So I fit pretty comfortably in to size 9.5D in the Alden Barrie last and could probably even go to 9D and deal with a break in period. I think my brannock is a 10D/10.5E (measurements given to me from Quoddy after providing some foot tracings so not sure how accurate) and I wear a size 11 in most normal athletic shoes (Nike, Adidas, Reebok) and a size 10 in Converses. I got a size 8.5UK in the Bourtons and those fit pretty well. A tiny bit of heel slipping and I have a decent amount of room to wiggle my toes but any smaller would have been very uncomfortable. I also have a pair of Monkey Boots in size 9UK that are definitely too small around my instep (needed a 9.5UK here). But yeah, sizing is tricky.

Anyone know off hand whether End Clothing has a site-wide sale in April? May? Have my eye on some stows...

They're about to get a week of hard use in the Welsh countryside; let's set how they hold up.


Reading your earlier posts I presumed you were just a collector so it's great to hear you aren't going to mollycoddle them. I reckon in order to truly appreciate English country boots you need to use them as the maker intended. Enjoy!

END still have a bunch of Stows reduced to £255.

 

Click on that END link above and arrange by price low to high.

 

I bought some cap toe boots from END and I'm very happy with them,

I checked out the sale at End. Great prices, but either things that were close to what I already have or not what I was looking for.

I ended up getting a pair of marron antique stows on dainite from Pediwear. Because the exchange rate is good lately and I'm part of their Tricker's club, it ended up being only $413 shipped.

how do the Stowe's fit in a business casual atmosphere?

are they a versatile boot? can be worn year-round here in NY?

lastly, i am a true 11D on the Brannock - any idea on sizing?

thanks all.

The stow would be fine for business casual. I wear mine with chinos or nicer denim often. 11D on a brannock would likely be a 10 or 10.5UK. I started going a full size down on all of my boots on the 4497 last, but recently decided I preferred a half size down. I think Tricker's suggests a half size difference on their updated Web site. I don't know about a NYC summer. Other people here will likely share their experience.

You can also contact Shoe Healer in the UK. They are a great team and know their Tricker's well.

Depends on your office. Business casual is pretty broad. I'd just see what kind of things everyone else is wearing. If they still seem chunky, then go with Alden, Crockett & Jones, etc. Obviously a full commando sole is going  to chunk it up. Double leather or dainite is better in that regard.

Well done, Carson.
post #6690 of 7377

I have a pretty thin foot.

 

Literally no size on the 4444 last fits me well.

 

The w2298 is a lot better, the UK9 on that one fits me pretty decently.

 

Any guesses on how the shoes on the 4497S would fit me? Specifically the Woodstocks.
