Julian's are MTO. They have you take detailed measurements of each foot and send in pencil outlines. So the size will be pretty bang on unless you get your measurements wrong.
As for price, they start at about $800. Double for shell.
There aren't many places you can buy them off the rack. They're a very small manufacture. RRL sometimes has a run of them. I think Barneys does too. But they'll cost the same as MTO, so I don't know why anyone would buy them pre-made.
Thank you for your reply. I should have mentioned I am looking at a RRL on eBay right now not to order one directly from Julian yet. Thats why Im asking members that own Julian boots if they can compare their other boots so I can make an informed judgement. Again I am a 7.5 E (Whites, Red Wing, Alden), 8.5 W Bannock / running shoe. Sometime I can wear an 8D, like in Chippewa and others - and the pair online is an 8D, so I'm trying to determine if I should give these a try.
Understood about the MTO - I am a big White's fan, have 8 pair all MTO, but had a time sizing. Just as you mention Whites asks for a pencil outline as well as tape measurements. They use those measurements to try to find the right size last to build my boot on. I'm guessing thats what Julian does. From what I understand (and I could be wrong) to get a boot truly custom made to your foot, molds need to be produced to build a last.
Appreciate all input.
