Don't have the Charlton, but I have 2 pairs in the 99 last, it's close to half a size smaller, if you have wider feet, I reckon if just for medium size feet, same size.

How does the 109 on the Armfield compare to the 724? Seems the toe is more rounded, wider at the ball and heel's a tad narrower...

correct, can't feel the heel difference though. and since the toe is more rounded, it's slightly longer.

My latest cap toe. Part of the Original Collection of the Trading Post, a Japanese shoe store. These are made exclusively for them by Central Shoes Tokyo.

 

I love how sleek and finely finished these cap-toes are. Notice also the slight tapering of the distance between the lacing holes.

 

 

Fit Pic (Please ignore the Chinos I was wearing)

 

 

 

And here it is compared with my "rounder" AE Park Avenues

Very good looking pair!
May I ask how much you have paid for them?
post #203 of 576

^^Thank you. They cost about 400USD. They also offer full-recrafting of the shoes for about 130USD.

That sounds very reasonable for a shoe as lovely looking as that!
Would you mind sharing pictures of a side view, the sole and maybe the heel?

Not a problem at all. Here you go:

 

 

 

I didn't take a picture of the heel from behind the shoe, but it slightly gets narrower towards the base (hope that makes sense).

Nice, all these shoes demonstrate how much "rounder" AE is.

Jason, love the shoes, especially its shinny finish, like my JL City Ii. The Japanese sure does some nice shoes at a fairly low price range.

Thanks for the shots, I think Louis wants to see how the heel seam is finished.
