@dalevyThe kicks, the outfit and the breifcase. Beautiful. As for the "Winter" in Northern Cal, I just spent Christmas in Mammoth. The Winter is REAL:lol:

What size are they? 82 last?



Dovers today

Haha. Thanks bud. Christmas was actually legit cold. I can only imagine what it was like in the mountains. Now it's like 50 to 60.

They do fit, but I find with the 82 last coupled with broguing that my left pinky toe get squished. Also, with this pair, the right shoe has been particularly uncomfortable where they crease across the toes as I walk. But I'm happy to report that neither those problems really occurred much today. They're not slippers, by any means, but perhaps I've finally broken them in to a sufficient degree where I can wear them all day. I have two other pairs of EG on the 82 that are fine. But these have been a struggle, no question.

Justin, yes, 82 last. They are 8.5E UK.

The new 72 last fits me so well I think these are the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever had and the Delapre leather is so soft but very resilient at the same time.


After everyone copying the Galway, I love the Thorpe/Lindrick/Country Boot swoop. 72 last / Ridgeway is great, and I'm sure they'd perfect the toe stitch. On that boot, even five speed hooks would work. They would have sold more of those than the buckle boot.

I don't know. I think the buckle boot has its adherents as well.

I was going to say if it was my size I would have highly considered it! Those are gorgeous. What I discovered is put saphir conditioner for one day and then the next day wear them. The leather becomes softer and molds a bit easier.

I'll give that a try. Thanks!

Gentlemen thank you on the comments for the boots. I never realised that “Delapre,” is such an amazingly supple and beautiful leather, it was really difficult to capture the real colour last night but I will take a better picture in the sunlight. Anyone with broad feet and any pinching toe issues like me must try the new 72 last, it is so comfortable.

Lovely shoes but as Roger said if they don't feel comfortable then they are no good for you. I love the look of the 82 last but sadly cannot wear any shoe or boot made on them.
post #24837 of 28933
Interesting you should say that Farhad. One of my Dovers (DOAK) is on the 82 and they will have to go. Wore them for the fourth time yesterday and just not perfect/right, particularly when I wear the 606 Dover which is like a slipper on me.

EG Camden on 82 fits perfectly however!

I think the Dover on the 606 last is perfect, sorry to hear about the Dover on the 82 last is no good for you. I have had to pass on a lovely pair of Dover in chestnut on the 202 last because of these boots I bought yesterday but I love them to bits!

Dover on 82 is my dream :)

I have a pair of Navy suede Southwold's on the 82. Took me 2 years to break them in. Granted, I didin't wear them often, but even after having Leathersoul stretch them, it took quite some time.

 

They're fine now, but 82? Never again.
