Looking through the catalogue atm... I'm really curious about the Queenslander Toe (B536)
and Original Toe (B503, B507, B508). Can't find any shoes or images of shoes with this last.
For my next RMW I want something less slanted but not too round either. The B543 craftsman toe kind of looks like this: right shoe --> |\\ ... almost like a right triangle-- though I'm used to it now and seems less and less so the more I wear it... weird.
I'm going to try on a pair of Queesnlander's this week, anything particular you want to know? I can tell you they're a very WIDE boot, think 4E, which is why I'm trying them on.
So does this mean that RMW is willing to relast or change soles on existing boots? I like my comfort craftsman but find the sole a bit too clunky, particularly around the toe box. Would they redo the sole with say a nailed or narrower sole?
Well, the boots I've sent off are a kind of experiment. As I explained above, they'll relast them to the correct size (12H) that they should have been. The next step will be to replace the 'comfort' innards with a screwed leather sole. I'll hold off on any comment, until they're safely back in my hands (feet). I will post pics. Lear
The full line-up - Dress Boots in the front - Cas/semi casual boots in the back I was surprised how close the browns are. I'm sure when I was in London Store the Chestnut Buckle Boot looked very different to the Chestnut Craftsman
