This is the same last as the ones used on the boots. I'd say it equates to an FX, rather than a G. Half a size down on your usual size should be ok, but you'd probably only get away with an ordinary business sock. Buy them in your usual size and you would probably have to wear a chunky sock. I tend to wear my boots with a mid-weight walking sock. I take most shoes in 10 F (UK), so I'm prob pretty standard. I have a pair of Church's on the 100 last in 10 F. I guess it...

I'm sure the Jermyn Street fellows will slip you a second, or a near second if they think they can get away with it. On a number of occasions in the past I have been shown shoes that didn't quite cut it e.g. the colour was a bit 'flat' and unappealing, the country grain was wrong (the pair...

Blimey! At least you'll have no problem getting your money back. I'm wary of Loake - easily the bottom feeder of the Northampton shoal. I've noticed that the quality seems to have fallen off in recent years. I remember seeing a pair Loake 641s (a bit of a classic) a few years back and thinking, well, maybe. In the last year or two - no way! Not a patch on the ones I saw. The leather was awful and they were very badly finished. Same goes for other Loake's I've seen....
I sold mine. I was so disappointed with them. Bad points Colour A dull putty brown that doesn't improve with age, despite regular polishing with Grenson dark brown wax shoe polish. My fault really - I wrongly assumed that they would get better. Style Departs from the lines of the traditional ankle boot. I suspect it's modelled on a modern army boot, but it's really such a terrible design. Style aimed a 'younger' market. Misses the mark. It looks as if...

An inflatable neck rest. Useful for when you start fall asleep through Act II.

It will be interesting to see if women's shoes become more rounded as men's shoes become more pointed. My female friend has just bought a pair of 'stout brogues' on a generous last with a rounded toe. Not her style at all. Lesbian shoes she calls them, though she doesn't play for that side. She also has her eye on desert boots. I would like to see a pair of J. Choos on the Tricker's 4497S last! Interesting point really. Are independent women becoming more masculine...
