I have the chelsea boots above. Did anyone who purchased these think they were quite difficult to put on relative to other boots of this type? Mine are a 10 UK in the G sizing, and I wear between a 10.5 and 11 US for the most part, and these take a shoehorn and several minutes of effort to get on, but fit perfectly once they are on... interesting.
I have them in brown and had the same experience at first. I assumed it was because of my high instep. Either they stretched or I am more proficient in putting them on because it doesn't seem to be a problem anymore.

Yeah, it seems like a combination of both has set in for me as well, after like 5-6 times of putting them on they seem to fit better, but wow, the first time was unlike any other chelsea boots I've ever owned, I tried it with bare feet and it didn't even come close to fitting heh

I have owned mine for some time, and in addition to the tough time getting them on (which has subsided), I also find that I have a heck of a time getting them off. Thankfully I am no longer in a position where I need to strip off my clothes with any sort of urgency, but I have noticed that in my black pair the partial heel lining insert is starting to peel back for some reason, probably because of this same issue...

Did either of you notice a lot of creasing, long term? I'm debating trees and they do go in, although I'm not sure that they do alot and they are a total pain to get in and out.

(caveat - I have not actually looked at them since the temps hit the 80s, I may modify or edit this when I get home) I have not noticed a significant amount of creasing, but I do use trees. I have black and brown. The Black have little to no creasing. The brown have very fine creases, and they tend to take polish strangely, in that they never seem to hold a good shine. I personally prefer that, as they are akin to an unadorned western boot or something to that effect, and I like the look.

I did notice that my cheaper STP trees are much easier to get in and out of the boots than the trees I have with more substantial heels (grapevinehill's higher end, or J&M's trees with the brass knobs).

I've only worn them a few times so far so I can't comment on creasing. I use a pair of Woodlore boot trees in them. They seem to do a better job propping up the instep of the boots.

Why would one be thankful of this?

Please don't make me think about it.

Got my order in today. The black square toe boots are 1/2" longer than what they should be. Very strange considering the brown semi brogue fits very well.

My experience is similar. The semi brogues fit well (a bit long but okay) but the tan chukkas feel longer - even though they are the same last and the same length (I put one of each up against the other).

BTW, did anyone notice that the fit is different from left to right?

What I mean is, the right shoe fits much larger for me than the left... which is very odd, given that I have a slightly larger right foot, so that with most shoes, my right fits more tightly.

Both the brown calf semi-brogue and the black calf wholecut ("sharp brogue") were like this.

the THIRD time asking - has anyone dealt with returns yet and how did CT do the pricing since we used a coupon?

I think I'm about to deal with it, will respond when results are in.

I called twice about returns, and they told me they would deal with it differently each time. I'd suggest calling and getting the person to talk with their manager. That seems to get you a better deal. Make sure to get their name so you can send a note with the return.

I am unsure of the issue here. They give a return receipt, don't they? And the worst case scenario is that they give you a return for more than your paying price, which will not happen because the price you paid is on the shipping receipt.

Just curious. I have no real experience with this because I return to the store, sorry.
