post #77206 of 122416

How much do 405 Indy's stretch out after they're broken in? Just wondering how they should feel when trying them on..

 

1) Snug & comfortable

2) A bit tight & slightly uncomfortable

3) Squeezing to get in & uncomfortable

 

I feel like it should be at 2, but if they don't loosen up to get to 1 then that's not good. I'm also worried about it fitting perfectly when they're new and then stretching to be too big.

 

Thoughts?

I did not receive the list even though I have received it before....called the store to request 3 sizes and only received 1 of the 3....if anyone has the 11.5 list please send a PM.

I'm the one that was confused.  The #8 Dovers were one of the other pairs I had some interest in also.  But again, I was trying to be funny (not very successfully though).

Nothing real exciting in Bigfoot size on the 2nds list except for a size 13C tassels in cigar. I've already got those.

Glad some y'all made some good scores today.

See Ya,
Steve

Anything good in 11 E? (I'm guessing everything is gone anyways). 11.5d/e weren't too great

Haha after reading your post, I checked my spam and sure enough got the confirm. Hoping these #8 captoes fit!

I haven't gotten an order confirmation yet either. But I figured that they were absolutely swamped. They must dread sending out the seconds list. I would.

Cigars after a few wears.



Full-Straps with massive bloom.

@mdubs - those cigar capote bals are great--any chance it's 11.5D? satisfied.gif

I could only imagine how it was a couple months back when they had the flood of discounted whiskey, ravello and cigar

I don't know if I'm more jealous of the shoes or the fact that his grass is green...more snow on the ground this morning.

Sorry to near about the snow boys, I panic if I'm wearing shells and it drizzles.

I doubt it since the last few times it's been pretty weak. This time did have quite a few good finds but I'm on my buying hiatus so . . . :violin:
