Also, it seems a I have a number of shoes that just don't fit me well. The Fairmont in Vintage Rioja (I somehow bought two of these without realizing it), Chelsea MH71 (UK 7.5/US 8) in Vintage Cherry, Arran in Black Calf are going back. If you want them, then PM me. Otherwise, I'm taking them back to the store.

I'm on the fence with the Walkton. They're snug. Can't decide if it's too snug.




MH71 works much better than TG73 for me, unfortunately you're not my size, otherwise I would definitely get the Fairmont and possibly Arran...

give them at least 6 wears before deciding. they should soften up and be just right if they are just a bit snug now.

Yeah, I think I can deal with how snug the Walktons are, but I don't think I can handle the Fairmont or Chelsea. Bummer. Really love those colors.

For those who are worried about them being too snug--in my experience, G&Gs break in a pretty good deal. To the point where ones that were really snug are actually kind of loose now.

Pretty similar experience here.
