Christian Kimber Appreciation Thread - Page 5

Anyone want a good deal on some chocolate suede chukkas in 8D NIB? Picked them up final sale and just want my money back. $235 cash in Manhattan (otherwise willing to ship in a week + shipping fees and + PayPal fees). Otherwise willing to swap if by some miracle someone has an 8E.

Killing the game as usual, Gerry worship.gif . I've only had my Apertures for about a week and I'm already pretty much living in them. You have your eye on anything in particular from the new collection? I'm thinking another pair of Apertures and probably a pair of Byrons  will have to join the ranks for me.

Too kind, man! I'm not sure yet but it's early days smile.gif

Does anyone know if the drop heel strap loafer is available in brown suede inside the US? I see it in Grey at Bloomiies but really like the brown and would rather not roll the dice on import taxes.

If you want them, I'd say go ahead and just pull the trigger from Christian. Shipping is super fast to the US and, although I don't wish to jinx myself, I've been fortunate enough to not have to pay import taxes on all three of the shipments I've had delivered so far.

I did and I have to say that dealing directly with Christian on email makes me appreciate how hard guys like him, Anthony with Eidos and Greg at NMWA work to build and sustain their dreams. As someone who has sacrificed the risk of 'going for it' in exchange for a steady payday I feel really good about spending my money on their wares at the full/fair price.

I couldn't agree more :fistbump:

Any more thoughts on the sizing of the Aperture sneaker? The Kimber website states that it runs large and you should size down. So if I'm a size US9.5 (EU42.5), I should go with size US9 (EU42)? Or size down even more?

I would say going half size down is good. I'm usually UK6,5 (EU40) and my Aperture sneakers are EU40. That's the smallest size I could get from those and I wear them with an extra inner sole, so I guess EU 39,5 would have been just perfect.

And need to say I really like my Apertures. Wasn't so sure in the first place but they are actually even better when you get them into your hands (and feet) than they are in pictures.

A few shots of my own pair:
