^ I like the dark brown.  I'm 50/50.  I'd need to get comfortable on my sizing - will write to Skoak.

Fair enough, we'll keep plugging along and seeing if we can get 8 interested.

I suspect if you went UK6.5 they might be too short, maybe just try a tongue pad so you can get the lacing tighter and take up a little volume if needed. The UK7 in the 234 last is boarderline short for my slightly longer left foot (I am about 8.25D brannock). So far I found that I can wear light and mid weight socks no problem but thicker socks add a bit too much pressure to my left pinky since the left foot is more forward in the shoe. The 234 last is the most roomy they say so if you are still considering the 316 last field boot that makes me think the UK7 would be a great fit in that for you.

 

If in the end they don't work out, let me know. I have some Dovers in a similar color but not grain so I might consider them.

 

Thanks for this. I agree that the 6.5 might be too short. I think my problem is lack of volume with my feet and not the length as you correctly stated. I'll use a tongue pad or something if I need to snug these up a little, or I'll just wear a little thicker socks with them. I definitely will do everything I can to make these work as they are beautiful!

Lovely! Can I confirm that you take the exact same size as shoes, and they fit the same? I`m 8 1/2 E in GG and was swimming in their boots when I tried one on in Savile Row....thanks

What last is this on?

It would be a deep oxblood but with slight tints of deep purple as well.

You guys should seriously consider making the chukka a regular, SkoaB only, permanent stock model.
It will be a perennial (especially autumn) favorite!

Yes!

And let's pray that Tärnsjö develops a dark burgundy version of their grain so we can all go chukka bonaza again, again, again biggrin.gif

Part of the charm with GMTOs is the nature of the whole group buying mentality, it does not always translate to RTW. But we will surely see more Oak Tärnsjö make ups in the future from Bonafè! You can be sure of that.
