bought some uniqlo slim fit OCBDs because I love wearing oxfords but my non slim fit uniqlos are all too baggy and i'm too much of a cheap ass to buy plain colored gitmans. also bought more uniqlo socks to get free shipping.

Mail day for sales shoes.

 

Buttero Oxfords

 

Common Projects Combat Boot

 

Common Projects Cadet Derby

 

I felt like I needed some smarter shoes instead of sneakers, and good some pretty good deals on these. I'm pretty happy with them if slightly worried about the synthetic soles on the CPs. The boots feel great but the Butteros might be half a size too big. I really like them though, and will try an insole to try to finalize the fit. I'm on the fence about keeping the derbies.

What size are Derby's?

I've been trying to find the high shine or cadet derby's on sale in a 44, as well as the training boots, all in black or burgundy (assuming they fit the same as achilles). If they are a 44 and you decide to part with them I'd be interested.

They actually happen to be 44, but fit a bit bigger. I'm UK 10 in sneakers and these fit me just fine. It's actually funny, because I thought I ordered 43 on both CPs, and got ones that seem to fit me better. Got them at zalando-lounge.com. They do these runs with maybe 5 in each size with discount prices. I guess the guys in nordic countries don't go crazy about shoes so much, since I've usually been able to get what I want pretty easy. I'm in Finland, so I don't know how much shipping them would add to the price if I decided to let them go.

Yea my soles are getting replaced on my officer boots. The foam ones are super comfortable and light but they just dont feel like quality boots with them.

Please post how it goes, or have you read about someone who's done it? Is it just like re-soling any other boot? I'm thinking maybe it wouldn't be easy to do because of the material they used.

I mean the foam sole. Can a cobbler just switch it out to a more traditional sole? Because of the foam I associate them almost as much with sneakers as with boots.
