Also, for the New Yorkers, Phillip will be in town on the 25th and 26th to take orders for MTO and Pret Customized.  If you've never been fit by him, it's worth a visit.  Any questions, you can PM me or shoot us an email at nyc@thearmoury.com

6.5E? I assume that's their narrow size. wow, I'm a US 7D (6.5E in EG and G&G) and I thought 6F in SC would fit. Are they that much longer?

Good to know. I got rid of many shoes because the cup is too shallow. Thanks.

I was comparing the classic last on my chukkas to my f -last vass derbies and preferred the look of the f-last by a large margin.....f last is probably the sexiest round last ive seen....and its side walls are just perfection.

I've had a few Last Pairs that looked 100% new and fresh out of the box, but some of the Saint Crispin's have been around for nearly three years now. The pair I received had creasing and the highly polished areas had some checking in the finish. With the deal, they were fine with me, and would look similar after a few wears anyway. I just hit them with conditioner/polish and they are already one of my favorites.

+1 just got a pair of 106's off their last pair. One shoe has been tried on and worn as it has slight creasing. Doesn't bother me as they will have this after me wearing.

I have no experience with the classic, but the sailor on my boots is great. The chiseled, I wouldn't say that very quickly.

I am having this issue with the pair that I just got, has anyone else had this? The shoe is very stiff right now, wondering if it will loosen up and not dig in as much as time goes on.

@DpprDr, yes, you will be ok with a UK 6F, or US 7D in leathersoul. It does have higher and very contoured heel cup, I use a customised classic last, been relasted due to a painful 1st modification.

@jkater1, their leather is very stiff and will be painful if one area isn't the right fit.

Quick question, I've read through the thread and see that Saphir Reno is a no no. On my boots the base leather is starting to look very dry and looks kind of like dry cracking skin. Normally I would hit this up with Reno. Picture isn't great but kind of shows what they look like. Thoughts on treatment?

I have been using the Lexol leather conditioner. And the result is quite satisfactory.

It will break in after a few wears, but optimally its best to request MTO with a lowered top line.  Alternatively, you could use a heel cushion to lift your ankles a bit higher.

Probably not. I got mine the when they had them some up on the last pair page a few weeks ago they sold them all in a half day.

I personally love Saint Crispin's Chisel, it's one of my favorites.

 

I like a subtle rounded chisel, I feel it's more wearable then a screwdriver style last.

 

Here are mine.
