General questions about colour, fit. I plan on getting a pair of the B747 Kelly's: http://www.rmwilliams.com.au/home.as...36488C20AA199# http://www.rmwilliams.com.au/product...A18DF216DCD7A1
They'd be my first RM Williams's, and I realize that a work boot like that probably isn't ideal, but the safety toe is important to me while walking the streets (I live near the city.) It comes in two colours, 02 (Black) and 06 (a brown, might be Chestnut,) and while I was leaning towards the black, I realize that the brown gives a little more character. Wearing the brown with black suit pants, however, might look silly. Opinions? As for fit, it only comes in an H (wide), due to the toe cap. I live in the US, so I'm hesitant. I take about a regular 9 1/2-10, which translates, if I'm not mistaken, to about an 8 1/2-9 G UK/AUS. Should I get an 8 1/2 H AUS size, or should I go down half a size to make up for the bit of extra width? I'm worried about it cutting down on the length too much. Lastly, if anyone is familiar with the Kelly's, how does the toe compare to a steel toe?
