Phenomenal boots.  Where did you get those?

I think that many people excuse them because they have the brand name Wolverine, which are generally mass produced leather boots which are made at the Wolverine factory, but the 721 ltd and 744 ltd are not only made in a separate factor, but they are made by Allen Edmonds who is one of two shoe companies who are experts in working with cordovan (other being Alden). In my opinion, these two boots are of even a higher quality than Allen Edmonds regular stock (Dalton's, etc.)

I have Alden's, Vibergs, Tricker's, Carmina's, Allen Edmonds and some others in cordovan and the Wolverine LTD 744 and 721 are, in my opinion, the most well made of the lot.

Nice shoes man, but do they fit?  Looks like nearly an inch of gap behind your heel.

Fit fine. I'm a little contorted sticking my hand out, bending sideways and trying to snap a pix with an iphone. Thanks.

Looks like Herring Shoes are no longer holding stock of Church's Grafton and Shannon in Burgundy Crup (Cordovan).

They've added the limited sizes they have left to the sale and seconds section which you can access from the home page

http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/

There seem to be more Graftons than Shannons, none that I can see in UK7 to UK8.5 but there are some smaller sizes and UK9s and larger. Still pricey at 425GBP inc VAT but decent discount from the RRP of 575GBP.

Warning: the picture they use for Grafton is not the current version of the shoe, the image is of the previous Church 100 last that Prada introduced when they took over the company. Prooved unpopular even though it really suited Grafton, and was replaced by the current 173 last which is the last version Herrings are actually selling.

Anyone here have experience with Brunello Cucinelli shell cordovan shoes??  They look pretty good but man are they expensive $1,800-2,000.  Are they worth that kind of scratch?  If not, what would be the appropriate price range.  I saw some nice looking whiskey, burgundy, and ravello-like shell on sale (PTB's and Cap Toe Blucher) at an outlet store for about $1,000 each.  Thanks in advance...

As someone looking to get his first pair of cordovan shoes in plain toe blucher style or chukka boot, is it a bad idea to order a $640 Carmina shoe online internationally (shipping included) with only a rough estimate of size? I dont need a very proper fit, and I don't really like the clunky toes and lasts of the cordovan shoes made here in the US.
