The fit is good especially with thick socks or an insole as discussed on the last page; just not sure I can get past them being 0.5 to 0.75" longer than all of my other US 13's.  The UK 11.5 / US 12.5 size would be perfect I feel, but Paul Stuart doesn't carry this half size and wasn't part of the sale.  Doesn't appear Barney's carries the 12.5 size either.  Doubt I'd purchase 12.5 at full value if I sell the 13s.

 

Decisions, decisions.  Man I love the look of these boots. Katch worded it perfectly a week ago, "The last is not slim or tapered and these should not be confused with dressy boots. These can be your coolest sh-t kickers and also cleaned up to go out. I really like them"


Pm me also if you're considering letting them go. I tried on the 12UK in london, which I think is what you have, and it fit me well. Remember though that the boots are generous fitting.

 

Also, when I was in London, they didn't have the boot in and F width (wider than standard), but they did have 11.5E UK. If you really loved them, and 12UK isn't the right fit, you should consider ordering right from C&J. It's gonna be a bit more expensive sure, but over the life of the boot (hopefully 10+ years) it won't make a huge difference. You'll wear them more and like them more if they fit.

^Much appreciated. My mistake on the model, these are the Lindrick grain, not Marlow.

I'm wondering between the Lonsdale and the Audley for my formal black oxford, the different is the last only as far as I know (363 vs 337). Can anyone please give me some suggestion?

TBH, while I am a huge shell cordovan fan, I think these maybe even better looking than the shell version!

They seem to have passed the first test because the box and paper was drenched in water or rain whichever it was, thes boots have gotten a little bit wet too. .
It probably happened during the transport. @CTBrummie seems to be impressed by nu-buck leather. Any recommendations on caring for these?

Laufer - how does this 325 lasted boot fit relative to a 325 lasted shoe? The 325 lasted boots I have tried (Coniston, Chepstow) have always had too much room in the vamp (my three pair of 325 lasted shoes all fit great).

Great find, that's an outstanding boot. Should last a very long time, and probably require very little care aside from trees. If anything, very little care will probably aid in developing character over time.

@granjamo
I do not have any 325 lasted shoes. I only have boots on this last.

Has anyone reached out to the NYC store to see what's on sale starting today? I did earlier this week, but haven't received a response yet!
