Just for conversation sake, I wear a 9.5 D in almost everything. I wear a 8.0 unlined C&J chukka (British sizing, which translates to a 9.0 US) and a 8.5 in other C&J shoes.
Most definitely, and they may even surpass G&G at less than half the cost. The leathers and lasts are outstanding, and I think the premium is too cheap...
I know its a bit of a worry at first sight, but I`d just polish it up, and you will find that as your foot takes its shape and the natural sole shape forms, it will all even out...brush and cream is my recommendation...
@Cleav I'm still looking at some unlined suede, either Chukka or Teijn loafer
Regarding colour, I'm drawn to snuff, but feel dark brown will be more formal/adaptable.
Do you find your snuff boots can be worn with as many outfits as dark brown? Snuff with a suit or business casual for example?
