You sized down from Rain? That is already a rather generous last in the instep and heel area.

I have slightly wide feet, especially at the toes, and Rain is too tight for me widthwise while the 915 is close to perfect. I think the 915 fits like C&Js 348 albeit a bit less elongated and with better arch support, and looking a hell of a lot better; it certainly looks like a top-tier last. I received my balmoral oxfords this week, and they have quikly become one of my favourite pairs. I will write a review ASAP.

+1.  I have all 3 lasts.  Unfortunately I just have 1 last on the 915.

Congrats. Ive been pretty curious about the shade of Yanko blue calf. Looking forward to it.

I was concerned that these would be to "black" as I've noticed some navy shoes can be.
These are a much richer blue definitely more on the purple side than the black, if that makes sense.
The leather is very soft, but feels substantial with no stiffness.

Very nice good shoes.  Congrats!!

I recently bought a pair of Yanko's from Skolyx.

They are a great value shoe. Very well made, with decent, though not outstanding quality leather. In saying that, It would be silly to expect C&J or EG quality materials at this price point.

The real standout was the friendly and ongoing customer service from Emil @ Skolyx. Lots of emails to make sure the sizing was right, etc.

So what did you get?! And how was sizing compared to your typical US/UK size?

I can also vouch for the great customer support by Emil!

I got Yanko Chelsea boots on the 915 and I'm wondering what the intended fit is. The shoe feels about right in the forefoot are, acceptable in the heel.

At ankle height the there is space front and back between the upper leather and my foot/leg. Left and right the elastics only touch my foot.

The uppers only fit my instep in the lower part.

Is this acceptable? The size feels right in most areas except from the upper part of my instep to at ankle height, I have only minimal heel slippage and otherwise don't slide around in the shoe.

How are Chelseas meant to fit?

That sounds about right, if you want them to fit like socks you probably have to go bespoke.
