Attn. anyone who owns and uses a Chapman Sten Holdall bag: I notice that the adjustable hardware on the straps appears to be right where you would grip the bag. Seems to me this would be potentially uncomfortable, especially if you're carrying a full load. What's your experience as to carrying comfort?

Not a problem. Easy to carry. I have a pic of my bag somewhere in this thread, but I can't remember if you can see the strap. As Greg has mentioned, love the ability to put jacket or sportcoat under the top flap. Bag is very sturdy and steal at the sale price.

Cool, thanks. What color did you go with?

It's easy to carry by hand or over the shoulder (or both shoulders). There's a pic I posted a week and a half ago where I was wearing it on both shoulders because I got stuck carrying for 5 hours. Very useful bag.

Oh right, I remember seeing that. What color'd you go with? (don't remember that and too lazy to search)

I was beginning to think I was the only person on the planet for whom the Buttero sneaks did not fit. Just had a revelation (sometimes my bulb does not burn too brightly): they will not accommodate my orthotics. My foot kept feeling like it was getting pushed forward and crushed. Duh. Volume too low and footbed too rigid to tamp down (don't have this problem with any other shoes I own).

So...tried taking out orthotics and fit is great. Not so great as I rely on same to keep my feet from freaking out. Then tried taking out footbed and placing orthotic in; again comfortable fit. I wonder if there is a reason I should not do this: hygenic, premature breakdown of shoe due to sweat, etc? Not sure how comfortable this would be in the long run anyway without the structure the footbed provides to the forefoot.

So...here's a thought: what if I cut off the heel portion of footbed and replace remaining forefoot portion along with orthotic that runs from heel to arch? Anyone ever tried something like this? Stupid idea? Sacrilege to eff with structural aspect of shoe (and remove attractive inner logo as well)?

@Murlsquirl Hard luck, man. May cause strained relations with your SO, but at least you'll be out there in the blogosphere lookin' good! cool.gif

I now have a confirmed Vass size. This could be dangerous.

Did you try the U last? I had to size up in that. I've posted these before, but these Vass from NMWA are are definitely one of the most stunning pairs of shoes I own. Highly recommended!

I had to grab the new suede wingtips. Had to, right?

Fred, we're fraternal twin shoe brothers.

I also grabbed another Farnese tubo and Big John shrink to fit jeans. The size of the unshrunk jeans is a bit intimidating. I have to trust the guidance of others on their sizing.
