I think it is a bit higher. I have a high instep in this, although I just have weared them 2 times, feel more comfortable. In 337 i usually need some days to adjust.

Another picture. Note that i am a bit back to take the picture, so they can look a bit enlongated. Worn they feel lovely.

The one on the left is the Melcombe, like the Belgrave but in the new last.

Is a very special shoes as for the moment it is not in catalogues. I don't know if it will be included, but for the moment it has been made to order by some shops in Paris and Spain.

The picture again... The new last is the one with the brogueing, and the othrt id a 337 brown Audley.


Are these the exact same size shoe? The 363 is that much longer?

Ok, you are right. I have checked and the new Melcombes are half size bigger than the Audley's. That might be what is confusing everybody. Sorry.

I have a hallam on the same size, i will try to compare them.... I am afraid all my 337 are 8 and it seems that in the new 363 I got a 8 1/2... I tried them in the shop and They fit really well since the beggining, the 337 usually hurt my instep the first few days but afterwards they are perfect.

Tomorrow I am posting a detailed analysis on them with many pictures in case you want to check. You are invited to comment too.

I really think that C&J made a good one with this last.

Regards.

You should have someone else take a pic of them. Or, take them off, put them on the ground, take a step away, and take a pic.

Side by side like that, I think I like the 337 a bit more...

Dont know it it has been mentioned before but the Lonsdale (390 GBP) and Chadwick (425 GBP) are now shown as available on the Bodiley's website.

Beurk.

Looks like another nasty, long pointy last. C&J should just put high heels on their shoes and be done with it! The 348 is ridiculous. Anyway, I'll check it out in the shop. There's nothing for us traditional, classic last types. They used to do a Handgrade 236, but no more.

I really find this last quite traditional, much more than the soft squarey 337. This last reminds me to some EG lasts in fact.

Seriously. It doesn't seem particularly elongated to me - I'm hugely bored with Italian-style pointy lasts and when I saw the Melcombe in the boutique, I thought it was a much older model. It has a retro, 1930s feel in the "flesh", and looks more like a variation on Edward Green's 202 than its contemporaries.

Agreed.Trust the people who has really seen it or have it.
