I dont know what's considered a good opening, I just know that if you can close it fully, its too large and you cant fix your foot obviously. 1/2 cm sounds pretty acceptable to me. 
Also, for me there is quite a big difference in how swollen my feet are between a warm summer day and a cool autumn/spring day. Something to think of when you are trying out shoes in cold weather.

Great smile.gif thanks for your help I think I will go ahead and but a pair of Alex in that case!

Your shoes have held up nicely; mine are more creased.

Thank you

Received the following response from C&J:

Thank you for your enquiry through our website and your interest in Crockett & Jones.

Cavalry Calf is a corrected leather but it is very strong and hard wearing. We only source leather from the best European tanneries so our cavalry calf is very high quality and will wear well.

If you have any further questions then please let us know.

Kind regards,

Thanks, although to be honest I dont use them that much just because of that reason.

Knowing what I know now, that's why I, today, would have gone for the Westbourne instead of the Alex.

But, like kaizo, I doubt that I could have been persuaded to go for the Westbourne at the when time I bought them :)

had these been yours, they'd probably see a little more polish and cream.



and if these were mine, it would take a considerable amount of effort not to clean this pair

Agreed and understood, Namor, but you've got to admit these look fantastic.
(I think we'd probably also use shoe trees)
