LOAKE APPRECIATION & SHOE P0RN THREAD - Page 24

post #346 of 1313
Can someone advise which size I should get in the Badminton? The are on the 026 last in width G.

I normally wear 10.5 E in American shoes.

I usually have 10.5 but had to size down to 10 for most Loake shoes except for boots. No experience with AE though.

Both my AE pairs are 10.5 E and I have Loake 9.5 on the Capital last, and even those are a bit roomy.

I have a couple of pairs of Loakes on the 026 and calculating the fit depends on the width fitting. In a G fit you should go down a full size; if it is an F, then just drop 1/2 a size.

If you poke around the Pediwear site there is a detailed listing of all the fitting nuances of all the Loake lasts that you should find helpful.

Can any one with the Loake Aldwych in dark brown comment on which Saphir wax colour you use? The colour is somewhere in between these two sets of photos. I'm torn between medium brown or the dark brown.

I have not worn them/conditioned for a while, but I mix two Saphir colours together 50/50 for all over the shoes and then a 80 dark 20 lighter for the toe box. The shoes are actually lighter in person then expected from the various internet pictures.

Great information, thank you.

 

When mixing the two colours, how do you do this? Just roughly using the polishing cloth or in another container somehow?

I use a piece of alluminium foil and wooden ice lolly sticks to take the cream from the Saphir pot and then mix it. When I was a kid in Italy the creams we used at home were in a toothpaste like squeezable tab and I picked up the foil technique then by squeezing directly onto the foil.

Anyone have experience with the Bayswater? Looks pretty nice.

No but I just received a pair of Wharfdale and they are huge for their size.

i am wearing UK 81/2 or 9 usually.I order them in81/2 and they are about 1cm longer than Hudson shoes in 9 and 2 fingers longer than my Grenson Sid shoes in 8 which are said to run large.

I am now thinking about an 8 but even then, I fear it will be still too big ... and I am wearing thicker winter socks.

So be prepared to return them if needed.

The Bayswater is on the 026 last which runs very true to size, whereas the Wharfedale is on the country style Pennine last (G fit) which is huge. Here is a nice link to Loake lasts:
