post #6031 of 12858

Just pulled the trigger on a pair of Skye II's, just have to wait a few weeks and should have them in time to break in at the Spring Meet (hopefully they lend me a little luck).

I have 3 pairs of Monkton's and each one fits differently, especially my dark grown golf grain which is much larger than the other two.

 

Having owned and currently owning many C&J's I have to say that the sizes can definitely very from shoe to shoe, even being on the same last.

This is a bit sad. And probably also means that it's dangerous to buy online, even on a well familiar last.

I didn't mean to say that the size won't still fit you...just that they fit a little differently and that can be adjusted pretty easily depending on how you lace your shoes or by adding a pad at the heel, etc.

 

I understand the pains of those who do not live near a retailer that they can try the shoes on...as this is the case for me with many shoe brands that I love...and through some MTO/semi-bespoke projects I have in the works...but I frequently stop in at the C&J NYC store and try the shoes on...

 

In most cases in C&J I am a 10.5 or an 11 depending on the last. and don't need to try them on if I am familiar with the last...

 

If you know what you are getting into, i think you are still safe buying from an online retailer...If you've never tried on a pair of C&J's before...you should try to get to a store...or you may need to return them for an exchange in the worst-case scenario (which isn't that big of a deal...just requires a good attitude and some patience)...

I agree with PCK1 asi have the same issue with my Pembrokes in 10 and Onslows in 10.5 on the same last.

Well. Leather is organic so it is different hide to hide, also where the clicker is choosing to cut the pieces, combined with the different patterns and variances of human input, all shoes will be slightly different.

But the differences won't be that much and after breaking in, they should feel the same.

From the experience of currently owning 20+ pairs of C&J's, they will feel similar with some degree of difference but not enough to need to size up or down...but on occasion there have been a few that were quite different.

They are dark brown, but the last 2 times I used "Hermes red" Saphir Surfine shoe cream. It gives them a nice patina

I may add that once you have an understanding of your sizing and last preference you can order with confidence from C & J, no question. just saying...
