If anyone here would like RL lindricks or Marlow I can help get them for you straight from RL. PM for details.

If you only make UK D width shoes for BB, is a Peal Co E width shoe simply your CJ E width as well? confused.gif

 



I'm confused as well. I own a Peal monk strap in 9.5C. They had C, D and I believe E widths available in-store to try on.

Why don't you try googling? Quite a few places sell them - Pediwear have a few, as do Bodileys and I suspect the Shoehealer does as well.

Yes, good experiences with Pediwear and Bodiley's

Peter Johnston comes out cheaper than C&J for hand grades (cheaper shipping).

I thought it was a full size so UK9E = US10D. At least that's what my Marlows seem like. I have US10D Marlows but I usually wear a UK9E in C&J. I'm pretty sure a US9.5D would be too small for me so I'd go a full size.

BTW, Barneys is the same IMO (UK9E=US10D). I have the Wicklow and Clifford from them.

I've ordered from Robert Old before too.

I think it depends on the last.

FWIW, I go down a full size in C&J (8.5E) from my US TTS 9.5D. However, in the AE Strand (5 last) I take a 9D. So a recommendation that I go down a half size from my AE Strand size would have been correct.

5 last is one of AEs longest and narrowest lasts though. Lots of people go down .5US in them, so going down 1UK from your regular size seems pretty reasonable.

We are in agreement.

I wear a 9D in the shell Strands and my 348 lasted UK 8.5E Drummonds are too loose for my tastes in hind sight. I am not sure if I would be able to fit into a UK 8E though. May need a UK 8F. I don't have particularly wide feet either.

Asked about the RL shoes as I'm usually a 10UK in C&J in wider lasts (although I have never had a UK marked C&J shoe). I have 10.5D on Marlows and Lindricks but 11D on 325 Black Fleece shoes. 11d 337 handgrades are also a goof fit. The width on Marlows is a bit tight for me width wise but not an issue on the other pairs. So kind of think it's half size and down width as RL does D width on EG and it seems like their AEs and Rancourts are all on the narrow side as well

Hi Rc121/othertravel, 

 
Unfortunately, I gave the forum slightly wrong info yesterday... As it turns out we do also supply E width to our US wholesale customers (occasionally). So... I will give you an example of an E width conversion and a D width conversion from Crockett & Jones US to Crockett & Jones UK.
 
If you are size US 7 E in, you will be a UK 6 1/2 E in our own shop (Width stays the same size is down by 1/2)
 
If you are size US 7 D in, you will be a UK 6 to 6 1/2 E in our own shop (Width increases by 1 stop, so size decreases by up to 1 whole size (1/2 for the width and 1/2 for the US-UK sizing)).  We focus mainly on E width on our store so this conversion might be more useful.
 
Another anomaly and the biggest factor in any fitting discussion is last shape. This 100% determines how a shoe will fit and wear and the ONLY way to guarantee a, your shoe fits how it should, is to get measured up by an experience Retail Assistant and to try the shoes on!

Soon found out that the half-bellows tongue on the Snowdown would have been useful as the mud in places was deep enough to get in round the sides of the tongue. Otherwise fantastic boots for the terrain.

 

My apologies to those who baby their footwear:

 

 

Hi CT Brummie,

 
We love these, but we are concerned at the health of our Production Manager should he ever see these photos!
 
You are the first customer, we know of, to use Crockett & Jones shoes for Paint Balling. Not a bad advert for British construction!
 
All the best and good to see you fully enjoying your shoes.
 
Crockett & Jones
