I guess I'm still a nineties kind of guy. Love those.
Unfortunately I only have the lighter version of the shoe (wishing now I had it in saddle as well). However, I believe there are some photos of it on this thread. Perhaps a google search with "gobi" and "style forum" would get you there?
As far as fit, I typically am a 11.5B, and I have a 11B in the Gobi. The toe box is huge (and more square-ish) so you don't need to go quite as long in my opinion.
My 8.5D suede Gobis are a little wider in the heel and the toe box (more boxy), slightly shorter, and have MUCH more room below the laces/in the forefoot than my 9D Freiburgs. I also feel that I am unable to tighten the Gobis, due to the 2 eyelets, like I can the Freiburgs.
Hope this helps.
How do you like those? I need another pair of hard wearing boots, but have been dead set on a pair of cordovan colored Wolverine 1000 milers, which is essentially that same boot but more expensive. I haven't had a chance to see the Chips in person, but have had a chance to feel up a pair of the Wolverines and man.... the leather on those boots is tremendous.
gotta get me a pair of those.
I know folks love the dundee...me included however the Gobi is the pair that is a classic Chukka to me...love my pair also
What size are you? Saw an 8.5D on eBay, great condition and price. Not my auction,
