I think @NAMOR
can attest to this.  And I agree, I might consider an antiqued edge sole on dainite or commando down the road.

Oh yeah I think 1/2 down is the way to go. I've read some people getting away with 1 down but 1/2 makes for a comfortable fit and still have wiggle toes for room. Whenever I go on a backpacking trip with lots of walking involved I will includes the 744 with my luggage. As my feet expand, the 744 have space to accomdate the expanding feet.

MTO'd a pair in golden brown CXL for $197 myself :)

 

It's my beater for rain and snow in NYC.

Thank you!

I posted asking about the Wolverine 744's a few days ago.  And a big thanks to JR Magat, M635Guy, halfnhalf, jzrh and others may have missed for providing feedback.

 

I'm yet to return to the Rack since haven't had a chance and may not for another week or so.  My plan is to buy them and can always return if need be before wearing, that is if they're still there. Based on seeing other higher end stuff linger for awhile my guess is they'll be on the shelf still next week, particularly at that price point.  Fingers crossed.

 

And saw another note about the Promontory Point.  Coincidentally I scooped up a pair of these last year also at the Rack in black.  They are awesome, fit great, and agree with others that they are a perfect winter beater.  Can't wait to start wearing them again this season although 70s are in the near forecast.

 

Thanks.

I'd be very surprised if they wouldn't ship them to you if you called.  Just sayin'...

Wearing my black Veronas today; these get almost no love. Super comfortable, sole like rice paper, and I got them in black so they have extremely limited utility. But I just love the look.

Let's say you are a 9 D in Strands, Park Ave, and even the Carlyle, and you see online a very steeply discounted pair of McGregor firsts in a 9 E. Would you roll the dice for $100? This addiction is getting rough!

I would advise against it. McGregor is a blucher and will fit a bit looser than a balmoral.
Buy shoes that fit and not because they are cheap.

Made a visit to my local BCF over the weekend and scored a pair of Walnut Rutledge seconds.

Like YoungSweet, I would advise against this.  McGregors fit larger than 65-last bals.  In those, you might even take a 9 B.

I normally wear a 7D.  You have no idea how many pairs of firsts I have come across at BCF in 7E for under $70 - really good stuff too.  Larchmont, Quinton, Black Hills, Fairmont, Winnetka, Rutledge.  Every pair I tried on I had to pass, regardless of the price.  If it doesn't fit, don't do it, plain and simple.

What is that supposed to mean?  I think the Verona is one of the best things out there right now.  I'd pick them up in a minute if I didn't already own 2 pairs of Luccas and the Taormina (all firsts).  I wear the Lucca a ton with black or charcoal gray pants.  Happy to see someone finally post about the Verona after all this time.

To some, black loafers are a bit of an oxymoron.  The black is a formal color, the loafer a casual style.

post #64980 of 70737

I've struggled with this myself.  I wear suits to work, so I don't wear loafers during the week.  For the weekends and travel, I have brown loafers, suede shoes and dress boots.  I love how black loafers look when I see them in stores, but I don't know how often I'd wear them. I don't know how many weekend and evening events are dressy enough for black shoes but not so dressy as to require a suit.
