I really do love the black Naval boot. They are one of my favorite boots.
not gonna happen this round but get your name on the list for the next one. These get restocked every 12-15 months. I have been waiting about 14 months now and am #1 on the 8.5
This version has speed hooks.
Grant is usually a half size up for people. I'm not sure what wide or narrow sizes are ordered during each run, but it's worth it to give them a ring once they get the boots in their system. I know there was at least one 8E from the last batch that I tried on 4 or 5 months ago. I think that pair sold, but I could be wrong.
Edit: The 8E pair I tried on was also a little "off." One boot was a fair bit lighter than the other because it sat out on the floor for a while. I know you could also lighten the other boot with some sun exposure, but it's just something to consider.
