TheWrait posted my two favorite sources but http://www.creationwatches.com/ is another good one for Seiko Divers and they seem to replenish their inventory a bit more frequently than Seiya or Higuchi.
Six more inches of snow on the ground today for the winter that never ends. That's no deterrent to wearing the whisky Indy boots though.
Plus he has the best colors up top.
I know they have that on their MTO web site now but it's really of such minimal bother to me that I would have never even thought to consider it back when I ordered these. These days, if I were ordering a pair through the MTO program, I would probably give it a shot with the two different sizes though.
These are actually an "E" width and I have that problem anytime I wear loafers, which is one reason I wear them so sparingly. My right foot is significantly wider than my left foot and fills out the "E" width perfectly, but that means my left foot always has a bit of extra space on the sides. When I first got these, there was a bit of slipping but as they've broken in that is no longer a problem. I think if I had gone with a "D" width, my left foot would feel fine but my...

8.6 miles before work this morning.
I put in 10.4 miles yesterday afternoon and with the sun out and no breeze it was actually pleasant. It was in the mid 30s so it was my warmest run in a while. I did however try running across a snowy field and discovered that the snow was much deeper than I anticipated and sunk in up to my waist a few times. Like an idiot I tried to continue powering through it rather than turn back and go back to the trail. It was slow going and my thighs were killing me at the end but...
