I thought the unlined version is on the leydon which isn't available in extra wide widths?
post #437 of 469

I though you could get that made up on Barrie???

 

Perhaps not unlined but nice nonetheless.

 

Enzo Bonafe?

I've never heard of anyone doing an unlined chukka on Barrie. Though I'm not sure why not, if they can do the unlined Dover on Barrie...

Allen Edmonds usually does a suede unlined chukka every fall: amok, Gobi, Mojave. I'm sure they'll introduce a new one soon. They run Es abd EEEs as stock.

Rancourt does an excellent one, as well. Also Loake and Church! And they'll do G widths.

If you don't mind dropping one large, the Edward Green Shanklin appears to be superlative, according to Everyone. And they'll make it in F or G width for you without an up charge.

And even more expensive is the JohnLobb Romsay in EE.

I have this Alden in a 7 E, bought used from a forum member.  http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-mens-chukka-boot-barrie-last-dark-brown-kudu-1272s?gclid=CLWkovjEss4CFQEOaQodt7ABnQ

 

Edit:  Here they are in E width.  https://aldenshop.com/Store/DrawProducts.aspx?CategoryID=66&ParentID=4&PageID=&Action=

 

Also, Church (as Pepper mentions) and Cheaney make G fitting Chukka boots.

 

And Clark's makes a wide fitting Chukka I think.  Also, I find Clark's (and most) boots generally run wide so it might be worth giving a D width a try if returns are free.

Does anyone have 13EEE that they are looking to get off their hands?

Moulded Shoe in NYC carries a good collection of Alden Modified Lasts in EEE.  I have bought four Alden ML in 9.5 EEE to date and tried on each one in the store before buying.

 

Given my challenges getting shoes to fit, I would be very very reticent about paying for a non-returnable MTO shoe without trying it on first.....

I have a lot of trouble fitting into loafers due to a wide forefoot. Anyone know of any options? I can usually wear AE Park Aves in 10.5EE

X-post from the B&S.

Up for sale is a pair of very gently worn Crockett and Jones "Draycott" derbies in size 9G UK.

I have been on the fence whether or not to keep these. They fit me very well, but I never bring them out because they are hard to pair with dark suits. I have worn them no more than 3 times.

I had them professionally "topy'd" by B. Nelson shoe repair in New York. (That is, they put the protective Vibram plastic top layer on the sole to give it some water resistance and better traction --- http://www.bnelsonshoes.com/high_grade_shoes.aspa $40 excluding the shipping I paid for both ways).

These will come with the original C&J box labeled "Draycott, 9G" and the original green cloth bags. They will NOT come with the shoe trees pictured. I am keeping those for my other C&Js. smile.gif
Outsole length, tip to heel: 12.15 inches
Outsole width, at widest: 4.35 inches
Insole length, from tip to heel: 11.6 inches

Selling these to clear out of my closet. My loss is your gain! Kind of sad to see these go.

$299 shipped CONUS. Sale is final.

I'll ship to any country. PM me for shipping quotes outside the CONUS.

Try the Lakewood. Only AE loafer I've been able to get in to.

This is a X post for all my EEE width friends. I wanted to share a wonderful #8 shell PTB sold by Barrie Ltd. that I picked up on Ebay. Barrie sold this 10.5 EEE beauty before they closed in 2004. The actual age of the shoe is not known and it was apparently made in England, likely by Cheaney & Sons. The Barrie store sold fine menswear to Yale students for over 70 years and had all of their shoes produced for them by other top shoemakers. It is a standard PTB, with the exception of the stitching detail on the side of each lace area, as shown in the images. My estimate is that they were worn 10-15 times, as indicated by the clean interior label. The shoe gods did not smile on me and the 10.5 just would not work with my size 11 feet. I expect that it will be relisted on Ebay within the next week, so look for it if you are a 10.5. As for me, I am now on the lookout for a size 11, but doubt that I will ever locate another one like this.

Hey @peppercorn78, I saw in the Bonafé thread that you picked up a pair on the 804. How did you find the fit vs the 946? I've stayed away from the 804 since it doesn't have as wide a fitting as the 946.

Last: New Peter (P2)
Model: 1085 chukka boot
Leather: Olive green suede
Sole: Double leather sole
Toe: Sunken metal
Lacing: Three holes
Size 43.5
Width: H

Generally I have a great fit in AE 5-65 last in size US10.5 EEE, so based on the collection of @peppercorn78 it should work.

Anyway, I'd just like to thank y'all for contributing to this thread, hopefully I can pitch in too.

 

Hi all,

 

I just picked up this order at the Shoegazing Super Trunk in Stockholm, Sweden, this weekend. As promised, here are a couple of pics and some first impressions.

 

Open Sesame:

 

 

First wear:

 

My first impression is that the fit is spot on! I had a pair of Crockett & Jones Brecon in UK 9.5G as reference and the Vass Sales Manager Rezsö Kuti recommended EUR 43.5 i H-width.

 

The double leather soles are a bit "clunky" but previous shoes with double leather soles have all been the same. Three months in, they're as supple as single leather soles or even Dainites. Sunken metal toe taps is something I added as an experiment, I don't really wear down the toe. Guess I'm just longing to show them off, heh.

 

The color is really hard to capture, but looks great IRL. The suede is really nice and thick.

 

So, downside? Maybe they look a bit... sturdy? I know it's the P2-last doing its thing, and I'm the one who picked it. Also the suede creases over the instep, but the I have crazy high instep so that was to be expected.

 

Will I get another pair from Vass in the future? Oh yes. In the near future? Oh yes, if I can trick my wife to look the other way...

Hey bro! Sorry I missed this. In my opinion, other than both having a huge and cavernous instep, I do not find the two lasts comparable.

My big toes are quite elongated, so the 804 fits me well (aside from having to use a tongue pad in the instep). The 946 has a more sloped toebox so I needed the largest width.

I sized both in length at 10, but some size the 946 .5 more to compensate for narrow toes. The 804 is a tad longer from heel to ball. It is very similar to the Lobb 7000, but slightly less volume overall.
