What color of shoe polish have you decided to use on these by the way?

I've used burgundy and neutral polish... depending on my mood.

Yeah I figured neutral, but I hadn't thought about using burgundy.

 

 

Thanks,

Thanks,

My bad Dan, I meant bordeaux (AKA mahogany). Sorry for the confusion.

I believe Bordeaux and mahogany are two different colors.

I'll check when I get home... man, life was easier when all I had to remember were rainbow colors. baldy[1].gif

It's the other red-ish color not Chanel Red.

No problem.

I am thinking of ordering a pair of Hannover boots on the AS 87 last, but wonder how the size is. I have somewhat widish but not really wide feet. I wonder if I should take a chance on my usual size or go up a half-size.

 

For reference:

 

*I can wear Tricker's 1929 last comfortably in its normal width, but in the rounder-toed Jermyn Street last (for some strange reason) I need to go up a half-size.

*In C&J I need the F width (i.e. one step above their "normal" E width) in the 341 and the 236 (Connaught) lasts, while the E width is too tight on my outer toes and the G-width C&J shoes tend to be too loose in the heel unless I go down a size.

*Meermin's Hiro last fits me comfortably. (I have seen other people claim that this is narrow but I find it similar to the F-width C&J Connaught).

*Meermin's Rui is OK, but just a little bit too roomy (may work for winter boots worn with thick socks but probably not for shoes, as they would slip).
