^Hey guys - the Oak Street site is down for maintenance. If you guys need anything - just post here.

Also - in regard to the Elston, it is standard D only. With all our other mocs however, we can do pretty much every width

Hey kwhitelaw, shoot me an email - I should be able to find a photo of that boot for you. If we have more of the fabric, no problemo! To refresh your memory, it was the hunt boot with side panels made of the of Faribault Woolen Mill's foot soldier blanket wool - the blanket that was given to every soldier during WWI and WWII.

Nerkg - great to hear! Keep enjoying them. I love the fact that the Trench boot is so fucking comfortable - I get compliments on them regularly =)

I read through a few of the posts here and have a question:

 

I know OSB only has D widths right now for the trench boot, but how is the width fitting on this for some of you guys? I saw a post a page back where a guy said he can wear EEE's comfortable and the D on this last is a touch wide! This is crazy!

 

I wanted these trench boots from the instant they dropped them and I wear an 8.5EEE in AE's 5-65 and 8.5EE (could have been 3E, or even 8 3E) in Rancourt's handsewn last, but am not going to spend that kind of money just to see if a last fits my feet. I'm in the midwest with little access to any brick & mortar stores, so does anyone have width sizing advice for these boots?

A lot of folks wearing wide-width shoes are wearing them because of high-insteps, too. Wide-width shoes are typically more voluminous overall.

I'm normally a Trubalance 8.5E-maybe EE/EEE-but too hard to find. E width is hard enough to find plus my feet are only wide in the forefoot area vs. the heel. Anyway I have OSB Trench boots in 9d and they are plenty wide. Not sure how to quantitatively describe it but from the heel forward the Elston last seems to be wider exactly where my foot is wide-just before the little toe. They fit so well it's what I would expect from a bespoke pair of boots.

So what's this rumour I hear about a shell version of the trench boot?
post #1090 of 2988
That would be insane

^Just when I'm getting ready to drop on some Aldens... now I have to wait to see what all this shell business is about.
post #1093 of 2988

Quick sizing question: I wear the trail oxfords in 8.5 (I could probably afforded to size down to 8, but I like my shoes a little bit roomier than most). Which size would be best for the elston lasted trench boot?

post #1094 of 2988
Unless OSB has a stockpile of shell already in hand and/or has already made boots, this is wishful thinking. There is a massive shell cordovan shortage, even Alden can't get any right now apparently. Too many people are coveting it, not enough horses. So unless hooker4186 is willing to say where he heard this rumor, I think he's just trying to stir up a whole bunch of trouble among boot fans.
