Also to clarify, the natural sole edge is the dark natural you were referring to in your earlier post?@ThunderMarch
can you share your experience with 804?
Hey, not an easy question for me to answer but I'll try my best.
First of all, I'm in between sizes. 8.25uk probably best describes me.
I have ...
804 in Balmoral boots uk 8.5
946 in uk 8.5 (chukka) and UK 8 (Oxford)
They all fit ok. The Oxford a little snug but works. The chukkas and boots just a touch loose ... But I normally wear boots a little loose cos tight boots to me are disastrous.
Ppl say that the 804 is elongated. I do not think so, after comparing both 8.5s side by side.
The 804 is supremely well proportioned. It's sleek and dressy but not tight in any way. In fact, it feels like it has a roomier ball of foot area than even the 946. Insteps feel comparable. The toe box feels generous too.
I'm now in a quandary as to whether to go with 8 or 8.5.
Gimme some time fellas. The gmto closes Nov 16. I'll surely put an order in before that.
