Mine when they were new, shots taken in different lighting conditions. These were MTO, made to my specs: Nutmeg suede Dover on the 606, B1 sole with natural Edge Dress:
I think the Alderley looks better on the 202 and also a lot better in more traditional shades of brown or in burgundy. If I were to get a pair, they would be on the 202 in Rosewood CC.
This is in my opinion not a very accurate description. The story around the 82 (wooden) last that was floating around SF and other fora was that Edward Green had found that their old 82 wooden lasts had shrunk over the years, so they had new 82 lasts made in resin to their original dimensions.Leffot was said to have given some of their customers the advice to size down half a size, that is not the same thing as that E.G. made the new lasts half a size bigger.For me...
TtownMD: I agree with this information posted on permanent style with regards to shoe fit. Source: http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2015/05/how-shoes-should-fit.html I have received a few questions on this 2009 post about how shoes wear over time recently, and note that there is no post that sets out the basics of how a shoe should fit. Let’s start with a simple summary. A shoe should be tight at the back and loose at the front. It should hold the rear of the foot...
That is a horrible fit, because:- The facings have fully met, yet they are so loose that you can pull of the shoes without unlacing them, that is crazy (not good) - You have heel slip- I can see in the top picture a gap is clearly visible between your ankle and the inside of the shoe, the shoes should not have that amount of excess spaceThese shoes are probably half to a full length too long as well as a half to a full length too wide.Do yourself a huge favor and: Get fit...
Nice & congrats!I thought that RL stopped the partnership with E.G. some time ago. Are these NOS shoes or what?
The Chelsea's & Southwold's are SOLD, only the Beaulieu's are still available.
With me sometimes it happens that one of the OEM fitted laces breaks just about when the shoe is ready for a new heel. Just how tight are you strapping your laces?
What makeup are you going for ? Suede or calf. I never really liked chukkas myself, until I saw the Skanklin on the 202 last. Bought it straight away. I believe the Shanklin is only made in suede though.
