Quick question....I bought a pair of medium sized shoe trees from JOS A Bank for my size 9D JCrew Indys.  They fit pretty tight, should I be concerned of stretching or anything like that with the tree in?

 and others who have scored from Anatomica are just showing how wrong I was to think that way. 


Just a bit clownish wink.gif

Those ravello anatomica boots are awesome! I never really cared too much for plain toe boots or the modified last but the last few pages have changed my mind.

Thanks gentlemen.
I'm getting used to modified lasted boots as well. They're light, comfortable, and really showcase shell. I still struggle with how they look from certain angles, but they've been growing on me. I feel fortunate to have them and hope to keep in the rotation from now on.

What do people make of Saphir edge dressing? I have my first pair of shell (975) and want to do some touching up.

What a pair of shoes, incidentally. At first I really wanted the antique trim a la Leffot but the black has totally won me over. Wore them last week with a three piece navy suit, this with jeans and an army green wool/cashmere topcoat from JCrew. Unstoppable with almost anything.

Cheers,

The hat and shoes are in the same ballpark.
