Whoops, sorry. Thought you were talking about the museum balmoral boot.

OK, yeah for museum calf I would go either Dainite or leather.

I realized I am waiting on this exact model in brown pebble grain.  Probably going to wait and see how they fit before hopping on another version.  Sounds like a great makeup though.

My thoughts exactly.

Any interest in a double monk, dark Brown museum calf in Rain last?
post #2798 of 4730
Do you all notice a difference in size between monks and oxfords? The rain last only just works with my low instep and I've been reluctant to get monks because I'm afraid they'll be looser than my lace-ups.
post #2799 of 4730
They definitely fit differently for me. A rain monk that I tried on was a bit too full for my liking in the same size as my oxfords. However, half a size down crowded my toes too much.

Any of you take a rain last in the narrow offering? Wondering how that compares to simpson in an oxford.

 

Also, so many MTOs but so little money! I'm waiting to see how the grain 973 captoes look when they come in.

   I can compare Rain D width to the standard Simpson width if that would help

   Simpson is a great fit for me and so is the Rain D . . . . primarily width at the ball for the Rain

   The Rain D does have a slightly wider heel cup than Simpson but not enormously so for me.

 

   both are laceups btw :  suede saddle shoe for the simpson & shell 2 eye'd derby for the Rain

There seems to be a lot of things in motion here, but also expressing interest in a CXL boot on one rubber sole or another, preferably in a wider-fitting last (I'll have to take a wide size anyway, but it doesn't hurt to be in one of the winder offerings...).

Commando? Never thought about it to be honest. Would be open to it

If you are looking for a serious winter-time kick ass sole...commando is way better than dainite...which is why i think it makes more sense than a double dainite...double dainte would just give you some extra height....commando will give you lots of grip and make you impervious to any foul weather...much more useful in winter or in mud, etc. than dainite.
