Gentlemen,

I am not affiliated with Skoaktiebolaget in any way but want to bring your attention to three GMTOs they are currently holding which offer sizes down to UK 5.0. Check them out here:

Unfortunately I don't have any experience with Bonafe shoes. Maybe you can email them for fitting advice. They also have an affiliate thread here on SF.

Kindly note that the deposit 2160 SEK ex VAT / 2700 SEK inc. VAT is only 50% of the full price. The remaining 50% will be billed before delivery. Think this price is slightly less than Vass but the latter offer shoe trees. As for the price difference vs St Crispin's, I guess the same applies to GYW shoes where you find huge price differences amongst various brands.

Loake cannon double monk(I believe this is one of their classic style)

capital last

size 5.5F(I think 5F may also work but don't have the oppurtunity to try)

fit: fits nicely, though I have to buckle the strap to the tightest of 3 holes(oh the low insteps), but it worked out fine!:slayer:

 

 

here are some pics

a few shoe care procedures I do before wearing my new shoes:

 

1, use shoe cream/Reno on the stitches/welt, apply with a small brush if the upper is suede and you don't want to get the creams on suede; This will moisture the stiches on the welt at least;

 

2, for ordinary calf, apply renovateur on the upper, leave it for 30min, then apply shoe cream and let it absorb for another 30min; for suede upper, I use suede renovateur spray first, then water repellent product (this should be done in a well-ventilated area, not indoors, the solvent are supposed to be toxic);

 

3, brush with a big horsehair brush to remove excess cream on calf/use a crepe brush to smooth out the suede;

 

4,  optional, apply wax and shine the calf upper, I don't need these but many would recommond it;

 

5, good to go!

 

one more thing on suede shoes, if the suede is good reversed calf suede, before the first wear I sometimes use renovateur on the grain side(inside) of the most stressed sites like the vamp, don't know if this is working but it won't hurt!

 

everyone are welcome to chime in!:)

Edward Green Halifax boot in nugmeg suede

82 last

size 5.5E

fit: fits wonderfully, a little snug in the toe/instep area (suprise!), but I believe they will break in in a few days!

 

recommending the 82 last for people with low insteps!

 

 

 

 

after suede care!

well, I have worn none of your listed brands so can't really comment, you can try this site: sizeadvisors.com, it requires some measurements thought.

 

good luck!:happy:

:violin:

I am UK 6. 

 

EG Chelsea 82 last 6E

EG Westminster 202 last 6E

 

JL chapel 8000 last 6E

JL City II 7000 last 6E

 

Sometimes I wish I had bigger feet because the shoes look soooooo much better.

agreed, I think the original last is designed on a popular size like 8 or 9, so the look will be best for that size, the proportion of shoe compartments can be off at sizes on the edges, especially on the smaller end.

 

on a side note, I noticed that you wear the same size in JL and EG,  do they fit the same on you? or being loose/tight for some models? for what I have read, people tends to size up 0.5 in EG compared to JL. or EG is half size smaller than JL.

 

It will help a lot to describe your own foot type (flat foot vs high arch, narrow vs wide, etc) and comment on the fit of each last on your feet.

 

Welcome to the club, Cheers!

Gentlemen, Edward Green finally opened an online shop. Chelsea in dark oak antique on the 202 last is available in UK size 5 with a choice of "E" and "F" widths. But if you're a 5.5E then Skoak has a cheaper pair in 82 last
