Thanks Bro and Congrats.
Those are some of the sickest cordovan high boots I have EVER seen from anyone, anywhere...
I prefer the fit of the 4537 over the 4497. Both are roomy lasts, but the 4537 is snugger around the heels. I agree that one can probably go down another half a size, but I am worried I might get some toe curling.
Overall much better support compared to my stows in 4497 which have more heel slippage and feel wider.
I think the 81 last for the incoming cipresso gmto will probably be perfect.
