Old picture. I have black now. The other two are just a pipe dream. If you have a lead on a Strand in walnut shell in 12 EEE let me know.

I totally get that.

 

This is why I prefer Alden's actually.  Not because of their superior...

 

But, rather the Barrie last in US 10E is one of the best fits for me of all time.

 

Thanks.

It's funny how subjective fit can be. I've spent a lot of money trying to get the Barrie last to fit me, and had nothing but ill luck!

Listen to ya boy and go for the 10EEE and/or the 10.5EE.

 

Trubalance was designed for fat footed gents like you and me.  Try that one too.

These are indeed one of the finest examples of AE shoe making I've ever seen.  Wear in good health Sir.

These are still one of my All Time favs.  Walnut Cordovan Strands.  (10EEE by the way, a day late and 2 lengths short)  :)

A fantastic collection, and a fantastic shine on these.  Are the Rancourt shoes resoleable?

What a collection! What's your method? Saphir renovateur and cordovan cream polish? Or just renovateur? Or something else?
