I couldnt disagree any further. A snug fit shoe will take a long time to feel better and most folks will not have the patience or will power to get to that point. Then they go on the methods of bending the shoes in weird ways, stretching, and doing some stupid things. If you buy a shoe that is comfortable it will stay comfortable. If a shoe fits well off the bat it wont stretch out, itll break in. Dont buy shoes that are snug, buy shoes that are comfortable.

I actually have an Inverness in size 8 and I feel it is slightly too big. Just enough to cause a little trouble. I think it is on the 82 last but I can't remember off the top of my head. The adderly is better but maybe because it is a boot. That is why I was considering a 7.5.

@justinkapur So true!  You hit the nail on the head! Do it the right way the first time to save you the hassle, anguish, and of course the money involved in this shoe addiction of ours.

Not quite, if they are on leather sole, which I think is the case here (based on the upper, shaft composition)

I mean no disrespect as well to the original poster. Ive probably spent upwards of $10-$15K on shoes in the last few years because I love the aesthetic of the shoe and hope they fit. I buy them and they are slightly snug or slightly short and im like they will stretch or attempt to do it myself (I own stretchers, thats how much I wanted ill fitting shoes to fit). Regardless I think buying at the end of the day and trying on after foot is completely swollen will be the best indicator of shoe fit.

I phoned Jermyn Street to enquire about the Soho (Chelsea boot with no seam below the elasticated part a la G&G Burnham) that was posted a few weeks back.

 

They are hoping for Summer delivery but nothing is definite. Don't know if this had been mentioned but thought it may be of interest to others as it looks to be a very nice option.

Just curious if you have ever experienced this: Shoes fit really well at the shop, but after a few wears at home/work/outside etc, you started recognising that fit is not as good as what you used to think  ?

Love my chestnut utah Dovers, but the gold utah that @RogerP posted looked great... might try to darken my chestnut utah Galways a tad

I have 2 MTO's in process with Steve myself, so it sounds like we're keeping the man pretty busy :)

 

Camden is really nice. I figured shorter Camden will fit our westcoast customers better so decided to order some in Brown Utah :)

 

I maybe wrong here but I think coffee is still available (maybe until it runs out kind of situation?)

Anyways not the best picture but here is Tobacco (left), Nutmeg (middle), new Snuff (right)

 

 

Here is new Utah color Cloud if anyone is interested :)

Unfortunately most of my shoe purchases in store were snug and recently my purchases have been mostly EG where I have tried on 3 lasts and I for the most part wear them exclusively (888, 606, 202, and ordered the 82 after trying)

Your response does not surprise me at all. When I talk about a snug fit I am not talking about a fit that severely hurts ones foot when wearing the shoe, I mean that the shoes sort of hugs the foot all around without cramping the foot in any manner. Maybe on the first 3-8 wears my shoes may hurt my small toe on the right foot because my right foot is just a tad bigger than my left, and sizing up half a size would cause the shoes to be way too big on my left foot especially after they have been truly broken in.

What I feel that many people overlook when trying on a pair, is that the shoe will break in, this is inevitable. Wearing shoes that are too large for you will not prevent the cork filled sole from giving in somewhat and molding to your foot. The leather will stretch across the vamp due to moist, heat and motion, the cork filled sole will give in after some wears due to the heat your foot gives off and your body weight. So if the shoes are snug or loose on initial fit, you can know of a fact as the will gain some more volume in the forefoot/midfoot area after more and longer wears.

Furthermore if the laces are already almost closed on initial fit they are only going to close even more after as the shoes beak in. How are you going to tighten your shoes once your laces fully meet each other? Please explain Justin.

Look at some pics of your brand new pairs of shoes below. They already have deep, wide and ugly creases across the vamp (first wears), the laces are almost closed, and the shaft of your Galways look terrible. Dude you have some serious issues. Down the road the issues you already have will only get worse. My Galways per example I have worn almost a 100 times and done heavy miles in them and are now due for a full resole. They have uppers that look almost brand new, with only some superficial creasing across the vamp and are extremely comfortable yet still snug Explain that? My explanation to this is that you are wearing shoes that are too big for you.

Follow Justins advice and you will get Justins outcome. Just saying.

My advice is to go to the store, preferably E.G. themselves and have them take your size with a Bannock device, say the Bannock devices says you are a UK7E, try the UK7E and go off that, if they feel too loose, try and experience a UK6 1/2E. Do a similar reevaluation for the UK 6 1/2E. Have the fitter feel how you foot fills the shoe if you are inexperienced, he will check the fit of the shoe at various key points (heel, vamp, instep, toe box), then wear and experience this shoe for 200 hours before buying another shoe from the same brand. After the break in, you should go back to the fitter in the same pair of shoes and have him check the fit again. Have him check the same key points as well as the creasing etc. If all is well then you know you size for that brand on that specific last. With E.G. that same size will likely be good over all their lasts. Take my advice and you will get my results (well fitting shoes).

Disclaimer: Not every sales rep with a Bannock device knows how to truly fit someone correctly. I have been given terrible advice buy sales reps of John Lobb in Paris and by C&J NYC. I recommend Alex from E.G. Paris when it comes to fitting.
