Loake Pimlico--Chukka's - Page 4
Just got the shoes in an hour ago!! :D
10D in Allen Edmonds Park Avenue fits me like a glove so I ordered size 9 UK for the Pimlico.
The fit is perfect, comfortable but definitely not loose. It would have been big if I have ordered a 9.5 UK like the manufacturer has suggested.
All and all, cost me 148 pound from Shoe Healer, customer service was great and shipping is WAS CRAZY FAST. I paid their PayPal invoice on Wednesday and received the shoes on Friday. And I live in Missouri, in the middle of the US!
Everything was great, even got two shoe bags! Now, downsides. There is a little cut, rough spot on both sides of one of the shoes on the edges. Is that normal or would it get worse as I wear it?
Just regarding the rubber soles, how do they compare to leather soles with a rubber topy? How do you replace the rubber sole - is it costly?
The same way you replace a leather sole. I think I was quoted something like $100 from Loake for a refurbishment a couple of years ago.
