Some Pics of Saint Crispin's Shoes - Page 9

post #121 of 159
Guys,

Looking to get an SC on the Classic Last. I am a UK8 on C&J's 337 last and Carmina's Inca Last and a US9D on the Alden's Leydon last.

What size should I be on the SC Classic Last? Mr. Car advised a UK8F.

Any advice or thoughts to help me out.

Thanks!

Listen to Philipp. He won't advise bad.
I wear 7.5 in Carmina and 8 on C&J 337. For me UK8E from StC was better than 8F.

Have been asking around and the advise has been the same.

Now pondering on which last to go with. Mr. Car is recommending either the Classic or Riva last. I do not want something which is elongated like C&J's 348 last. It would be more in between Carmina's Inca and C&J's 337 last.

+1 on Phillip's sizing recommendations... FWIW, you can't go wrong with the classic last.

Got to know that the StC has strong arch support. I have flat feet and the support could make it uncomfortable.

Any comments?

It looks like what SC calls "Inca leather".

I presume, you're both right.

My guess, judging by the pictures, it's a bovine leather with an imprint to resemble llama leather which has a very fine all-over crimped texture (rather like crêpe de Chine). Hence the name "Inca leather".

Its am embossed calf leather.. SC refers to it as TCK.. not sure what it stands for..

here's the descriptions of some of the calf leather SC offers...

VNA French aniline-dyed calfskin. The colours 072, 074, 076 can be additionally tamponed on the last, thereby acquiring an antique finish.

TCK Embossed calfskin. May also be tamponed on request.

CRA – Calf Crust This specialist term is used to denote leather after it has been tanned and dyed in the vat but before it has been finished (“prepared”). The “preparation” consists to ironing the crust, embossed, waxed or shined so that it receives its final characteristics and appearance. Our CRUST IS 1.2mm thick. All preparation takes place in our workshops. For obvious reasons we cannot give precise details of the process here, though in essence the crust is treated—in a number of steps—using colouring tinctures and waxes until a deep, transparent shine with the typical antique effect is achieved. CRUST is surface-sealed with wax alone so that its suppleness and high degree of wearing comfort is maintained. Since most of the work stages are carried out on the finished shoe, slight differences of colour cannot be avoided. For shoe care, generally available shoe polish is needed.
