The toe box of the 201 is a bit fuller and has a slightly more chiseled toe than the 5. Fitwise, I have found them to be rather similar.


I wear the same size on the 65 and 201 as well.

I just think these are ones to see before you buy.

Yeah, I was kidding around. Sorry my banter isn't better.

I've seen them in person. They're not to my taste at all.
Darn you Pep, you did have me going there. I was all like "jeez, they do go with an olive uniform... Why wouldnt they go with a chino?"

I'm considering them for that reason but the scuffs and dark patches seem like theymay be a bridge too far to cross. My issue is thati don't have experience with cordovan so don't know what's possible. Have you had a GOOD look at the pics?

To me those look too small. Your laces gap is too large, and the inside left of your right foot is putting pressure on the leather creating that bowing. Overall it looks very tight, you could probably get a width up. I'm no expert but it seems pretty clear to me

i would have to agree. The v gap is a bit much on those. It's also possible he has a very high instep.

Did I miss something? Did he say his shoes were uncomfortable or that something was bothering him?

Nope you didn't miss anything. The OP just posted pics of his shoes and Levi1 and myself just commented that it's not the best fit on a balmoral based on the vgap.

Question for my NYC folks. The last glaring weakness in my shoe rotation is a boot to get me through the winter. I know the Long Branch is the superior option for snow, but do you think I can get away with a Dalton w/ Dainite for my 5 min walk to and from the subway? I just feel like I'm never going to wear the Long Branch outside of winter whereas my current cheap pair of wingtip boots gets a lot of wear even now.

The shoes actually fit very very well. I do have a very high instep and the width on those shoes is already 3E so the next step would be a half size up but then my heel slips out. Additionally, only the right foot creates that bowing.

Will consider all opinions based on what I just said. Thanks

Dainite for NYC salt and slush = don't do it.

I wear my Long Branch boots quite often outside of snowy conditions. Of course, I have the previous version with the full hearty Vibram lugs. smile.gif

If you have a wide ball and skinny arches and heels, you're gonna get bowing in the 5 last, plain and simple. Question is if that bothers you enough to offset the comfort.

And on SF, people will always feel free to offer unsolicited criticism. smile.gif

I'm doing this myself this winter, and think it will be OK. I hear that Dainite doesn't help too much on ice, but no plans on ice fishing in them ;)
