A riddle for the more experienced yuketen wearers:
If the 5-eye MG Boot size 10E (in suede) fits a touch large, and the ranger moc in scotch grain size 9.5E is too small, what size should I try next for the MG boot?
10D or 9.5E?

Edgein - can you post pics of your old russells?
Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but the Marlow is actually less expensive than most alden shells if you catch them during RL's annual 40 something percent off sale. If you play your cards right you can get them for 55% off, i think...
The AldenShop in SF does carry shell boots, but last I checked they were quite low on shell indys and they were not expecting to stock them again. Not sure why. I was also told that their shell indys are all on the barrie last, not...
I'll be interested to see what they have in mind come September. A plain toe in #8 or perhaps a simple cap-toe would be something to behold.
Their current shell pattern is not really to my taste -- but the shell itself is.
