does anyone know why some boot models have this stitching running across the sides of the upper? e.g. jumper boots

curious as to why other boot models don't have it.. does this serve a particular function or is it purely aesthetics?

I'm down about 70 pounds, and my shoe size remained the same. YMMV, of course.

Yes. I went down .5 size when I lost about 70 lbs 3 or so years back.

I know women's feet often change sizes with pregnancy, so I'm not surprised it can happen to dudes who gain or lose a lot of weight. My secretary went up a shoe size with her last pregnancy, and suddenly found herself unable to wear a good chunk of her fabulous size 6 shoe wardrobe. My wife is a 6, so she was the lucky recipient of about $10,000 worth of barely worn Louboutin, Fendi, and Chanel shoes.

Moral of the story: be nice to your secretary and compliment her style. Her husband may be a lot richer than you, and the local consignment shop's loss may be your wife's gain.

Pregnant women frequently can't fit their shoes bc of water retention, not so much the weight gain.  After your secretary has her baby she will most likely be able to fit her nice shoes again, even if she can't lose all of the weight gained from the pregnancy.

I lost about 50 pounds a few years back and my shoe size went down half of a size.

Get a medium. If you are in between size go up. Otherwise your trees may be useless. Too often I see alden with trees in them and yet they are still wrinkly. The tree should fill out the vamp and toe

Been looking for snuff suede chukkas on a crepe sole for a while. Finally found them at j.crew, of all places.

^ Morgan, what drew you to this particular makeup. It's rather unusual
post #34275 of 79100
Namor, my sand suede chukkas on the Leydon last with a single oiled leather sole are great, but they seem a little dainty sometimes, especially with heavy denim and sweaters. I wanted a chunkier look in a darker color, and I find the crepe sole really, really comfortable.
