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 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!!
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.
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.
