Funny you say that. Seems like most of SF prefer snug shoes. I'll see pictures in shoe threads where someone gets lambasted for a shoe that is "too big" because there is a slight gap between the heel and the cup of the shoe. I'm more like you and prefer the fit to be looser, but I'm cool with snug so long as its the right size. Not all shoes fit the same, even in the same style. I got some Vintage Low CPs in suede that feel stiffer than the regular leather, and therefore...
Cool, thanks. I'm a solid US 11, and while my CPs at 44 aren't snug, they don't seem too big either. Going down to a 43 would definitely be the wrong size. I'm an 11.5 in Nikes, so my foot seems to be slightly bigger than yours. Perhaps a better fit would come with a half size down in the CPs, which aren't available. Given all that, I'll try the Butteros in a 44 - should offer a nice snugger fit. Thanks for the point of comparison bro.
Thanks for these thoughts on sizing LA Guy. Greg advised Buttero's may run a bit snug, but I'm guessing I'd take the same size as my CPs in any event. Are you a fairly solid US 10 then in most shoes?And damn...20 CPs? I thought my 4 were enough (since they aren't cheap).
Will you pay for the shipping at least?
Sweet, I rather have a navy!
+1. Need those in my life. Just to confirm, you have the white, tan and black (i.e., it's not navy)? Is it too late to pre-order the tans?
Anyone with info on this? I guess I'll just email Lobb directly and see what they say and pass it along for anyone who cares.
Congrats Greg. Look forward to your goods. On your website, of course.
I've read in several places over the last couple of years that John Lobb was going to discontinue its Museum Calf line of shoes, but still see it being sold on the website and other stockists (like Mr. Porter and Neiman Marcus) for certain models like the classic City II and Chapels. The misty calf appears to be used with the newer models. Is Lobb simply phasing out its current inventory of the radica leather used for Museum Calf for the classic models or do they currently...
