Well, my chestnut derbys and black calf semi-brogues arrived today.

Way too big for me, but they fit the partner in the next office over very nicely.

Downside, no new shoes for me.

Upside, extremely happy partner who got a great deal on some lovely zapatos.

Alright, all four pair are a tad-bit roomy in the heel and toe. I wonder if some insoles would do the trick? I have bony ankles so usually there is usually a trade off between ankle snugness and toe room. Any thoughts?

USPS just dropped my order off. I normally wear a 10.5US (E width), and that's what I ordered from CT. The "Sharp Brogue" fits pretty well... a little heel slippage but nothing a heel liner won't fix. The Chestnut Derby is quite large... so much so that adding an insole wasn't sufficient. Seems to be more a width issue than a length issue, at least for me. If anyone's got the Chestnut Derby in 10US/9.5UK that they're planning to return, I might be interested... but my 10.5s are going back to CT.

On second thought...after walking around a bit, they are beginning to feel rather nice. One foot is a little bigger than the other so any smaller and squish go the toes! I think I'll just grab a heel liner and see how that goes.

Stupid question...does fashion dictate how these things should be tied? These are my first real shoes; i.e. first non-Kenneth Coles.

I think the consensus is in favor of "straight" lacing. Regardless of your preference, Ian's site is pretty cool:

I received my black calf sharp brogues and brown calf semi brogues.

I usually wear 9.5 US for Allen Edmonds and Polo (and strangely enough 9 US for mostly Italian brands).

I ordered 8.5 UK. Whoever it was, thank your for the advice to go down 1 UK size. The fit is good, if not superlative (I don't think another size would work). There is a bit of room around the toes and the heels, but the width is pretty close to right. There is little slippage.

The shoes look nice and are moderate quality, at best, I think. The workmanship is uneven, and there are some rough patches here and there. I would definitely place these below Allen Edmonds in quality, but perhaps somewhat better in styling.

I would definitely NOT pay $300 a pair, probably not even $150. At $85 a pair, I think I did well. They will be everyday shoes, obviously. But they do make me wonder how CT ever sells them at regular prices.

You know I am starting to wonder if CT or Loake themselves are having QC lapses. I know that the ones I have received so far have been pretty well made and definitely on-par with my old AE Park Avenues.

Shoes Received - Black derby and chestnut derby
Size - 9 (How can I tell if it's UK or US? I ordered from the U.S. site)
Normal Size - US 10 to 10.5
Fit - Width is ok, but lots of heel slippage

I'll try some insoles before determining whether I'll sell or return.

I still have two pairs in size 9.5 of the semi brogue that I'm waiting for. I'll report on those when I receive them.

Ska may be right, b/c I'd say the same about the pairs I've received recently. For example, both the semi-brogues and the derbys have little "knobs" on the upper side of the sole that resemble the little bits of "flash" (I think that's the term) you find on cheap molded plastic toys. I'm happy with them for what they've paid, but I'd agree they would be hard to justify at the list price.

Received my black semi brouges today, along my by chesnut derby's. I have a question about fit. In the brouges, I have a bit more then the "thumbnails" width from my big toe to the end of the shoe, I also have a bit of heel slipage, do you think this could be fixed with an insole, or should i go 1/2 size down. The derby's feel all together too big. They are both 7.5F, and if someone has one or both in the 7F and would like to trade or sell, please let me know! Thank you and best regards!

How much would you want for them? I may be interested in buying them
