Just got back my Harlech boots from B. Nelson shoes in NYC. They did an excellent job putting in flush metal toe taps.

Nothing like that though.  Some other Donegal tweed merchants have things close, but more like flecked grey.  If anyone is looking, snag that picture and send it to them and ask if they have it made up.  Looks like a custom run though.  Maybe a GWTO thread is needed!

It is a custom-run...

Hey, I have some C&J's in calf; I have low(er) volume feet and now I want a pair of C&J in suede. The calf's that I have are all in 7,5Uk and fit me rather well, except one in 348-last that is a tad tight, but still ok. I read on shoesnob that suede shoes are dangerous for people with low volume feet because they will stretch more. True? What is your expierence? Do you take the same size as usual or do you size down half a size? I don't like my shoes too snug.

Cheers!

@Tuur  if you intend to order "unlined" suede footwear from C&J, then my recent experience below may be helpful when considering the issue of sizing.

 

--

 

- Lined C&J shoes (348 Westbourne) and boots (348 Tetbury) fit me snugly, in size UK10E.  

- Recently, I purchased a few pairs of "unlined" suede 348 Milton and 359 Hartland boots, in down sized UK9.5E.  The unlined Hartland boots have had their maiden voyages and have been worn in now.  

- Unlike the lined boots, the unlined boots have noticeably stretched since being worn in and have become somewhat loose fitting.  Consequently, I intend to order some 359 insocks for my Hartland boots, which hopefully will result in a snug fit again.  

- With the benefit of hindsight, I perhaps should have down sized one whole size for the unlined Hartland boots, rather than a half size.  So, it's something to think about -- if you intend to order unlined suede footwear from C&J.  

- Alas, we only learn the nuances of the various C&J last and material fit variations through practical experience or vicariously from others, by reading forums like SF.

- I don't regret my unlined Hartland boots purchase, they're a very nice casual boot and I enjoy wearing them.  :)

Day 2 at the track. Great boots. I wore these for 4 days straight, all up hill, down, city walking and my feet couldn't be happier. My buddy has a smart watch that clocks step. We were over 10,000 a day. He wore sneaks and his feet were killing him after day 2.
