Spill!

And how did you find you sized compared to normal?

I planned to wait for daylight, but if you insist - Wingtip Boot in Navy Aniline Calf:

The laces were a last-minute swap, but I think they look great - plain black looks good too and I'd probably swap those in if I was wearing them with something smarter.

 

They are a size 10 width 5 on 4497 - I found them to be a perfect fit on my left foot, and quite snug on my (wider) right foot. I usually take a 45 (10 or 11 depending on brand), so may have sized down slightly but couldn't really say.

 

I spent most of the afternoon in a stunning lollipop red brogue boot, but it was just a touch busy for my taste. I added my name to the Eaton group buy in the same colour - that Horween leather is just incredible - and took these to make the wait a little easier!

Something about my post being held because I'm new to the forum?

 

There should be a picture on the way though!

Austerity Eaton group mto... wasn't there something like that getting sorted out at the beginning of the year? Pics?

rkusmant tried to get a no medallion MTO eaton but the factory was going to charge some absurd price because they'd have to create a new pattern.
post #2946 of 4669
Odd. You would think it would cut down on the work they'd have to do.
post #2947 of 4669
yeah, that's why additional cost is unreasonable....
post #2948 of 4669
Just nah it'll be extra for mto b/c they have to 'create a new pattern' without the medallion lol

Here's my latest- Lollipop Red Bourton Brogue from End, 4444 last.



Warning: the next section concerns the shoes being outside in the elements. In the past, this has offended the sensibilities of some readers. Please view with caution. wink.gif

The commando sole is pretty stiff and slick, and feels very similar to the Dainite when walking. It offered no more traction for snow on concrete but did well for snow on grass. These shoes also have the tongue stitched to the vamp to reduce water ingress, which is nice.

I also got a pair of their Repello suede longwings in green with crepe soles on the 4497 last (sorry, no pictures). While soft and comfortable, the sole is quite thick and the shoes are rather heavy overall.

There is not nearly as large a difference between the 4444 and the 4497 as I had expected based on comments here. The 4444 bourtons seem perhaps just a little looser in the heel and a little stubbier in the toe, but nothing dramatic.

Total time for the order was 10 days (4 days before shipment Mon-Thu, 6 transport including 1 day in customs). I had to print, fill out, scan, and email a customs form and later got a $31 customs bill via paper mail.

These look great! The lollipop is one of my favorites.

And I missed these--very nice!

I love Tricker's, but that lollipop red is straight up Ronald McDonald. Haven't seen a single pic where they don't look ridiculous.
post #2953 of 4669

Here are the lollipops I tried last week - the colour is much deeper in 'every day' light:
