I suspect they are boxes for the Chelseas and Coniston boots.

All green boxes are c&j apart from one on bottom left (sort of). I was looking for Chelsea 3 for a long time in my size and was unable to find. I got the shipton & heneage Bingham boot instead which is made by c&j and is almost identical.

Do you have any more pics of the "Budapester" wingtip? That one looks really nice

Did you by chance get it at the C&J factory store? I think I once saw that Budapester model mentioned when someone was showing pictures of the factory. Might have been @Cleav

I'm considering organizing an MTO for that model at some point. Do you know the last? Any more pics

Thanks for the info
So, what time would you recommend to go to the factory shop in Northampton, after the their in store sales or before or they have stocks all year round?
Besides, do they have handgrades seconds in factory shop as well
Do they come in many sizes?

For example, you can find the Coniston rejected boots for 200 GBP in Northampton FS now, while even they do appear in London store as seconds they will cost 295 GBP. That's how it was last Summer when I phoned their London store during the sale.

I haven't been in CJ FS yet, however, as with any other FS, it's a matter of luck that day. I would suggest you visit them before the London Sale, meaning just about now if you are able to do so.

The lady over the phone was very informative, I found they had most of the styles I was looking for. (Coniston Boot, Islay, some oxfords), and I'm a size UK 9 E. However, they are not allowed to post the shoes outside the shop.

It would be clever you ask before you go. Lady mentioned, shes willing to reserve a pair for me until I visit them, but I didn't want her to do that as I wasn't sure when will I visit the shop.

No handgrade in FS in general - but given there are lots if GMTO going on you may be lucky.

I once saw a few pairs of skye in shell cordovan as well, shame that they were not my size

On that note, that could be the difference between FS and london shop sale then. I definitely saw handgrade on sale in their store in CW (10% only though)
