More Prawn! - Saint Crispin's Two-Eyelet Derby - Page 2

post #16 of 33
The waist looks especially well done - though potentially painful for anyone who doesn't have a high instep.

Not exactly for me (as with most of what I've seen in the Crispin catalogue) but it's just nice to see you get something other than a dress boot.

You're right. That just looks like the pegging of the waist which is very cool. The one I am speaking of is kind of funky, but they were a sample.

I feel cheated, no prawns in this thread! Nice shoes however.

The discloration on the sole in pic #3 is simply the pegging of the waist. The angle at which I took the pic distorts the image somewhat.

Really? I have only 3 boots - EG Olney (not a dress), the SC Balmoral (green suede tops, so again not a dress) and the Shannon posted just a few days ago. Think you may be confusing me with Sator

Yes - Saint Crispin's is an MTO operation so all sizes and widths are possible. The color is interesting and unlike anythng I've seen before - a dark reddish brown - say 65% brown and 35% dark red (I'm being stupid but you get the idea).

Good, I always wonder if flash or photography in general highlights things that are not really an issue in person.

I love that St. Crispin last - it's absolutely timeless.

Good looking shoes and the last is beautifully simple....

I have never tried the old Saint crispin shoes...They 're on my list for later....

Lovely shoes. May they give you much pleasure.

Amazingly beautiful. I love the waist treatment, the finishing issue cited by AF is a non-issue to me. I notice the shoe stamped size 10.5E, Panzer, what's your usual American size? How do you convert SC size into American one? How do your SC fit?

i love these st crispins. very nice shoes.

although , just my preference, any london 2-3 eyelet derby style is more aesthetic in a chiseled toe as i see that derby as more formalized , and probably on top of the formal food chain for derbies in general.

still ,love those crispins.


although, now that i look at it a second time, the ghillies action do cancel out the formalization of the london derby , so i think the round toe do make sense
