like lasted). $20 insured, signature required shipping.
^ I'll go the opposite. I've never had my feet get wet through a double leather sole, and I just prefer the wear and feel over Dainite. Now if you walk miles per day on sometimes wet concrete, it could be a different story. Of all the leathers, it does make more sense with the grained / oiled versions.
Did you happen to try on your usual UK size? If so, what did you think of the fit? The sizing of the customer on the site is a little confusing as everything is basically a UK10 (although EG & GG are listed as wide) with a 9.5 Rain. No half sizes, and they say to size down, but that may be pushing it for me. Thanks.
Yes, both the Osloer. Quite a few different versions posted over the years if you search the thread (or Google images). On the Vass site it is shown with a single leather sole (Ascot had a good IG photo as well). stmaier has a double leather version that got me hooked on it.
With your slightly narrow sizes on some of the AE, a 43.5 standard width U might be perfect. 10.5 would usually be 44 U. I'm a 10D on AE 65 and 9 UK Rain. 43 on F can be a little snug some times. Like Bill, you could be one of those that takes the same 43.5 for F and U.
I laugh at the Galway "can't be city" or "no utility in all calf", etc. 82 is pretty damn dressy to begin with. I wouldn't wear with a suit, but throw on in most cities and you're sharper than most out there.
