Non sequitur - does anyone have thoughts or real world experience with a shoe that is mainly pin grain leather?  I love the Chestnut pin grain, but I wonder if it would be too much for a whole shoe?

Pin grain is so small it's hardly noticeable unless you are staring at the shoe. It's like my GG hatch grains. Look plain unless your staring at it. I would kop

To clarify, when I'm referring to length I mean where my ball is, not the toes. Toes feel fine in both shoes and mh71 is probably a little longer overall. In mh71, my ball is probably a little more forward on the ridge than I'd like.

As for narrowness, I don't know why the opposite experience if happening for justin. Probably foot shape and the more pronounced beveling has something to do with it.

Of course some Lasting variances can occur from shoe to shoe as well. However for one to find it shorter than another seems strange. Unless this perception is somehow caused by the toe box being so narrow for their foot it causes them to believe the actual shoe is shorter.

Based on the TG73 that I own I would have to imagine your description of the length of the MH71 would be more accurate.

Ok, this helps to further understand what your talking about. Thanks

I think just my experience through the toe box. The width and length across the ball of my foot is almost identical.

I also could make the comparison accurately now that I have close laced shoes not bluchers.

Regardless both feel almost comparable in terms of fit. Aesthetically it's i guess from the eye of the beholder. Instep is a whole different category. 888 has a higher I step (laces don't close all the way) where the MH71 has a lower instep (closes all the way).

Just for sake of putting it out there I'm not sure if my high vs low instep terminology was accurate so I put in the paranthesis what I meant by it

The more information the better and it sure helps to better understand what it might be like. Of course how a specific Last will fit will in the end come down to my foot.

Thanks,

Pin grain is awesome, you should go for it or organize GMTO. See here http://www.styleforum.net/t/291745/edward-green-appreciation-pictures-info-and-where-to-buy/19755#post_7984796
