I always suffer the pain of driving on my shoes. Not willing to treat them permanently.

White beautiful and extremely comfortable, they are not best solution

Just my 2 cts

Yea, it was unsolicited but not unnecessary.

Also, if you are going to advocate class, then you contradict yourself when you label a friend's comment as cute. To me, that is more denigrating.


Just for the avoidance of doubt, I was upset or had my feelings hurt by the comment on the fit. I took a chance by getting someone else to buy them for me in a sample sale.

 

Interesting that they might be some rebranded AC's!!

Since I posted the initial comment about the lacing, I guess I'll apologize to jamiemc and anyone else who may have taken it a passive aggressive comment. That was not the intention; rather, I was simply curious if the poster preferred the wider v-lacing (it seems most comments on SF lean towards closed or a tighter v). I wasn't trying to critique it backhandedly...moreso curious since we rarely see posters with the wider v-lacing.

Turns out he wasn't able to try on, which explains the wider lacing. Nevertheless, the color and richness is fantastic and the fact they may be Nakagawa is even better.

No, no, you're wrong. You were passive aggressive. No two ways about it. ;)

Just noticed my typo, I meant to say I wasn't upset etc etc. so no need to apologise.

 

I do prefer a closer V but the shape of my foot (short, slim but high instep), means I will only be able to get this with a bespoke shoe, which with a 7 month old baby and a wife on maternity leave means it's not going to happen any time soon. So I get my shoe fix though sales. I took a chance here as my Chelsea's on a 202 fit pretty well in a 7, theses are 7 \ 7.5 (not sure what this means to be honest)  so one might assume they would close a bit more, but this is not the case.

 

Anyway I'm off to London tomorrow for a couple of days and have a few hours to kill in the west end, so I'll have a wonder down Jermyn street, and try not to cause any damage to my credit card balance. also planning to drop in on Sunspell, Drakes and Thom Sweeny RTW. unfortunately I don't think there are any sales on at the moment.

You shouldn't have to apologize. I am of the opinion that such comments should be encouraged. If we are gonna wear a refined product, then we ought to do it with elegance.

You need not go the bespoke route if it is just the instep that needs modification. This can be addressed via MTO. If you are willing, then ask for Robert, but others should be able to help you too, at the Jermyn street store and ask him to raise the instep on your MTO. Among others, I believe @coldinboston has had this done.

Yes, when you order an MTO shoe via EG you can ask for 1/16, 1/8, or 3/16" instep fitting to make the instep more accomodating. Other than the aesthetic component of the lacing, it also makes a big difference in fit if you have a high instep like I do (from you description in appears that you do). I do that now on any MTO EG order.
There was no extra charge for this service in addition to any other MTO fees, but i am not sure if that differs from retailer to retailer.

Nice shoes.

post #28093 of 28945

Alright, dammit, I can't lie to myself anymore looking at my 82 lasted Chelsea thinking they are good enough when in reality they will never be as cool as those 202F lasted Chelsea in my eyes! 

I have checked the complete Edward Green stockist list and it appears there is currently 0 (zero) places in Europe which stock a Dark Oak 202F lasted Chelsea. 

Does someone know any EU retailer where I could double check this other than those listed on their web site?  

The irony is that with the recent pound value it would be cheapest to order them from the Jermyn Street, though there's a massive waiting time period of up to 14 weeks.

If no one could assist I'll just order them via their London Shop.
